CONSTITUTIONALISTS

A word about the term “Constitutionalist” is in order. Traditionally, and by definition in the English language, this term has been understood for centuries. A representative and accurate definition is posted online by “My Law Questions” dot com at

“A constitutionalist is often known by other names such as a constitutional conservative or a strict constructionalist. While the latter term typically refers to judges and justices, it is also used to describe any person that believes in a strict reading of the US Constitution. This person typically favors limited government, as prescribed by the Constitution, and one that is small not only in size but also in scope and in power.”

In this context, it is worth noting that attempts have been made by certain proponents of actions to evade clear Constitutional provisions. Some of these anti-Constitutional activists have tried to marginalize true Constitutionalists by warping the definition of the term to carry the connotation of right-wing conspiracy adherents who only obey laws which, in their own opinions, are based on Constitutional provisions.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Those who would oppose the rightful adherence to the Constitution, including all the Amendments, have no objective other than to circumvent the Constitution itself – usually with the goal of imposing laws and regulations which clearly have no Constitutional foundation at all.

While the MemberPAC organization recognizes that there are numerous worthy organizations in place with similar missions, it is also apparent that there is an important role to be played by this new and creative means of bringing together people who wish to discuss and confront Constitutional issues they encounter.
