It's a goddamn shame when our "leader" refers to this as "a goddamn piece of paper".


I handed out pocket sized Constitutions on Constitution Day last year. I am a nerd.

The original pretty much sucks. Slavery, women and renters can't vote etc. Electoral college = WTF? The amendments rock though. Wonder if there will be any decent sequels.

It's really interesting to go through the Constitution and see what it actually says. For example, the issue of separation between church and state really isn't quite how it's often portrayed. The Constitution provides for the non-intervention of the government in religion, and says practically nothing about the non-intervention of religion in government -- at least, I couldn't find anything.

One thing that I really like about this edition is that it marks the sections of the Constitution and ame

Went back and read the Constitution. (Read it a lifetime ago, in high school). Started out taking notes as I went, but that got burdensome, so I just read through it. So much information - felt like I was in history class again. It is a lot to remember and keep straight. Maybe if I read it several times a year it will stick better. Made me wonder if our senators and representatives (and president) have the knowledge committed to their memories. Such a well organized, and beautifully written docu ...more

Love the constitution and the bill of rights but i think they left out some golden rules on the issues of race, taxes, and banking. Not to mention that equality is bullshit and you have no natural rights, they are earned and take work to keep and maintain.

Praise to my book group who selected the Constitution for our July read. It's been a great many years since I have read over our Constitution, and I was definitely due for re-reading. In conjunction I also read the Bill of Rights, and all of other amendments that have been made so far, and the Declaration of Independence too. All of this fit super nicely with our family's Washington DC and Philadelphia tours in July. God Bless America!

How can we ever read this book too often? It makes me marvel that these great men, our Founding Fathers, were lead by our Heavenly Father. He wrote these laws through them, which is why we should be very careful in changing any of them. We have gone too far on so many levels. Reading this again this week has made me feel there is no earthly way to get back to where we once declared our freedom, and lived accordingly.

THANK YOU James Madison, the 'Father of the US Constitution.' Madison had a vision which created our system of government. We owe a debt of gratitude for Madison's ability to open the door of opportunity for the creation of the Bill of Rights...

Mandatory reading for US citizens. In particular, article 1 section 8, and the 9th and 10th amendments which limit the power of the federal government. The federal government has gone way beyond what is permitted by the constitution.
