Publisher's Disclaimer: "This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today."

Strict, not when convenient, adherence to the Constitution would mean we would still be able to realize the American Dream.

The Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and our other founding documents are not controversial, as Wilder would have us believe. Here is the text from the disclaimer that Wilder puts in this book:

"This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and interpersonal relations have changed since this book was written before allowing them to read this classic work."

This is so offensive I can't even think straight. Literary censorship is already stupid enough as it is, but to add FUNCTIONING, FOUNDING LEGAL DOCUMENTS to the long list of items that are "controversial" is total garbage. This will not stand.

Do not buy from Wilder. TOR has a version available that is correct and doesn't have this bogus nonsense attached to it. You fail, Wilder.

The disclaimer the Radford VA publisher chose to insert says it all: they actually urge Americans to "interpret" the Constitution. That's why we are in the mess we're in. Strict, not when convenient, adherence to the Constitution would mean we would still be able to realize the American Dream. Casting it aside for politicians' personal gain or to win elections has turned the American Dream into the American Nightmare.

Buy some other publisher's text. This one should be avoided and the publisher made to understand the error of their disclaimer.

I think it is just horrible that the publishing company has put a disclaimer warning on this book claiming that the constitution, and declaration of independence may be offensive, and no longer with current times. It is ashame that people today know so little about the founding of our country.

Progressives, liberals, statists - whatever you want to call them - are now trying to infect our great nation's foundational documents. Wilder Publications seeks to "nudge" us all back into the loss of freedoms that our founders fled. Individual liberties, and a limited government designed to protect those liberties, are now under attack from the people at Wilder Publications who are trying to pose the core foundational elements of our great nation as some kind of irrelevant historical artifact. BOYCOTT anything from Wilder Publications.

These are critical documents to understand, but please don't buy this copy or anything from this publisher. Anyone who would print a disclaimer on these documents of the sort included herein has absolutely no understanding of the documents and what they mean. I am disgusted that anyone would even think of putting something like that on these documents. They are readily available from other, more responsible, publishers right here on Amazon. Find others and make sure they are NOT printed by Wilder.

Should be zero stars! Because of the extremely offensive disclaimer by this publisher, I would never purchase this book. The documents discussed can be found in numerous volumes by other publishers.

Format: Paperback
The warning attached to these documents and the publisher who attached it is a disgrace to our country. These magnificent documents are the very foundation of our great country and our way of life. Anyone who participated in this fiasco should be fired and the publisher should be boycotted. How did we ever produce people who think this way? Our country is being destroyed from within. Shameful. Disgraceful.
