August is National Romance Awareness Month.
We are being swamped with political mailings, emails, advertising, and phone calls. During this month, take some time to relax and put some romance in your life. It is easy to get forget the good things in life.
That being said, this newsletter is about the Independent American Party and is about politics so don’t expect and romantic poems or songs in this newsletter.
You can make a difference.
Virgil Goode, the IAP Presidential Candidate, will be in Las Vegas.

Republic needs a strict rule of law
by Tom Jones
An article in the Las Vegas Sun was titled “Republic needs a strict rule of law”.
A republic is a form of government that is governed by law. Our country was founded as a republic governed by the Constitution, which is the law of the land. In recent times, the Constitution has been reinterpreted in many ways. Is the United States still a republic?
The author of a column in the Sun entitled “In the good old days” states, “Well, I’ve said before that, just as the framers of the Constitution were imperfect, so was that hallowed manuscript they created. Those Founding Fathers’ greatest gift was drafting a document that would be adaptable to the changing times that were sure to come and indeed keep coming.”
Of course, the Constitution may need updating, but the framers provided a way to change it. You change it with an amendment. If the courts can change it with their interpretation, we do not have a government by law but by interpretation. There is no law at all if a judge can change it any time with his decision.
A republic needs a strict rule of law. If times change, the law must be changed to adapt. Congress and the states must pass an amendment to the Constitution. We cannot have judges change it with their rulings, even if it is the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court’s purpose is to determine if a law is constitutional or not. The Supreme Court must have a strict interpretation of the Constitution. If the Supreme Court expands or changes the original interpretation, the Constitution becomes meaningless and we do not have a republic.
Some are funny. Some are Beautiful. Some are just weird.
Every newsletter will have an Interesting Links section.
We hope that you enjoy them.
Democrats, GOP aren’t only options
by Tom Jones
This letter was also published in the Las Vegas Sun.
In Michael K. Casler’s letter to the editor entitled “Parties don’t seem to deserve support”, he points out the Republican party and the Democratic party both are causing deficit problems. He then asks, “Now, please remind me again of which of these wonderful parties I should be supporting”.
In Nevada, we have 12 other parties that he could support. 3 of these parties have ballot access. The largest of these 12 parties is the Independent American Party which has 17 candidates running in this year’s elections. In the Nevada Senate race in District 1, there are only 2 candidates. One is Gregory Hughes, an Independent American Candidate, and the other is a Democrat.
For voters like Mr. Casler who are not happy with the 2 party system, you can make a difference by voting for one of the other political parties in Nevada.
The Senate District 1 Election
This is a very important election in several ways.
- It is a State Senate Election and the State Senate majority is at stake. Both the Republicans and Democrats are concentrating on about 5 key races to try to gain the majority vote in the senate. This race is conceded to the Democrats because they have an overwhelimg percentage of the registered voters in this district. Therefore, the Republicans didn’t have a candidate in this race.
- In this district, Gregory Hughes, an IAP candidate, is running against only one other candidate who is a Democrat. This presents a great opportunity to get an IAP candidate elected to the Nevada Senate.
- If Gregory wins this election, it would be national news. It would enable the IAP to be a major party in Nevada and demonstrate that a third party can win a major election. You can make a difference.
Gregory needs donations to purchase more yard signs and brochures. He has volunteers who want to put up his yard signs and he doesn’t have any left. He also needs brochures to continue his canvassing of the District.
