Message From the Chairman

Howard Phillips Legacy Society

Howard Phillips Legacy Society

10 March 2014 –

by James N. Clymer – National Committee member, former National Chairman, and 2012 Vice-presidential candidate –

HowardPhillps_quote When Governor George Wallace was the nominee of the American Independent Party — a forerunner of the Constitution Party — his slogan was “It Takes Courage: Stand Up for America.”  It took courage then, and perhaps more so today, to be a Constitutionalist.Powerful and moneyed elites run Republican and Democratic parties. As a supporter of the Constitution Party, you are standing up against the establishment — offering principled, practical, and inspiring alternatives to politics-as-usual. I like to put it this way: ours is the only political party that lives up to its name.

The Constitution Party has been blessed in the past year or so with a dramatic upswing of visits to our Facebook page, more readers of party newsletter than ever before, and by a number of Constitutionalists who are already putting their name up as candidates.

That’s due to your financial investments, as well as a few key friends who have been giving on a regular basis, either monthly or quarterly. That’s why I’m writing to you.  

With the enthusiastic support of his widow, we are re-naming
our pledge program The Howard Phillips Legacy Society.

I had the privilege of working with Howard right from the start. I believe his vision of building an alternative party based on the Founding Father’s timeless principles is crucial to public policy.  The Howard Phillips Legacy Society honors his courage and leadership. Regular gifts are the lifeblood of our victory fund — as a “business,” our party needs to count on a certain amount of fixed income.

I’d appreciate it if you would join. Note that only members of The Howard Phillips Legacy Society receive our exclusive VICTORY REPORT. You may link to the first issue here.

.999 fine silver ingot


Other premiums of appreciation include a one gram 999.9 pure silver ingot especially created for the Constitution Party. One key part of our platform is to re-establish an honest monetary system backed by gold and silver. Article 1, Section 10 of the U.S. Constitution prohibits states from using anything other than a gold and silver based currency. The silver ingot will be a unique valuable reminder of your continuing role in our work on this issue.

The 5000 Year Leap


Members also have the opportunity to receive several other premiums including the book, The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle That Changed the World by W. Cleon Skousen. The New York Times calls Skousen “the constitutional guru of the Tea Party movement.”


An investment of $12, $20, or even $30 a month or a quarter will go a long way toward preserving our freedoms via a vibrant, determined, and more influential Constitution Party.

The Howard Phillips Legacy Society was established with the admonishment of John Adams in mind:

“There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.”

The Howard Phillips Legacy Society provides funding to empower Howard’s ideas and ideals. It is designed for patriots who have a commitment to the platform, candidates, and courageous political path we are taking. I’d appreciate you joining us in this endeavor.



Jim Clymer,
former National Chairman

P.S. Your membership in The Howard Phillips Legacy Society is vital as we continue to grow our party. A regular pledge of $50, $20, or just $12 honors the bold but necessary steps of faith Howard Phillips took when he founded the Constitution Party.
