United States Constitution Rant

Why?

Because too many of us United States citizens make this claim, or that claim, about how our "Constitutional rights" are being trampled, but we don't really have a clue what the actual text of the U.S. Constitution says.

Well, since you're reading this, there's no longer any excuse for not knowing for yourself exactly what the Constitution says. Read it for yourself and don't be misled by the unfounded claims often touted by popular media outlets.

The Document

Here's a PDF transcription of the United States Constitution [ page 1, page 2, page 3, page 4 ] from the National Archives and Records Administration.

Resources

The USConstitution.net web site is probably one of the most complete sources of U.S. Constitution resources I've seen. Here you can read a html version of the constitution.
