Transcript of the Constitution of the United States - Official Text

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

For those who have never read the Constitution -- and for we who may need a refresher (it being a long time since school days), here is a link to a transcript of the Constitution by which ALL Americans are all sworn to abide.

 

Regardless of party. Regardless of whether or not we like the President. We are a nation of laws, not extortion. 

 

We are all supposed to care about this country. We can disagree, but holding the government to get your way is wrong. Unethical, immoral and unpatriotic. Maybe worse.

This is the actual text of the constitution. It represents what the laws of our country are based on. Currently it has been around longer than any other constitution in history.  It was created by the founding fathers. They did such a great job hundreds of years ago that other countries now a days base their constitutions on it.  That is very impressive since at the time no other government in the world was like the one that the founding fathers created.

This new website provides a tool that will allow students compare constitutions from various countries and find similarities and differences. You will also find tags, over 300 of them, so you may choose to search by a specific tag such as "right to privacy" (found in 156 constitutions) or "right to bear arms" (found in 5 constitutions).

This site may be a great resource for history and social studies as courses in government.
