A 10-Minute Guide to the U.S. Constitution

The Constitution has been in the news lately on several fronts. Health care, WikiLeaks, and gun rights have become central pieces of discussion with the U.S. Constitution as the focus. Who has time to read it?

It's the backbone to American society that has stood for hundreds of years. We take it for granted because it has, thus far, worked. As it goes under the microscope with experts, politicians, and the media looking into the validity of recent events, the rest of us are stuck listening to others so we can have an understanding.

Or do we?

This quick glimpse at the U.S. Constitution by our friends at Mindflash breaks down this relatively short but complex document in a way that "the rest of us" can understand. It's surprising that it only really covers 27 items. When looked at through the right perspective, it really isn't that hard to grasp.

    I think you have a typo under the executive branch description: "The President enforces the laws before a law is passed must agree to it". Does not make sense.
