The Constitution Society is a private non-profit organization
founded in 1994 and dedicated to research and public education on
the principles of constitutional republican government. It
publishes documentation, engages in litigation, and organizes
local citizens groups to work for reform. Click on the links
provided to find more.
This site aims to eventually provide almost everything
one needs to accurately decide what is and is not constitutional
in most situations, and what applicable constitutions require one
to do. It is for constitutional exegesis and decision support.
This organization was founded in response to the growing
concern that noncompliance with the Constitution for the United
States of America and most state constitutions is creating a
crisis of legitimacy that threatens freedom and civil rights.
Although the focus here is on government in the United States,
coverage also includes the rest of the world, and private as well
as public organizations.
We maintain that the principles of constitutional
republicanism and constitutional design are universal, and
applicable to all nations, although not well understood or upheld
We also examine the related principles of federalism and
nomocracy, the rule of law, of nomology, the science of law, and
show how those principles are applicable to solving the
fundamental problem of avoiding excessive or unbalanced
concentrations of power.

There's plenty of money for violating the Constitution, precious
little for defending it.
When people are donating to the Constitution Society
and similar organizations in large numbers and amounts, then
perhaps we can start blaming someone else. As long as they hold
on to their money they have only themselves to blame.
We apologize for cluttering our site with ads. We
resisted doing so for a long time, but donations were just not
