    Below is his biography 

    Patrick Anthony Ockander was born in Panorama City, California and raised in Calabasas, California by married Christian parents.

    Father was a Firefighter for Los Angeles City, and his Mother was a Registered Nurse.

    Patrick resided in California for 27 years. During his life in California, Patrick accumulated a wealth of knowledge and work experience.

    Patrick has a diverse work history ranging from making topiaries, working fast food, waiting tables, general construction, sewing, sales, sales support, clerical business support, telecommunications with Time Warner as a Cable Installer, Service Technician, and sales person.

    He worked on his education, off and on while living in California, mainly through Pierce College.

    Patrick remodeled his first home and turned a profit on that condominium in Agoura hills.

    In 2003, he moved to North Idaho (Coeur D’ Alene) where he continued his education at Spokane Falls Community College and began to see the differences in freedom between a liberal community and a conservative one.

    Patrick was motivated to serve The United States of America, as a Medic, to fight our enemies in the War on Terror.

    He joined the Army, became a Combat Medic, and was assigned to Fort Lewis, Washington, where he Served with the Stryker Brigade, 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry division (1-23) I Corps, aka “Tomahawks”.

    While serving with this unit Patrick and his comrades deployed to Baghdad Iraq and performed daily combat missions, mostly ranging from regular mounted and dismounted patrols, hundreds, if not thousands of searches of people, property, houses, businesses, and vehicles.

    Patrick witnessed and interacted with hundreds of soft interrogations, and worked closely with assigned interpreters where he gained extremely valuable insight into the mentality and truthfulness of the situation, and the people.

    He served for 4 years, active duty and attained the rank of Specialist (E-4), and then enlisted in the Army Reserves for 6 years, became a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) through education and hands on training at Fort Sam Houston, and Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

    Patrick was assigned to a Combat Support Hospital at Fort Sam Houston, and attained the rank of Staff Sergeant (E-6).

    Through Patrick’s service he has received a veterans disability rating, and has been thankful for the support the Veterans Association has provided him…though through the experience navigating this system he has gained invaluable experience and understanding of its strengths and shortfalls.

    Patrick moved to San Antonio, Texas in 2008, and has been residing there ever since.

    While serving within the Reserves Patrick was employed as a Nurse and performed within the Hospice (Palliative care) field.

    Patrick cared for hundreds of patients over the course of approximately 4 years.

    He cared for many dying individuals, and served each one with compassion and love.

    Patrick supported the families of these individuals, serving both in their homes and in the nursing home environments.

    During this time, Patrick continued his education and ultimately received his degree in Nursing, a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing at the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio School of Nursing (UTHSCSASON).

    Patrick recently passed the National Board Exam, and is awaiting his official acceptance as a Registered Nurse.

    Patrick has been an avid Patriot, watching closely from the sidelines, gaining insight, studying the path of Our Nation, and has felt he could no longer sit idly by, watching the systematic destruction of Our Country.

    Patrick is a God Loving, God Fearing Christian, with a deep love and concern for his fellow Brothers and Sisters in this World.

    He has decided to give everything to help shed light on the situation, awaken everyone he can, and take a SERIOUS STAND to Change the course we are on, and to identify, expose, and remove the many Oath-Breakers We now have leading our Nation.

    Patrick is known as a jack-of-all-trades, and has been blessed with the Talent of problem identification, and Problem solving.

    He has put together a plan, a Vision, for America, that he believes if We read it, it is a plan We, The People can get behind…and Unite behind…as We work together to restore Our U.S. Constitution.

    Patrick feels he is a Native American, as his Great Grandmothers were both Native American, from the Algonquin and Cheyenne tribes.

    From the genealogical history his family has uncovered he has determined his Anglo-Saxon side of the family came mainly from Sweden, and England.

    His ancestors that came from outside the country all came through Ellis Island, legally.

    Patrick has always had the heart of a Native American, and has deep-set feelings about Freedom, and the ability to enjoy this Land of Liberty, and feels that all people need to be released from the enslavement of heavy taxation, fines, fees, and bureaucracy, among other things.

    Patrick Anthony Ockander is a Die Hard Patriot…to the core…and is willing to go through the gauntlet of public scrutiny and judgment…for the Sake of Our Freedom.

    Patrick Anthony Ockander wants to Unite the People of America in Love and Harmony…and has a Vision for Our Future that he believes, once you find out about, you’re going to want to help bring to fruition.

The Times ... They Are A-Changin'

        We have been witness to the turning of the tide in the political landscape in the wake of the 2010 election cycle results. The Constitution Party of Maryland, in its first ever election season to run a record 10 candidates for partisian public offices across the Maryland, spurred discussion and forced candidates to answer the tough questions many just wished to avoid. 
        We have now had to face a stark reality - the loss of our party's ballot access status in the State of Maryland. The Constitution Party, like the other four recognized state political parties, was required by Maryand Election Law to have garnered one percent of the total registered voters in the State affiliated with the party (34,935 required voter registrants), or our gubernatorial ticket of Knowles/Hargadon would have need to obtain one percent of the total votes cast in that race (18,579 required votes) in order to retain that status. We, like the other two non-principle parties, were unsuccessful in meeting either of the statutory thresholds.  
        There is one other method of obtaining this recognized state political party status - the petition. This method is required of all new parties to submit 10,000 valid petition signatures to gain recognized status. The administration of the State Board of Elections allows a provisional period for those parties that have been unsuccessful in retaining their ballot access to submit a petition before it decertifies the party and notifies its registrants of the loss with an option to chose another affiliation or become unaffiliated.
For this cycle, that administrative deadline was March 7, 2011.
        The Constitution Party of Maryland made an aggressive effort to obtain those 10,000 petition signatures, but in the end fell significantly short. Therefore, for now, the Constitution Party of Maryland will cease to be a state political party and will not be able to field candidates for partisian elections.
        For now, is the the operative term: we do not intend for this to be the end. Which is why the outgoing chairman, Michael Dawson, and those who have served honorably as the State Central Committee, have given us the structure of a provisional organization to primarily work toward again obtaining ballot access with petition drives, and strategic planning, as well as carrying on the efforts of the Constitution Party. You can read more about this in the amended Constitution page of this site.
        Effective March 30, 2011, our "Article VI" provisional organization will commence the next phase of the organization. 'Marylanders for Constitutional Governance: An Association of the Constitution Party of Maryland' (MdCG) will be the name of this provisional organization and it will take the lead in the petitioning efforts across the State.  As the current operating State Central Committee is dissolved under the provisions of Article VI, a new Board of Directors leadership will emerge as the governing body. 
        As lovers of liberty, we encourage you to join with this group, regardless of your political affiliation, to help move forward the a Restoration of the Republic!

Marylanders for

Constitutional Governance

A Message from our Former Party Chairman

Why the Constitution Party: What we stand for...

        The Constitution Party of Maryland is focused on attracting, equiping and delivering candidates to you, the voters in the State of Maryland. Candidates who have proven to be Constitutionalists and who will declare their oath of officeto be the defining factor of their service in office.
        Assuredly, we are not a protest group. Petitioning the government for a redress of grievences has its time and place, but now is not the time nor the place. Protests, in and of themselves, are little more than fighting over the scraps left at the table by those who feast heartily on our dime. As the Constitution Party, we are here to take our rightful place at the table of Maryland governance. 
        We offer a place of refuge to those who value the principles on which this great nation was founded. A place to nurture and develop a voter group that can and will outnumber the principal political parties in Maryland politics. We are NOT a third-party, we are a viable challenger to the way you always thought it had to be. 
        We have watched those with whom we entrusted our conservative principles betray us. Those who promised to vote less government and lower taxes have, once in office, chosen the path of least resistance. They decided it was best to follow a policy of “go along to get along.” And, once challenged, we have watched them fold time and time again. We have listened to their mush-mouthed speeches that not only failed to inspire the base, but have given energy and momentum to the misguided progressives. 
        The words of Thomas Jefferson and the wise, principled men who attached their names, and thereby their lives, fortunes and sacred honor, to the Declaration of Independence, ring as true today as they did 235 years ago.     
        Jefferson speaks of unalienable rights given to man by God. Government cannot grant, alter, nor take away these rights. Its sole purpose is to protect these rights for everyone. The rights to Life, to be free from intrusion, and of self-determination are integral to the human condition. They are not exclusive to the eighteenth century Age of Enlightenment, the original thirteen colonies or the geopolitical boundaries of the United States of America -- they are universal truths. The difference is our Constitution establishes provisions to protect these God-given rights.         
        These things being said, it is, just as our founders proclaimed, the duty of government to secure these rights to the people. Unfortunately, our government has fallen into the same power-grab and corrupted authority as that of the King George III in the years leading up to the Revolution. 
        But don't be mistaken, this isn't all about finger-pointing. It’s not all their fault – we have been complicit in their tyrannical approach. We have been greedy and allowed them to buy our silence in exchange for our comfort. Nineteenth century French political philosopher and observer of the American political system, Alexis de Tocqueville, wrote in his 1833 publication Democracy in America, “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.” 
        We have become likened to slaves to the government, through exorbitant taxes, through over-reaching and over-arching laws and regulations. But the reality is that we are only as enslaved as we allow others to enslave us. The time is now that we stand up and boldly declare that the principles on which our nation was founded are just as true as they were in Philadelphia during the summer of 1776.
