According to wikipedia, “The Constitution Party is a right-wing nationalist political party in the United States.

The party believes that the United States is a Christian nation founded on the basis of the Bible and that jurisprudence should be restored to what the party claims is its “Biblical foundations”. It has been described by its critics as a theocratic party, as with its predecessor, the U.S. Taxpayers Party. 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 Phillips in 1991.[16] Phillips was also the party’s candidate in the 1992, 1996 and 2000 presidential elections. The party’s name was changed to the Constitution Party in 1999; however, some state affiliate parties are known under different names. The party’s platform is predicated on the party’s understanding of the original intent of the nation’s founding documents. The party absorbed the American Independent Party, which was founded for George Wallace’s 1968 presidential campaign. The Constitution Party receives substantial support from Christian Right organizations and claims to be the “philosophical home” of the Tea Party.The Constitution Party candidate, former congressman Tom Tancredo, came in second place in the 2010 Colorado gubernatorial election with 36.43% of the vote, ahead of Republican Dan Maes with 11.13%. In 2006, Rick Jore, of the then recently disaffiliated Constitution Party of Montana, was elected to the Montana House of Representatives with 56.2% of the vote, defeating Democrat Jeanne Windham”.
