In 1992, a number of independent state parties united to form the U.S. Taxpayers Party. In 1999, at its national nominating convention for the 2000 elections, convention delegates chose to change the party name to the “Constitution Party,” to better reflect the party’s core belief in the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, as well as their commitment to re-establishing the Supreme Law of the Land as embodied in the Constitution.
The Constitution Party is the only national party who is 100% Pro-Life. Life is the first right affirmed and protected by the Constitution. It is protected by the 5th and 14th Amendments. Exceptions in the cases stated by those whom allow for them only serve to create and punish another innocent victim, the unborn child.

Most state parties changed their names to “Constitution Party,” after the coalition of state parties that formed the U.S. Taxpayer Party became the Constitution Party in 1999. A handful of states were unable to change their state-registered names because of individual state restrictions, others just prefer a particular name.
In recent elections, millions of conservatives did not vote because neither of the major party candidates represented them. The number of voters not aligned with either the Republican or Democratic parties has grown every year. Currently, more and more principled voters simply will not cast a vote for the “lesser of two evils.” Also, strong alternative parties have historically influenced electoral outcomes by drawing crucial votes from Republican and Democratic candidates. In addition, issues such as the abolition of slavery, women’s suffrage and a balanced federal budget were introduced by alternative parties.
Your vote is truly wasted when you do not use it to express your actual beliefs. How can we expect to have principled leaders if we do not have a principled electorate? Voting for the Constitution Party is a personal statement about who you are as a voter, your vision for America, and your faith.
A vote for the Constitution Party is a vote for the Constitution and a vote against current government policies. It is a real investment in America’s restoration.

According to Webster’s 1828 dictionary, a constitutionist is, “one who adheres to the constitution of the country,” ‘constitution’ meaning the document which founded the country. The same dictionary defines the word constitutionalist as “an adherent to the constitution of government,” the word ‘constitution’ referring to how the government is structured and functions, rather than to a specific document.
The current government functioning in Washington D.C. is not constituted in the same manner as outlined in the U.S. Constitution, which founded the country. It is a bloated bureaucracy, continually acting in defiance of the Constitution at every turn. It is controlled by a two-party system not authorized in the Constitution, which enacts unconstitutional legislation, and usurps authority where none is given, no matter which party is in charge. The Constitution Party cannot support this Liberty-destroying system, which falsely describes itself as operating under the Constitution, or “constitutional”. In this sense, we are not constitutionalists.
A Constitutionist, on the other hand, believes in the principles of the original Constitution, and is firmly committed to keeping those principles intact, from all enemies – foreign and domestic. We believe that by returning to the limited federal government, as authorized in the Constitution, we will see Liberty and Prosperity return to the nation. In order to separate ourselves from those who wish to keep the current government functioning outside the Constitution, we call ourselves Constitutionists and call for a complete re-establishment of the American Republic according to the original intent of the Framers.
