Studies show that the vast majority of American don't know what the Constitution says. That means that most Americans don't know how to defend the liberties they claim are so important to them. Why should you read the Constitution of the United States? Not only is the U.S. Constitution the supreme law of the land, (you'll read that in Article VI, Clause 2), but it will help you protect your rights. As the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, John Jay, said:"Every member of the State ought diligently to read and to study the constitution of his country, and teach the rising generation to be free. By knowing their rights, they will sooner perceive when they are violated, and be the better prepared to defend and assert them."Maybe you wanted to read the Constitution, but thought it would be to difficult? Well here is a tool that can help you. Yes, you can read the entire Constitution, and the Declaration of Independence in just five minutes a day for 30 days.

Do this once a day for 30 days, and you've read through the entire Constitution.You can use this tool to not only help defend your own rights, but the rights of your children and grandchildren. So start your trip to constitutional literacy today with this easy tool.
