Get it in writing. The Federalist Society was founded to promote respect for the rule of law as set forth in the written Constitution. The ACS should consider identifying a foundational document for its own reference. As they already have the word "Constitution" in their name, they could pick whichever constitution they find most compatible with their legal theories. Since many liberal legal scholars are proud experts on foreign law, the ACS should have plenty of options.
