This site is dedicated to Justice Clarence Thomas and his 25 years of jurisprudence on the Supreme Court of the United States. Since his confirmation on October 15, 1991, Justice Thomas has been a stalwart defender of the original meaning of the Constitution. Through thoughtful writings exploring the historical and philosophical foundations of our country, he has led the Court back to that all-important document.

As he once said, “I just think we should interpret the Constitution as it’s drafted, not as we would have drafted it.”
