( – Actor Jon Voight said on Friday that the country needs to turn back to the Constitution and “our founding principles.” asked Voight at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., what he hoped voters gained by attending the event aimed at getting out the evangelical vote in the 2016 presidential election. “What do you hope that voters gain from being here? What do you hope the takeaway is?”

“Well, I think the No. 1 takeaway is it’s a very key time in our country’s history,” Voight said. “We’re in a little bit of a spot now.

“I say a little bit of a spot – you know we’re being attacked from all sides and internally as well,” he said. “So we really have to bring us back to the Constitution and our founding principles.

“We have a lot of work to do,” Voight said. “So it’s very good that this gathering comes forth at this time so we can inspire each other and educate each other and get out the vote.

“This is an important election,” he said.
