(Our last Viewpoint featured Presidential Candidate Virgil Goode).
When we think of some of the presidential and vice presidential material that Americans have suffered with over recent years, it is rather amazing that from among over 300 million citizens we could actually choose some of the least qualified to lead our Republic. Of course, we realize that certain leaders are foisted upon us by the “invisible government” of internationalists who also control the media and thoroughly indoctrinate the captivated public.
I thought of this matter of qualifications when I read the biographical information about our Constitution Party Vice Presidential candidate James (Jim) N. Clymer. Relatively few men in America could boast his dedication and accomplishments for the cause of righteousness and constitutional government in America spanning a lifetime of service.
Pennsylvania-born (1948) Jim Clymer resides in the college town where he graduated from Millersville (PA) University in 1972 with a B.S. in History (cum laude). He then earned a Juris Doctor degree from Washburn University School of Law, 1978 (cum laude), Topeka, Kansas. He was admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar in 1978 and has practiced law since that time with emphasis on estate and business planning, elder law, commercial real estate, and business organization and development. He heads the law firm Clymer, Musser and Conrad P.C. in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, which also has an extensive civil rights litigation practice with a focus on civil rights secured under the First and Fourth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution. Clymer has represented clients in a variety of cases dealing with constitutional and religious liberty issues as well as working with several national organizations committed to protecting religious liberty, including the American Center for Law and Justice, National Legal Foundation, Rutherford Institute, and Home School Legal Defense Association.
In his dedication to constitutional government in our nation, Clymer has offered his services in a number of positions through the Constitution Party as follows:
Constitution Party candidate for U.S. Senate in PA, 2004
Constitution Party candidate for Lancaster County Commissioner, 2003
Constitution Party candidate for Lt. Governor of PA, 1998
Former National Chairman, Constitution Party National Committee, 1999-2012
Other distinctions as follows:
Board Member, The Conservative Caucus
Life Member, Gun Owners of America
National Rifle Association
Instrument rated private pilot.
Jim is active in political, Christian and civic organizations, having served on numerous boards and assisted organizations promoting life, liberty and limited government. He has been active in representing churches, Christian schools, home educators and crisis pregnancy centers. He is a frequent speaker, teacher and seminar panelist on a wide range of legal issues and has been interviewed on many national radio and television shows.
Clymer’s concern about the encroachment of government and the erosion of liberty has not only affected his political involvement but is evident in his law practice as well, where he has frequently represented home schooling families, churches, Christian students, schools and religious organizations and individuals whose rights to the free exercise of their religious beliefs are being challenged either by government officials or agency regulations.
Candidate Jim Clymer is married to Lois and they have five children and eleven grandchildren. He is active in church and para-church organizations having served as deacon, elder, Sunday school teacher and Bible study teacher and on numerous boards. He serves on the Board of Directors for Dayspring Christian Academy. He loves the outdoors where he does gardening, hunting, fishing and hiking. As an instrument rated private pilot, he also enjoys flying and aviation activities.
American citizens should be proud to have a Vice President Clymer who really cares for constitutional government and the constitutional rights of the people in a Republic, dedicated to the defense of our people under righteous law, justice and truth.
“Our American independence is as much in jeopardy today as it was during the dark days of the American Revolution.” James N. Clymer
