Book Description

Have you ever had trouble understanding the United States Bill of Rights?

Have you ever wondered what was really meant by one or more of the ten amendments?

Have you ever been unsure as to how these rights apply to modern society?

Have you even questioned if the Bill of Rights should still be held as inviolable law, nearly 250 years after its writing?

Here's the truth: the Bill of Rights is not easy to understand if you just pick it up and give it a read. The eloquent style in which it's written can be confusing. The language can cause misunderstandings. There's a lot of legal terminology that's beyond most of us. Without an understanding of the historical background of certain amendments, it's impossible to fully understand their importance and scope. And to top it all off, there are countless politicians and pundits that try to interpret our rights for us and tell us what the Founders meant.

But are you comfortable letting crooked politicians decide what your rights are? Or would you rather know and be able to insist on, with certainty, the freedoms our Founders intended for you, your family, your friends, and your fellow Americans? If you're like millions of other Americans, you'll choose the latter.

Thomas Jefferson said, "Educate and inform the whole mass of the people...They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty." He also said, "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free... it expects what never was and never will be."

That's why this book was created, and it would make the Founders proud if they were here today. This book helps you easily reach a deep understanding of the Bill of Rights by walking you through each amendment, clarifying the precise definitions of key words; providing the historical context you need to fully grasp and spirit and importance of the amendments; sharing powerfully insightful quotes on each amendment, straight from the Founders and their peers; supplying you with an extensive glossary of terms so you never get lost in a dictionary or encyclopedia trying to understand what you're reading; and more.

The Founders fought tirelessly to guarantee you specific rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Don't let two-faced politicians and pundits tell you what your rights are.

Scroll up and click the "Buy" button now to learn your rights, and together, we can keep the spirit of freedom alive in this great nation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The U.S. Constitution for Dummies 1 May 2012
By Vandernise1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to
review it.

This books was short and to the point, the main point being that those who don't know their rights may one day be in danger of losing them. The author speaks in clear English to translate the flowery, more eloquent speech used to write the United States Constitution. He gives a glossary of definitions so that we know exactly what the words mean, rather than leaving them open for interpretation. I think the thing I like most about this book is that it doesn't attempt to interpret the Constitution for us. He doesn't tell us what he thinks the words mean, or what politicians or other influential members of society think the words mean. He gives us literal definitions and allows us to interpret the context based upon those definitions. He stays very apolitical. He also gives some interesting context about what was going on behind the scenes at the time that led to certain parts being included in the Constitution to begin with. He quotes the Federalist Papers and other documents written at the time so that we can see the debate that went on about why to word a particular article one way as opposed to another. That in particular was very enlightening for me. This book is a quick, easy read. And it is one that I will read again and again, and use to teach my children about their rights in this greatest nation on Earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vital data on our Bill of Rights 14 April 2012
By software geek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I always thought that my childhood education was generally pretty decent on American History, especially compared to the current, youngest generation. I also believed I knew the Constitution and its Bill of Rights fairly well. And while I knew parts of it well, I certainly didn't know all of it, nor the history that preceded and led to these rights. I came the realize that none of this was at all arbitrary. These rights were well thought out by the Founders and even the exact wording was given much consideration to get it correct. Mr. Clouden discusses each right in detail by giving its historical background that led to it, listing out the amendment itself and also, and very importantly, gives the definitions to key words of each amendment so that they are not misunderstood. The book also includes a thorough glossary.

I only wish each representative of Congress, each judge and justice and the President and Vice President of the United States would study this book and the Constitution. They all swear an Oath to the Constitution but what good is that if they don't know what is in it.

Mr. Clouden also challenges us. With great knowledge comes great responsibility. It is OUR Bill of Rights. We need to take ownership of it and get others up to the same level of understanding. Freedom is a wonderful thing but along with it seems to be a constant battle to protect it from being snatched away. It really shouldn't be that way, but current reality and history demonstrates that we have to continually fight to keep it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Historical Background -- Know Your Bill of Rights 20 Mar. 2012
By Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Know Your Bill of Rights does an excellent job to provide both a "basic" and "complete" historical context for the Bill of Rights. This is very well researched and documented, explaining the original intent, the historical context and the debates that preceded the drafting of the different items in the Bill of Rights, and then some of the ongoing historical evolution. The author extensively cites many viewpoints and concerns of a variety of historical figures that have been part of the discussion for these issues. The author brings a factual discussion of the history and debate(S)and avoids personal interpretation or opinion. This provides extensive background. As a result it is ideal for providing a full context of the many interpretations and debates that we see referencing the ammendments in "The Bill of Rights". Definitely a must-read for those wanting a more complete understanding of history concerning the Bill of Rights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Know Your Bill of Rights 4 Mar. 2012
By Christopher F. Ottavi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
After I read The Know Your Bill of Rights book I realized how little I knew about
The Bill of Rights as well as the importance of making every person aware of
their personal rights that were set up by by or forefathers over 200 yes ago.
The evolution of how these rights came about through our history is especially
enlightening. I really appreciate the hard work that the author did to make
the Bill of Rights so much easier to understand and apply. Keeping these rights
alive and vibrant is of utmost importance if we are going to continue to enjoy
our Democracy. Thanks!
