More about Randall Yearout

On this race:

Elected Experience: No information submitted

Other Professional Experience: Other Professional Experience – Randall writes and produces the Constitution Minute radio commentaries for Red White and Blue Collar Radio. He has been a member of Operating Engineers for 32 years and has also run his own saddle making business.

Education: Randall is self taught in the principles of the our nation's Constitution and founding documents, having spent the last decade studying these documents and the writings of the Founding Fathers.

Community Service: Randall has taught the Institute on the Constitution to numerous groups. He has spoken to various community political action groups and advised them with regard to governing principles.

Statement: I will use this office to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the guaranties provided by it for the protection of our God-given rights as citizens of this nation.

I am a middle-class dad and husband in work-boots with a great burden for the success of America. I have no vast or even modest fortune to protect or seek favor for other than American freedom and individual liberty for all of us and our descendants. My study for the last ten years has been of the Constitution and those who conceived it, and has given me an unshakable belief that the creation of this nation and its founding documents were superintended by divine Providence; that our two major political parties have abandoned those principles which made us free, peaceable, and prosperous. The Constitution Party has been established by that same Providence to provide a place where those longing for a return to Constitutionally limited government can join without having their own leadership oppose them; that the path to the blessings of the Almighty for this nation are contained in the ancient wisdom and faith of our founders and the Natural law they used as the anchor of their nation building.

I am a “Constitutionist” - I do not believe that statute law, treaty, executive order, Act of Congress, or court ruling trumps the Constitution or the Natural law which the founders used to fashion it. Today’s breathtaking federal encroachment into the sovereignty of the Union states and the people is mostly illegitimate and outside the delegated powers we the people gave it. I will be joining those in Congress who are committed to a restoration of Constitutionally limited government, and have a proper understanding of the ninth and tenth Amendments.
