US Constitution Discussion Index

Perspectives on our world and our universe, how it works, what is happening, and why it happens. Whether by a hidden hand or natural laws, we come together to hash it out, and perhaps provide a little bit of education and enlightenment for others. This is a place for civil discussion. Please keep it that way.

US Constitution Discussion Index

The Constitution threads have not been getting the attention for which I had hoped, so I'm going to follow Fixer's suggestion and post this sticky index for them, with brief summaries of the topics. I am also going to start adding what I hope will be provocative notes or questions to follow the original posts containing the Constitution segments quoted. Those linked have been posted; those not linked will be posted according to the normal Monday/Friday posting schedule.
