Description

Thomas Jefferson and his companion founding fathers would be appalled at how Americans misuse the Bill of Rights. Despite popular belief, the right to free health care, free child care, a free college education, and a $50,000 a year income are not the God-given inalienable rights the Constitution outlines. Quite the contrary - we all have the same basic human rights regardless of what our morals and ethics are. These are the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
How have we strayed so far from the principles this country was founded upon? In straightforward, easy to read text, The Bill of Rights outlines the 27 amendments to the Constitution, what they are, what they mean to most people today, and how they have been misused.
You decide for yourself. Lay aside political belief systems, special interest groups, and political parties. How will you exercise our founding fathers' vision of freedom in life in the 21st century?
