The intent of this website is to remind you to think about the actual meaning of the United States Constitution. Don't let anyone convince you that only a constitutional scholar can understand it's true meaning. Although there is specific legal terminology in Article 1, Section 9, the majority of the U. S. Constitution is written in pretty simple language, anyone can understand it.

The U S Constitution is a written document, signed by the first state representatives and the legislatures of every state that has joined the Union since that time. It is not a living, breathing document that automatically changes with the times. It is a living, breathing document that we can change any time we want through the amendment process, as defined in Article 5 of the U S Constitution. It is a written document that means what it says.

Neither federal, state, nor local laws overwrite it.

Nowhere does the U S Constitution say it can or should be interpreted according to "original intent", nor does it give the Judiciary the power to "interpret" it's meaning. Article 5 of the Constitution states that it requires 2/3 of both houses of Congress, or the legislatures of 2/3 of the states to propose amendments, and those amendments must be ratified by the legislatures of 3/4 of the states to become a part of the Constitution.

It delegates Federal powers specifically in Article 1, Section 8 and specifies limits to the same in Article 1, Section 9. Amendment 10 of the Bill Of Rights clarifies limits to Federal power:

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people". Amendment 10 - ratified December 15, 1791

Author Don Thayer

My name is Don Thayer, I've lived in Northwest Colorado for 13 years. For several years I planned on designing a moderate political website, to counter the Liberal and Conservative sites that give only one side of the argument. I constantly procrastinated because I didn't want to waste my time and effort simply to vent my own frustrations about the political partisanship in this country. Most Americans already side with either Democrats or Republicans, and I feel partisanship today is strong enough that any effort to bring both sides together is wasted. But when Democrats began their recent assault on gun ownership rights(2012), I decided not to sit by silently and watch it happen. If my time is wasted, that's too bad, at least I've made an effort.

Aa a companion to this site, I've set up a Facebook page to share current news and commentary on the Constitution, as well as quotes and images from the founders. In Feb 2014, I published a book that simply emphasizes the text of the Constitution as it was written.

Ultimately, after arguing with locals on our newspaper's online forum, and realizing their opinions are set in stone, regardless of what the law says, I decided to simply emphasize the facts and let everyone decide for themselves. Too many Americans today, both Liberals and Conservatives, believe the U S Constitution doesn't really matter, sometimes new laws must be passed because of the importance of the issue.

Maybe, eventually, we'll realize we aren't always right, and we'll make an effort to remind ourselves that the U S Constitution is the ultimate law of the land. Maybe we can learn to compromise on new legislation, instead of simply getting revenge for the last 4 years when our people re-take power.
