These founding documents are like the Bible . . .,
This review is from: The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America (Paperback)
These founding documents are like the Bible . . .often quoted, seldom read. In fact it is worse, since they are seldom read, when people quote-unquote "quote" them, they are actually spouting nonsense, as opposed to the political wisdom of the ages.
It is... imperative, therefore, that we should become familiar with these two philosophical pillars of political freedom. This book puts these heavenly banners and glorious standards into your hand-the truth is at your fingertips--to check up on the politicians. If they do anything crooked, keep in mind that it is our fault for not being aware and active in stopping them.
Don't be intimidated by the language. There is an old saying that Plato is easier to understand the Platonists. The original documents are easier to understand than the snake twisting that many lawyers and fanatics put to the documents. You asre smart enough to decide for yourself.

Bibble is missused dogma but The declaration of independence is MAN's forgotten reason to be man. Every Taliban freedom fighter should have one ...OR am I wrong ?

Every Taliban Freedom Fighter NEEDS to get one. Perhaps if they read these words and could understand that "America" is an idea as much as a country, they'd become the Sons of Liberty in their own nations.
