The Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution are two of the most important documents in American History, both conveying the principles on which the country was founded. Providing the framework and ideals that still guide American Politics today, these writings should be mandatory reading for every American. In a list of grievances against the King of England, the Declaration of Independence professes that all men are created equal and possess certain “unalienable rights” through natural law that no one should be denied. Over a decade after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the Second Continental Congress recognized the need for a more robust and centralized framework for governing the newly formed United States. The United States Constitution went above a beyond the Articles of Confederation to more clearly define the roles and responsibilities of the Federal Government with the Bill of Rights defining individual liberties. The principles set forth here safeguard the sovereignty of American citizens by establishing civil liberties and placing certain restrictions on government influence. Nearly two and a half decades after its signing, the United States Constitution, with its Bill of Rights, is still revered as the Supreme Law of the Land.

    Reread for the first time since High School Government class (25 years). It is a great reminder of what The People's rights are and as it says in the 10th Amendment, "The powers NOT delegated (specifically) to the United States by the Constitution (such as creating Czars over industry or bailing out banks), nor prohibited by it to the states, ARE RESERVED TO THE STATES RESPECTIVELY OR TO THE PEOPLE." The Constitution is NOT out of date, those who claim it is (Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton et al [ Reread for the first time since High School Government class (25 years).

The Constitution is NOT out of date, those who claim it is (Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton et al [both of whom have sworn before God, angels and millions of witnesses to uphold it:]) want to destroy the power of the People and give more to themselves because they think the People can't govern themselves and because they are greedy and want to create a "Big Brother" state in order to track/punish those who disagree with them. Just my opinion though. I believe I still have the freedom of speech granted in the 1st Amendment.

    Great little reference book. Everyone should have a copy and read it often. Everyone could then be reminded that the freedoms we have had to be taken back at gun point and written down so no one would forget or misinterpret that we can say what we want, pray what we want, and own any kind of damn gun we want! Too bad more people don't fight for these freedoms today. Soon enough we may find ourselves in a place where we again have to take our natural freedoms back from the idiots we elected to pr Great little reference book.

    Beautiful writing from Thomas Jefferson, as usual. I am studying Lockeian ideas of innate human rights and how they may clash or combine with shamanic belief systems around the world as the 21st century begins to see a revitalization of these ancient cultures, most notably Finnish, Norse, and Egyptian; this is a good compendium of Locke's ideas processed through the sensibilities of Thomas Jefferson.

    Illuminating and fascinating I hadn't read these documents in many years, and am glad I took the time to read them again. It is my objective to be a more informed and conscientious citizen, and studying our Constitution is the foundation of that pursuit.

    It is a classic that is still subject to modern day interp. It means something different to everyone. It comes in handy from time to time, but sometimes it just doesn't do enough. This is an American classic. When it was written it was revolutionary! It was and remains to be a controversial text.

    Simply put: this should be required reading for every American. While they're supposedly covered in school, surveys show that most Americans are appallingly ignorant of the content and intent of these documents. There's no excuse.

    The founders of our nation did an incredible job and I suspect the naysayers were just as prevalent as they are today. Check out my audio at itunes,amazon, napster "Those Self Evident Truths."

    This goes hand in hand with The Federalist Papers.
