The Tea Party movement and its constitutional vision for the United States is a hot topic of public law today. The rising tide of popular support for the Tea Party movement has transformed what was once cast aside as a fleeting faction into a formidable force in American politics—one that could augur significant consequences for the contours of American constitutional law in the years ahead. This panel will explore the constitutional politics of the Tea Party movement, with particular consideration given to the history, membership, rhetoric, ambitions, as well as the merits and limits of the Tea Party movement.
