A strict constructionist interprets the Constitution according to the language and original intent of the text at the time of its writing, in much the same way as a fundamentalist views the Bible.

Naturally, they use this power only for good - America (The Book)
With all the "W" and Kerry bashing going on, I felt it necessary to point out one thing. The beauty of our constitution and system is that no matter what happens, we survive and in the end get it right.
