About the Author
Founding Fathers of the United States (also known as the Framers, Fathers of Our Country, or the Founders) are the political leaders who signed the Declaration of Independence or the United States Constitution, or otherwise participated in the American Revolution as leaders of the Patriots.

By today's political standards, it's controversial, decidedly "un-american", and the simplest knowledge of it will bring you scorn from Democrats, Republicans, and (in the South) even many Veterans (not to mention having your phone tapped and all your mail read by Homeland Security).
Therefore, it's a must-read for every citizen in this country. If it wasn't for the printing cost, I'd say this should be free. This is the American Bible. Why not risk the penalties (real and forecasted) and take a look at it? Or better yet:
Own it. Read it. Live it.
The Constitution of the United States.
This work of legislative science fiction is a great idea. One can only wish that some country some day will put it into practice. It's a very nice, well-thought out, comprehensive and fairly consistent piece of political fiction.
The problem is that the ideas herein will never work in practice. At least not unless some stronger checks and balances are put on the rapid communications systems and media developed since this great endeavor and document was first formulated over 200 years ago.
The importance of this admirable ideological manifesto should none the less never be overrated. After all - as President G W Bush so eloquently has remarked - "It's just a piece of paper".
Don't look at what the supposed adherents of the principles within this "Constitution" preach and teach, look at what they do.
The constitution of the body of politics enacted by these adherents is certainly in bad health these days (April 2007). It's the constitution of a dying person, not even receiving intensive care.
Action always speaks louder than words. Take a close look at the deeds justified by this Constitution, and listen well to what they say.
