Product 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 Time for a refresher course 13 March 2017
By J. Chambers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When the first draft of the U.S. Constitution was completed in 1787, it lacked a vital component: a positive statement of inalienable rights guaranteed to all citizens of the nation. The Bill of Rights, inspired by Thomas Jefferson and drafted by James Madison, was adopted, and in 1791 the Constitution's first ten amendments became the law of the land.

Unlike many books that simply try to interpret the Constitution for the reader, author Sean Patrick goes into the background of each clause in the Bill of Rights and why the Framers wrote it that way. He begins by defining the words used to communicate the specific concepts of the Bill of Rights which, when combined with the historical background of the Constitution, give a good understanding of the real meaning of the words the Framers chose.

The book looks at all ten of the amendments known as the Bill of Rights. The 1st Amendment gets a particularly detailed analysis since it's one of our most important constitutional rights. I particularly enjoyed the discussion on the freedom of the press. I learned a lot about this right and how it has evolved over the years. The chapter on the 2nd Amendment tackles the question of an armed citizenry. Is this a protection of personal or collective rights? (Since the first nine amendments all address individual rights, my opinion is that the 2nd Amendment also protects individual rights, an interpretation that has been generally upheld by federal courts.) Other amendments are also explained in a very readable manner.

I think it's vitally important for citizens to understand the freedoms we have and how they're protected by our Constitution. Sean Patrick has done a nice job of explaining the Bill of Rights and how it came into being.

Great book. It gets to the point and provides a lot of historical background. The author tries to take an objective standpoint on the issue and does a pretty job at maintaining this objectivity. The book is a lot shorter than the page number indicates. This is because there is a fairly comprehensive glossary, with hundreds of definitions, at the end that covers all of the terms in the book as well as many other important people, things, and terminology that arises in standard legal history and practices. Reading through the glossary is like another book in itself and provides a great foundation. I would have given the book 4 stars had it not been for that glossary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the Book 11 February 2016

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very educational! I am proud I found this book and read it; plan to read it again. I also plan to recommend, strongly, this book to friends and family members. Anyone, no matter their political or religions affiliation should read this. The writer brought into the writings comments and opinions of many of our country's earliest politicians which put the spotlight on why opinions were made either for or against something. I encourage anyone to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative 27 August 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I chose this book, because I consider myself politically active. I often debate with people about current events and politics. I needed a book that would brush up on my understanding of the Bill of Rights. I'm more than pleased with this book. it's a book that in my opinion, should be mandatory reading for high schoolers! what a blessing it is to have our Natural Rights secured for us by our Constitution. This book will serve as a great educational tool to any audience. not only does it list what the Bill lays out, but also gives appropriate background info, and thus helps you not only understand meaning, but also intent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Are you willing to give these up? Do you know what they are? 2 December 2013
By Krkrjk - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Far too many citizens of the United States of America have forgotten, ignored, disregarded, dismissed the first ten Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, commonly known as the Bill of Rights. Why are these rights different that the rest that follow the first ten; it is because the founders believed that these right were "unalienable" (or our present day word of "inalienable")which means rights that are "unable to be taken away from or given away by the possessor". They meant these right were ours by birth, by life and no one, including our own government can take them away and neither are we able to give them away. I refer you to the words of President John F. Kennedy in his Inaugural Address "And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe–the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God." Ask yourself this question. "Am I willing to give up these rights?" Free speech? Worship (or not worship)? Free Press? Assembly? Speedy trial? Protection from unreasonable search and seizure? And much more. Read them, learn them and treasure them. Be very, very careful how you vote in the future. These rights and our nation depends on that.
