Yes, I know it’s weird.
I re-read The Constitution about once or twice a year.
When I was testing printers for a living, I often Printed The Constitution as a test case. It was my way of making sure that people who might otherwise have never read the document had an opportunity to.
It’s surprising how many people haven’t read it, and equally surprising how many people came to my cubicle asking for me to print copies for them.
We should remember that The Constitution is a document that defines our government AND its limits.
You don’t have to be a constitutional scholar to read The Constitution. It is a remarkably straight forward document to build a nation on. I’ve alway believed that the directness of the language was intentional, and the document was to be comprehensible to the general public.
I once had a grand time citing Amendment VII as my reason for refusing to enter into binding arbitration. I was probably citing and using the Amendment incorrectly. Nonetheless, I did get out of the HR department of a company I worked for, without losing my right to have legal representation and trial by jury if it became necessary.
Allow me to introduce you to my friend,
