Is The Georgia Constitution Party Next To Disaffiliate?

Speculation is building as to the course of action of the so-called third "Muskateer", Ricardo Davis of the Constitution Party of Georgia.  Ricardo is a longtime stalwart of the CP.  The recent failure of his request to convene an emergency national committee meeting apparently precipitated the departures of both the Illinois and Texas CPs.  Is the Georgia CP next?

No question. The national CP needs to assess WHERE they are, and where they are going. That needs to be initiated by the states. Not the Kublai Khan executive board stuffed to capacity with genetically cloned wanna-be Ghenghis heirs.

The party is literally upside down. It needs to figure out WHAT they are doing, versus what they hope to do. Those are not the same. They've obviously not got it synchronized, and are now grinding gears to the point that no motion will be possible at all if they don't figure it out.

They've abandoned WHY and long ago lost HOW. Not a one of them knows WHEN. Dumb beasts in the field have a better concept of reality than does the national CP.

Like I said, honest introspection is not one of their strong suits.

If the reporter would have called me to remove all speculation then it would have made the article less tantalizing.

First, there has been no failure to date -- the effort to convene a special meeting of the CP National Committee (CPNC) is ongoing. The CPNC Bylaws specify three means to that effect: the National Chairman can call for the meeting, the National Executive Committee (NEC) can call for the meeting, and a majority of the CPNC can petition to call for the meeting. The next meeting of the NEC will address two means. The petition is currently being circulated amongst members of the CPNC.

Second, there has been no discussion amongst the CP-GA State Executive Committee or the CP-GA generally about the possibility of disaffiliation. Nor have I raised this as a course of action with the State Executive Committee. As I noted in one of the documents accompanying the petition, I intend to serve the remainder of my term as Southern Region Chairman with honor for the good of the party. I then plan to continue my focus on building and strengthening the CP-GA and electing local candidates.
