National News Reports On A3P Candidate Harry Bertram

News sources have reported on the confirmed independent candidates added to the West Virginia Gubernatorial special election, A3P Party candidate Harry Bertram and a second independent candidate.

If elected, Bertram said he would not seek to expel non-whites from state jobs or to revive such segregation-era laws as the one banning interracial marriage.

“It’s not that I’m trying to strip non-whites of power,” he said. “I’m trying to point out discrimination against white people.” -Lawrence Messina for Westport News

American Third Position Qualifies for 2011 Special Election for West Virginia Governor

Richard Wagner | June 18th, 2011

West Virginia will be holding a special gubernatorial election on October 4, 2011, to elect a Governor. Five candidates will appear. Besides the Democratic and Republican nominees, two minor party candidates, and one independent, qualified. The two minor party candidates are the Mountain Party’s Bob Henry Baber, and Harry Bertram, nominee of the American Third Position Party. The independent candidate is Marla Ingels.

Bertram and Ingels qualified by petition, but the Mountain Party (the West Virginia affiliate of the Green Party) did not need to petition, because it is has been a ballot-qualified party since 2000. The Mountain Party chose its gubernatorial nominee by convention.

The American Third Position Party believes that government policy in the United States discriminates against whites, and that whites need their own political party to fight this discrimination. Harry Bertram, in the past, has been a nominee for public office of parties that no longer exist, but which had a similar point of view. In 1984 he was a National States Rights Party nominee for a seat in the Ohio legislature (although he ran in a Republican primary because the NSRP wasn’t on the ballot). In 1989 he was a National States Rights Party nominee for a township office in Ohio. In 1994 he was a Populist Party nominee for the West Virginia legislature, but in 1994 he was not able to surmount the petition requirement.

“The American Third Position Party is based in North Dakota and says it represents the white American voter. It says it seeks to preserve and continue ethnic European communities within the U.S.

Bertram considers himself a white nationalist. The 51-year-old believes his support of lower taxes and fewer regulations will resonate with voters. Bertram of Morgantown has previously run as a Republican and is now reaching out to the state’s tea party movement.” West Virginia Public Broadcasting, June 21, 2011

“Bertram submitted 3,760 signatures on May 20, one day before the deadline for ballot access petitions, Deputy Secretary of State Sheryl Webb said Tuesday. Lawmakers put the threshold at 1,765 signatures of registered voters when they set up this year’s special election. Bertram attracted signatures in all 55 counties except Clay, Logan, Wayne and Wirt, Webb said.” Daily Journal, June 21, 2011

Let’s band together and send Harry Bertram the resources he’ll need to win the election. Together we can win.

    I wish Mr. Bertram the best of luck. However. I have come to the grim conclusion that" tyrants never give up their power willingly. The hour is late and we are in the middle of a complete take over. We are running out of peaceful options in my opinion.

  2. Tony says:

    Go get 'em Harry! I am from Morgantown, so I wish you luck. I go back a couple of times a year and it is beautiful country. Let's try to preserve its heritage!

  3. sonicwhip says:

    Harry Bertrams website should be updated more with issues that concern the people of West Virginia. and on the A3P there should be lots of updates on campaign activity.

    West Virginia will soon be liberated!

  4. sonicwhip says:

    The A3P must consolidate its efforts into West Virginia and lead the people there to visit the A3P website so they may learn the truth of the Republicrats and know that Harry Bertram is there only salvation. Voters need to get a glimpse of where they are headed if Bertram is not elected.

  5. Harry Bertram says:

    Some were very Liberal so, I doubt they will be voting for me.

    Others knew me and where glad to sign and give me a chance.

  6. sonicwhip says:

    Are all those signatures collected from people who will vote for him?

    • admin says:

      Those signatures are from those who agree with the A3P and will support a candidate who represents the majority. In West Virginia, the majority population or 94%, are white Americans.

    • Christopher says:

      Of course not. That is why it is important to donate to Bertram's campaign so his message is heard. I would sign a petition for a Green party candidate member to get on the ballot, though I may not vote for that person.

      It is incumbent upon A3P members and supporters to donate as much as they can.

  7. Joe says:

    I wish he would…

  8. anon says:

    I want to vote for Bertram!

    "If elected, Bertram said he would not seek to expel non-whites from state jobs or to revive such segregation-era laws as the one banning interracial marriage."

    • JamesinUSA says:

      It is important that out party stay within realistic parameters if we are to succeed as as political force in this nation and to eventually become a force to be rechoned with.. For that reason I agree with Mr. Bertram's position on race at this time.

      • sonicwhip says:

        I think the A3P should follow these steps that is used by another political party.

        phase 1:contesting in low level political offices until we can create a power base in the local level.

        phase 2:when we have enough power at the local level, contest for public office such as congress,senate,etc.

        phase3:win enough elections in public office until we can eventually become the government.

        I think it is good to start small but if anyone in the party actually wants to run for a higher level office right now then they should.

    The West Virginia Public Broadcasting article is sickening.

    Talk about blatant bias. What kind of loon takes the SPLC seriously, anyways? We're talking about a group of people who referred to Lord of the Rings as a racist white supremacist hate film. They're a joke.
