Get excited, like me, by studying law? Have you taken any courses, classes on American Law, Natural law, constitutional law? Have you read our U.S. Constitution (one of the thinnest National Constitutions in the world)?
The Constitution contains 4,543 words, including the signatures and has four sheets, 28-3/4 inches by 23-5/8 inches each. It contains 7,591 words including the 27 amendments. The Constitution was ratified by specially elected conventions beginning in December 1787.

The Constitution, the Articles, and Federalism: Crash Course US History #8
In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren’t of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it’s very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You’ll learn about Shays’ Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is.

Introduction to Constitutional Law: How to Approach Constitutional Law Fact Patterns [LEAP Preview]
Watch this video closely, first for the peaceful wall of non-violent mothers, next to the US Navy Vet’s nonviolent attempt to talk with the Federal Agents. Watch the Federal Agent (see U.S. Marshall) response to both forms of non-violent protest. Does this look like sound law enforcement practice to you? Do these Federal Agents have training in law enforcement? Are the Federal Agents maintaining peace or fomenting chaos (see intentional). Does this worry you? If so what is the best way to protest? Do we peacefully gather with like minded souls to march together with signs that document our concerns?
I would argue that each and every soul who plans to protest do so peacefully, and only after reading our constitution, have knowledge of your constitutional rights and be prepared for agitators to both your constitutional freedoms and your peaceful message. Remember that a right comes with a responsibility.
Ask yourself you has the most to gain from our apparent Right/Left political divide? Consider how much Americans have in common when we think like Americans with the full interest of preserving our precious constitutional Republic.
