I keep these bookmarks handy:

Constitution.
Bill of Rights.
Declaration of Independence.
Common Sense (Thomas Paine).

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.

Missed a spot:

27th Amendment

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.

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!

http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/constitution.overview.html

That one has hyperlinks to the amendments included in the affected text for changes made to the Constitution.

Thanks to AntiGuv for that.

Now what's this document again? Republicans nor Democrats have the time to read this. Have a nation of states to run don't you know...

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.

Thank you for posting The Constitution of The United States again. We ALL need a refresher.

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.

You forgot this important part of it...

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...

Sect. 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

Looks like John Kerry, and a few others could be tossed out on their ears. Too bad our Congress does not really work on behalf of "We the People".

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!
