Presidents Essay

The Constitution Party, also known as the US Taxpayers Party, is a conservative political party in the United States that asserts that the US is a Christian nation founded on the Bible and that US jurisprudence should be restored to what the party claims is its "Biblical foundations". The Constitution Party advocates a platform which reflects the Party's understanding of the principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, the Bible, and the Bill of Rights. The party was founded as the "U.S. Taxpayers' Party" by Howard Philips in 1991, Phillips was the party's candidate in the 1992, 1996 and 2000 presidential elections. The party's official name was changed to The Constitution Party in 1999. The preamble of the ...view middle of the document...

The Constitution Party supports reducing the role of the United States federal government through cutting bureaucratic regulation, reducing spending, and replacing the income tax with a tariff-based revenue system supplemented by excise taxes. The party opposes euthanasia and abortion, the latter including in cases of rape and incest. The party supports the ability of states to administer a death penalty. The party opposes same-sex marriage, and believes state and local governments have the right to criminalize "offensive sexual behavior". The party further opposes pornography, believing it to be, at worst, "a destructive element of society resulting in significant and real emotional, physical, spiritual and financial costs to individuals, families and communities," distinguishable from the US citizen's "cherished First Amendment right to free speech." While expressing its belief in the individual responsibility of citizens and corporations, the party maintains that government plays a "vital role" in establishing and maintaining the highest level of decency in America's community standards. The Constitution party opposes all government sponsorship, involvement in, or promotion of gambling, and in keeping with the spirit of Article 1 Section 8 and Amendment 10, opposing federal anti-drug laws while maintaining that the federal government may have a role in limiting the import of drugs. I believe whether or not an individual favor this party over the Democratic or Republican Party depends on what they personally believe in. Being that the Constitution Party takes mostly all of their beliefs exactly from the Bible, there would be more religious individuals that would favor this party over the other two major Parties.
