At this time a new Political Party is being formed, The Constitution Party of the United States of America.

Hardly new, it's been around for 20 years in various forms.

The Constitution Party is a conservative political party in the United States. It was founded as the U.S. Taxpayers' Party by Howard Philips in 1992. The party's official name was changed to The Constitution Party in 1999. The party's platform defines itself as predicated on the principles of the nation's founding documents. The party currently 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, originally founded for George Wallace's 1968 presidential campaign. The American Independent Party of California has been an affiliate of the Constitution Party since its founding; however, current party leadership is disputed and the issue is in court to resolve this conflict. The Constitution Party has some substantial support from the Christian Right and in 2010 achieved major party status in Colorado.

Yes, so much for it being a grassroots organization. Big money is driving it,
