Although we are constantly bombarded with arguments over constitutional issues in the media, surveys show the majority of Americans have not read and understood our Constitution even though it is just 25 pages long. The reason? The language is over 200 years old with unusual words and legal terms. This book is an easy-to-read, spin-free guide to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, additional amendments, and the Declaration of Independence. It provides both the essential historical context and important definitions of the language used at the time. One can read straight through these original texts and gain confidence in understanding the agreements which guarantee our freedoms. This book will help answer these questions: Are our rights being protected or eroded? What is the true purpose of government and what are its duties? Why was the Bill of Rights written? Individuals should read this book to protect their rights and liberty and insist their elected officials read and understand the U.S. Constitution.
