Corsi on the GOP and Possible 2008 Run

Jerry Corsi, co-author of the New York Times best seller Unfit for Command and columnist for the conservative web site World Net Daily, has been mentioned as a possible candidate for the Constitution Party's next Presidential nominee. Mr. Corsi answered these questions for The Conservative President 2008.

1. Where do you believe the Republican Party is headed?

If the Republican Party continues to ignore its conservative base, then the Party is headed to oblivion.

2. Do you think that you could support any of the potential 2008 Republican nominees for President?

None of the ones I have seen so far. Unfortunately, even Sam Brownback lost my support when the supported the “guest worker” amnesty plan contained in S.2611 co-sponsored by Kennedy and McCain.

3. Do you think that the Republican Party will ever be what you would call a conservative party?

I have given up thinking we can reform the Republican Party. The Rockefeller Republicans are fully in control and it is getting hard to tell the difference between most Republicans today and the more conservative Democrats.

4. If a candidate were to arise that was right on every issue but is pro-choice, is that a good enough reason not to vote for that candidate?

No way. I have no intention to support any Republican candidate who is pro-choice, period.

5. Will you run for President in 2008?

Howard Phillips of the Constitution Party asked me to consider seriously running for president in 2008 and I am doing so.

Dr. Corsi is on the short list of people that I would vote for in the next presidential election.

Others include, but are not limited to: Rep. Ron Paul, Rep. Tom Tancredo, Dr. Alan Keyes (for whom I carried petitions and made a speech in 2000), Michael Peroutka, and Rev. Chuck Baldwin.

Any of those men would be a fine choice for president. One of them for president, and another for vice-president, would be even better. (And, hopefully, any of them would have a job for me in their administration....)

Putting a candidate of the Constitution Party into the White House would be an excellent way to say "none of the above" to the Big Two political "duopoly".

One way to help that happen is for military veterans to become a solid and active political force. Other organizations (American Legion, VFW, etc.) are non-partisan. Thus, they do not support particular parties or candidates. All of the veterans that I know support the principles of the Constitution Party. So, they (and millions of others) should join the new National Veterans Coalition.

Don't fall for the MSM's mantra about the "two-party system in America". There never was a two-party system! Back in 1856, when the Republican Party was formed, they were the fourth party to weigh in on the slavery issue alone!

Of all the current candidates who have actually declared, Duncan Hunter is the best. McCain, Giuliani, Rice (who has hinted), Brownback, and Huckabee all support the third-world invasion of the United States. Romney and Gingrich now say they are anti-immigration, but both of them have documented pasts (especially Gingrich) of supporting the third-world invasion of the United States. If Tancredo declares, then support for Hunter may evaporate. Otherwise, Hunter may be the best shot. There is also the possibility of Lou Dobbs at the Reform Party. Many bloggers are trying to draft him. Although he may now be a little too socially liberal for some paleos, he does have the right views on the three big issues: he’s against the war in Iraq, against free trade, and against the third-world invasion of the United States. I think immigration is so important I’d compromise on some social issues for a strong anti-immigration candidate. There is also a rumor that Rep. Ron Paul (TX) and Jerome Corsi (Human Events) may team up and run for the nomination of the Constitution Party.

Be wary of Corsi. He suggested in January 2002 that the United States capture Osama bin Laden and move him to Iraq so that "we have an excuse to bring them the Holey Month of BOMB-adon. Iraq with Saddam sounds as good a place to park him as anywhere. Let's Roll!"

I plan to write-in Michael Peroutka.

Of course you do Joe. You will be one of 10.

Meanwhile, Jerome Corsi just officially announced for the CP Presidential nomination!
