Championing the Constitution is NOT a worldview to unite the Republican Party, or anything else. It is not a worldview at all. The Constitution is based on a worldview that includes, among other things, the realization that people, and governments, will inherently work to advance their own self-interest. The genius of the Founding Fathers was their understanding that with proper incentives it is possible to build a successful society on the foundation of self-interest. Modern liberalism is based on a worldview that includes, among other things, the foolish notion that people are altruistically motivated to work for the common good. They are wrong.
