    Sorry but please explain to a poor confused Australian what a "consitutionalist" is? It is not a political affiliation I am famiiar with.

    well,

    its a strict interpertation of the constitution and its amendmants. it is not a party affliation. its a more of an ideological viewpoint on the reltionship between an american and the federal government and between the state and federal government. a more familiar term would be 'libertarian' but that is a fractured party without a central set of principles that encompasses a broad range of views, some of which contradict each other.

    hope this helps a little
