    Extremely antiuated and obfuscated Predictable ending and almost always misinterpreted I'm hoping the 2nd edition is revised to make it relevant and useful to the people it was supposedly written for

    The fundamental governing document of the United StatesThis review is of the free Kindle edition as described belowPublication Date March 24 2011File Size 93 KBWord Wise EnabledPrint Length 50 pagesEnhanced Typesetting EnabledLending EnabledText to Speech Not enabledSimultaneous Device Usage UnlimitedX Ray EnabledScreenReader SupportedLanguage EnglishASIN B004TPCWCThis free edition does not contain the Bill of Rights or any of the other amendments Otherwise it is an easy to read copy of the fundamental governing document and law of the United States the bedrock the foundation upon which the nation stands Shake that foundation and the whole structure trembles Shatter it and the nation falls to be replaced by something else something lesserThe Constitution was written for the people not lawyers However understanding is aided by some basic knowledge of history Not just American history but that of Western Civilization in generalI don't think that most people understand that the Constitution is a basic issue in the upcoming elections Does the Constitution mean what it says or does the meaning fluctuate with the changing social and political views of a simple majority?

    Will an American lose his citizenship if he one stars this book?

    It might seem odd that an Australian would list this—and if you look at the shelves I have it on Americans may perceive one apparent inconsistency Folks if you see 'odd' or 'inconsistent' you don't know the full storyBecause Britain had and has no written constitution the Australian constitutional conventions needed to look closely at other examples and high on their list was the US ConstitutionTo be blunt Australia's founding fathers no women were allowed in followed the US Constitution down an alley mugged it took its pocket contents its hat and its shoes turned them inside out and claimed them as their ownIn some cases they went the other way as in the assignment of residual powers but they drew on the experiences of the US in making their decisionsThe Australians were also canny about specifying the taking of censuses knowing that the US census system was faltering under the huge population growth of the 1890s not knowing that Herman Hollerith had invented the device that used to be a Hollerith card but is now referred to as the IBM card and that made for faster processingSo just as our nation's founding fathers gleaned ideas we can garner interest from it — if we know how to read itNot bad thinking and writing in it either

    Somehow I don't look at this as a book it's of a document But I do wish every American would read it Get through the construction parts see what's been changed over the life of our country by reading the amendments the shameful attempt to allow slavery the repudiation of slavery the change from senators being selected by the house to being elected directly etc etc Read understand and treasure the rights guaranteed to every American in the Bill of Rightsnote that The Bill of RIGHTS Then realize they apply to all AmericansLearn and treasure what it is to be an American
