Many humans have puzzled why I've been conversing out on debatable concerns for the previous few years. they are saying I've by no means held political place of work. I'm no longer a constitutional student. I'm no longer even a legal professional. All i will say to that's "Guilty as charged."

In our age of political correctness it's particularly vital to protect the invoice of Rights, which promises our freedom to talk, endure fingers, perform our faith, and lots more and plenty more.
The structure isn't history—it's approximately your lifestyles in the US this day. And protecting it really is approximately what sort of kingdom our kids and grandchildren will inherit.
I wish you'll get pleasure from studying concerning the interesting ways in which the founders validated the best democracy in history—and the ways in which contemporary presidents, congresses, and courts have threatened that democracy.
As the Preamble says, the aim of the structure is to create a extra ideal union. My aim is to empower you to aid shield that union and safe the benefits of liberty.
