There have been volumes upon volumes written about the US Constitution, but many of them just confuse things.
William James, a longtime student of the US Constitution, relies on James Madison, its recognized father, as well as Alexander Hamilton and John Jay to reveal the document’s true meaning in this detailed analysis.
James reveals what the Founding Fathers really intended the Constitution to do, and he also shares forgotten truths, such as:
• “Natural born” means that a child is born from parents who are both citizens of the United States.
• The Second Amendment simply recognizes two unalienable rights; one is the right of free states to organize a militia, and the other is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.
• Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal is believed by many to have prolonged and exacerbated the Great Depression. More importantly, the New Deal was unconstitutional.
James also explores how politicians consistently come up short in applying constitutional principles and how lawyers deliberately confuse people about the Constitution’s meaning.
Stop accepting what politicians say at face value, and empower yourself with the knowledge you need to stand up for your rights with The Constitution and What It Means.
