Constitutionalists Coming To CdA

Hucks Online sees that the Fall 2011 Constitution Party National Committee & Conference will be held Oct. 7-8 at the Coeur d'Alene Resort. Among the Constitution Party worthies expected to attend is former U.S. Rep Virgil Goode, who represented the Virginia 5th District and is considered the frontrunner for the party nomination although he hasn't made an official candidacy announcement. According to a Constitution Party news release, the fall convention originally was rewarded to Spokane, but Spokane area committee members suggested "that going across the state line to the Coeur d'Alene" Resort would be a better location. Full story here. The local Constitution Party, as you may recall, led the small protest against that public art display of Indian idol Ganesha on 6th & Sherman. So, with your help, I'd like to suggest things the Constitutionalists can do while they're in downtown Coeur d'Alene:

  • 1. Visit Ganesha statue
  • 2. Dine at Brazilian Steakhouse
  • 3. Visit Human Rights Education Center
  • 4. Read United Nations declaration on stone outside HREC

Question: Can you add to the list?
