Former 2016 Constitution Party Presidential Candidate



Counselor and founder of the Alaska Constitution Party

J. R. Myers
Born: unknown
J.R. Myers was born and raised in Great Falls, Montana, but his family dating back to his grandfather has ties to, and he now lives in, the state of Alaska, which he considers his home. He holds a B.S. in Liberal Arts, Cum Laude, from the University of Great Falls, as well as Master of Human Services and Master of Professional Counseling degrees from the same school. He has been active in politics throughout his life, including as a founding member of the Alaska NAACP and serving various functions in that state's Republican party, but he has never held public office.

Myers is founder and current Chair of the Alaska Constitution Party, which is formally affiliated with the national Constitution party. He seeks the national party's nomination for the presidential election, and simultaneously, the nomination of the American Independent Party of California.

Myers declares his support for the Alaska Constitution Party's platform, which it can be reasonably imagined that he, as founder, helped to draft. In service to these principles, he is a generally conservative man, opposing abortion, advocating gun possession and concealed carrying rights, and emphasizing the importance of freedom from government interference in private citizens' lives. He believes in the rights of parents to make educational decisions for their children, rather than allotting that authority to representatives. He reaffirms the Constitution Party's principle that marriage is “divinely instituted” between one man and one woman, with their children.

Also in line with Constitution's conservative ideals, Myers believes in the primacy of states' rights, and quotes the federal constitution's tenth amendment, which provides that any and all powers not specifically delegated by the constitution to the federal government remains in the hands of the states, and of the people. Additionally, he is a spiritual man, to the extent that he forgoes spelling the word “God” without a “-” (dash) in place of the letter O.

Myers' conservative principles make him a good fit for many right-wing voters across the nation, including within his generally Republican state of Alaska. By contrast, there is little to endear him to the political left.
