The U.S. Taxpayers Party of Michigan is the Michigan affiliate of the Constitution Party. Like its national counterpart, the U.S. Taxpayers Party of Michigan (USTPM) is a right wing party. Its website states that "The goal of the Constitution Party is to restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations and to limit the federal government to its Constitutional boundaries." This has led to the Constitution Party being described by critics as a theocratic party, as was its predecessor. The party is one of six ballot-qualified parties in Michigan. The ballot line on which it ran in its initial election in 1992 was that of the Tisch Independent Citizens' Party.
