Some people – including the former law instructor who now serves as President of the United States – believe that it is impossible to reconstruct the Constitution’s original meaning. As this book demonstrates, that view is substantially incorrect.
The Original Constitution fills a void that has existed for a long time—the need for a clear, complete, easy-to-read guide to what our Constitution really means.
Using evidence overlooked by nearly all other writers and assessing it with scrupulous objectivity, The Original Constitution tells you the truth about the Constitution. The Constitution the Founders gave us, that is, instead of the distorted version of it foisted upon us today.
In The Original Constitution you will learn:
–What the Founders empowered Congress to do—and the limits they imposed.
–Why modern “free speech” law is largely wrong.
–What the Constitution’s ban on “establishment of religion” really means. The facts may surprise you.
–How politicians and activist judges pulled American government away from its constitutional roots.
–What the Constitution really means when it uses terms like “impeachment,” “commerce,” “necessary and proper,” and “natural born.”
The Original Constitution is a timeless work. It gives you the tools you need to understand the proper role of the federal government and to counter common myths about America’s Founders and the Constitution they gave us. Written in a style readily understandable by the average citizen, this book certainly will be an indispensable part of your personal library.
