Video: Dr. Alan Keyes Interviewed on “Missouri Viewpoints”

April 28th, 2008 by mopns · No Comments

Just hours after falling short in his bid for the Constitution Party’s Presidential nomination on Saturday, former US Ambassador Alan Keyes sat down with Mike Ferguson to discuss his thoughts on the events of the party’s convention, the state of America and his political future.

The convention took place at the Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in downtown Kansas City.

Dr. Keyes made it clear that he is not done working in politics, saying he is “…called to a role in politics…”

Disputing claims by some of those in the CP leadership, Keyes states that he was invited to stand as a candidate for the nomination and then proverbially stabbed in the back by many in the party.

He described his opinion of Constitution Party saying it “…professes to be for liberty and self-government [and] is, in fact, governed by a spirit of dictatorship and despotism.” Keyes also stated he believes he was rejected because he would not sign on to some party platform positions he described as “…not truly Constitutional.”

During the interview, Keyes said he will stay involved in politics in some way and that he “…will continue to champion all those things that are consistent with what I believe to be the calling to stand for the justice and liberty that our country is rooted on: the authority of Almighty God.”

When asked is his campaign for the Presidency will continue as an Independent this year or if he will run for office again in the future, Keyes was noncommittal, saying he plans to pray about what is next and “It’s in God’s hands.”
