The U.S. Constitution is one of the most influential legal documents in existence. Since its creation some two hundred years ago, over one hundred countries around the world have used it as a model for their own.
And it is a living document. It is one of the world’s oldest surviving constitutions. And, while the Supreme Court continually interprets the Constitution so as to reflect a rapidly changing world, its basic tenets have remained virtually unchanged since its inception, and unchallenged as well. People quarrel over its interpretation but never do they question the wisdom of its underlying principles. Imagine creating a document that governs your grandchildren’s grandchildren’s grandchildren! That’s what the men of the 1787 Constitutional Convention did.
For this very reason, great people have spent their lives studying and interpreting the Constitution. At ConstitutionFacts.com, you’ll begin to see why. You’ll get a feel for the Constitution itself and how it is that a document that was written over 200 years ago still plays an integral role in our everyday lives. You’ll see the entire text of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence – and much more! You’ll find interesting insights into the men who wrote the Constitution, how it was created, and how the Supreme Court has interpreted the Constitution in the two centuries since its creation!
