Bringing back an old classic...
Good idea. However, I don't think that there is anyhing in there that currently means what it says. Any time a judge gets to "interpret" the Constitution as he sees fit the document no longer has it's original meaning or force.
You may need a refresher course on how to spell "Constitution" 8-)
No law, varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of Representatives shall have intervened.
Isn't it amazing how it all fits neatly onto one webpage?
Now imagine reading the neverending Euro constitution...I don't think my connection could handle the bandwidth.
But BTTT, anyway. :)
"...has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance"
That's funny. I didn't see a footnote that said you can toss the whole thing out to catch a "terrorist" or a drug user. But most people around here seem to think it's there.
Actually, I think it was 1787. :-)
Good post, though.
Goody. Constitution links!
That one has hyperlinks to the amendments included in the affected text for changes made to the Constitution.
Thanks to AntiGuv for that.
Refresher course? I believe more than a few 'conservatives' need to read it for the first time instead of getting their talking points from the RNC
I carry a copy of the US Constitution with every single day. It is the greatest piece ever written. Now we should all get together and demand that CONgress look at the sixteenth, and seventeenth amendments. The 16th destroyed us as people, and the 17th destroyed us as states. Thomas Jefferson warned us what a Central Bank would do for this country, and he was 100% correct.
I found my Bicentennial Keepsake Edition with introduction by President Ronald Reagan. The Bible and The Constitution are my reading materials of choice.
This is pure vanity on the part of TheOtherOne. The US Constitution is available on about 10,000 sites on the Internet.
Done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America the Twelfth In Witness whereof We have hereunto subscribed our Names,...
Seperation of state and church, yeah right...
All subject to the interpretation of lawyers and armchair constitutionwonks.
The dim's keep telling us that this is a living document & needs to keep changing, but IMHO it is the bedrock of our society. An UNchanging, UNmoving foundation. We know what happens when a foundation moves, the structure above it falls down. I refuse to let this happen!
