Format: Paperback
At the very least, the bill of rights is completely revised, so if you read this, as your source of information, you have no idea what the ORIGINAL Bill of Rights states.

Is this an accident? Probably not. Have you read 1984?

That this kind of book is allowed to be published is a crime. The author is a traitor to the Constitution.

Format: Paperback
This book gives a breif synopsis onf our bill of rights. This is quoting how they explain the 2nd ammendment. "The people have a right to bare arms in a state militia."
This goes against every supreme court decision on the meaning of the second ammendment. As the first line of the 2nd is actually a preamble. Popular in writings of that time. This book has very little real history inside. Its mostly just a progessive indoctrination peice...

the fact that this fictional text has taken basic historical documents and changed the wording to fit the ideals of the authors gives an idea of the reliability that should be given to it. if this text can't be trusted with most basic facts, how can anything that is written be trusted?

Why cant an author get it right and have the correct Amendments listed? This is ridiculous. Do you think the people will not realize?

This book fails in every way to place anyone above 1st grade level education.

The second amendment is misrepresented on page 102 by stating only members of a state militia have the right to keep and bear arms. Why would you allow this to be sold on your site. I love my Amazon Prime membership. This book must go.

This book rewrites history the way the author wants it to be not the way it was! Do not let schools use someone's personal view of history as fact. DO not allow your schools to purchase and use this book. Demand it's removal from your school.

Do not buy this book. They have basically rewritten the Bill of Rights, check out #2 on page #102 concerning the right to bear arms! Enough said! Don't let your child be brainwashed by the powers that be.

This book taught me that anyone backed by a publisher can rewrite the constitution to their liking. How cool, I can't wait to publish my own interpretation. The author of this book should publicly apologize to all those who fight for our constitution.
