Beyond the fanfare and drama of the Democratic and GOP campaigns for the presidency are the third or minor parties. Because these candidates are driven by conviction rather than a likely chance at power, they tend to shoot from the hip, and that is why Darrell Castlewas such a welcome guest on the show.

Castle is the candidate for the Constitution Party, a party that stands for no compromise on adherence to the US Constitution. A Tennessee lawyer, he could loosely be called paleoconservative, but he is very libertarian in his orientation. His party first came to my attention in 2004, and its history dates back to 1991, when it was called the US Taxpayers’ Party.

Darrell Castle, candidate for president, advocates nothing short of adherence to the US Constitution and the limited powers listed in Article 1, Section 8. (Castle 2016)
