The Constitution of the United States of America

In the beginning, Colony Representatives would not agree to ‘sign on’ to the Constitution until individual CITIZENS rights were protected. They then created –
The Bill of Rights.
Our Founding Fathers created The Bill of Rights FIRST, and then came the U.S. Constitution to govern the nation. It includes our Laws of the Land and the ‘limits’ of the three levels of our government (courts/legislature/president) over mankind.
Founding Fathers Quotes
"Any people that would give up liberty for a little temporary safety deserves neither liberty nor safety." Benjamin Franklin
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." Thomas Jefferson
"The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed and that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property, and freedom of press."
- Thomas Jefferson
