American Political Party
The Constitution Party was founded as the U.S. Taxpayers' Party in 1992, and was re-named the Constitution Party in 1999. The party's stated goal is "to restore our government to its Constitutional limits and our law to its Biblical foundations." The party advocates a platform which it says aims to reflect the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, the Bible, and the Bill of Rights. The party puts a large focus on immigration, calling for stricter penalties towards illegal immigrants and a moratorium on legal immigration until all federal subsidies to immigrants are discontinued.
The party absorbed the American Independent Party, which was originally founded for George Wallace's 1968
Presidential campaign, but the American Independent Party of California has maintained its status as only
an affiliate of the Constitution Party.
