If You Watch One Thing on Constitution Day, It Should Be This!

What is Constitution of the United States all about?

It is about how to make laws. Really, that is it. It is rules about how laws are made and who has the power to make what laws.

Anyone that adds anything to that is selling you something. DO NOT BUY IT.

Many of you are familiar with this video. Is is just over 3 minutes in length. It is the best introduction to the United State Constitution one will ever find.

Take a look!

I love Schoolhouse Rock! I will be sharing this video with my wife’s first grade class last year.

Now this system is not perfect. Never has been and never will be. I tend to be a sharp critic of it. That said, there is value in understanding it. To start with we must work through the hype and fluff.

Happy Constitution Day!
