The Pocket Catechism of the Constitution of the United States by Arthur J. Stansbury (Preface)



5 of 5 stars  *****

The Pocket Catechism of the Constitution of the United States is written just under 40 years after the Constitution is ratified. Even then, the bulk of the population in America prove to be deficient in knowledge about this incredible document. The onus is on parents and teachers to educate subsequent generations about the beauty of this cogent, thoughtful concept of law which recognizes God as the Supreme Being without the coronation of any one religion as the ruling faith in this country. The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land. 

This small catechism is written for young men, back in the day, but is a refreshing update for today's youth and adult men and women. Since its writing, one can see how the conniving nature of man tries to interpret its wording, the Spirit of the Law, to fit their own agenda, whether for party or individual. Their efforts restrict American individuals' and states' sovereignty, their liberties and their rights as government grows larger and the masses become placated to indifference. This free work of importance is highly recommended lest the greatest society to exist in all of history be undermined by the power-hungry evils of avarice.
