Enjoy the White House program- There are many bedrooms/ bathrooms in the white house.

The constitution party makes government seem like a cruel and corrupt system. They say that both sides of the government are corrupt & that they can make a change. They want to put the American people in charge by a program called meet and vote. They believe that elected officials should be the ones to carry out the actions that the people decide on, not the other way around. They believe in staying as close to the constitution as possible. They believe that our founding fathers made the best plan for America and that we should do our best to abide by it.
