About 2 years since I posted on the United States Constitution. About time I continue! For Amendments 1-3, click one of the relevant tags at the bottom of this post. Remember: I am NOT a lawyer. I simply post the Amendment from the U.S. Constitution, as well as definitions of less-common words from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Interpretation and pro-action is up to the individual and/or group. I claim no responsibility for what happens if you stick up for your American rights, nor if you don't.
