Phillips founded the U.S. Taxpayers Party in 1992 to offer an inspired alternative to a two-party system in which both parties seem bent on expanding the federal government. The Taxpayers Party committed itself to restoring the federal government to its delegated, enumerated functions and returning American jurisprudence to its original "common law" Biblical foundations. Phillips was nominated in 1992 and 1996 to be the Taxpayers Party candidate for U.S. president, and in 1999 was chosen to be the 2000 presidential nominee of his party, which was renamed the Constitution Party.

Phillips headed two federal agencies during the Nixon administration, but resigned as director of the U.S. Office of Economic Opportunity in the Executive Office of the President when President Nixon reneged on his commitment to veto further funding for "Great Society" programs.
Since 1974, Phillips has been chairman of The Conservative Caucus, a non-partisan, nationwide grass-roots public policy advocacy group that provided leadership in opposition to the Panama Canal and Carter-Brezhnev SALT II treaties during the 1970s.
