A Constitution Minute
American colonists fought, sacrificed and died to establish and preserve the freedom guaranteed to us by the Constitution of the United States of America.
The U.S. Constitution is the oldest Constitution still in active use in the world today and is the basic document of our Republic, which protects the individual liberties of all citizens through written law.
Our Constitution, the cornerstone of our freedom, was written to protect every American from the abuse of power by government.
The first ten Amendments known as the ‘Bill of Rights’ went into effect December 15, 1791.
Know your Constitution, know your rights and know what it says and does not say.
