Basic information here

The United States Constitution and Bill Of Rights were put into place by the new thinking government of the youngest Country in the world, the USA. The intent is to preserve the rights of the people, by the people and for the people.

In line with the new Democracy the USA would propell its new economy with a Capitalistic structure, promoting people right to work and earn a living and prosper offered through the United States Constitution.

This was in direct conflict of the rest of the worlds Dictator like structures which had over time controlled the people and their religion, belief's, freedom of speech and all other freedom, concluding in proscution and death for no reason.

America's Constitution is the only protector American's have to safeguard a good life, liberty from government over rule and to be happy and enjoy the persuit of this happiness.

The reason for America's development in the first place was to gain over all freedom from Facists like governments (as an example, Hitlers Germany the most recent) dominance and control.

 

 

Happy 4th of July 2014!

Although America has survived many encounters by its own political forces it has dwindled in the observation of the original doctrins and keeps getting impact moreso today than ever. An example of this is "The Right To Work " initivive. We live in America not some Communist country.

We have had the right to work since our begining. This was perfected by the unions that developed in the early 1900's that have protected the workers and primarily the middle classes of Americans to date.
