Now Online: The Heritage Guide to the Constitution

On 04.20.12 08:17 AM posted by Julia Shaw




The Constitution made a comeback these past few years. In 2009, then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (DĖCA) replied to a question about the constitutionality of Obamacare with ďAre you serious?Ē The American people were serious. They began carrying the Constitution everywhere, read it to their representatives, and then elected new Members of Congress who would actually read it too.

Reading the Constitution has been a great start, but itís not enough. Now, we need to learn what it means. Heritageís authoritative source on the Constitution is a tool to do just that: ConstitutionOnline.com.

Itís comprehensive. Heritage brought together 100 of the nationís best legal experts to create the only clause-by-clause examination of the Constitution and how itís been interpreted over the years.

Itís searchable. You wonít need Google to search the Constitution anymore. Search the entire document and hundreds of essays by the nationís leading legal experts on the historical context, meaning, and judicial interpretation of each clause. Untangle years of contradictory case law and find the original meaning of the First Amendment and how it protects freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

Itís user-friendly. ConstitutionOnline.com was designed with your mobile device in mind. Whether Android, iPhone, Tablet, or iPad, ConstitutionOnline.com works and looks beautifully on them all. Weíve made it much easier to Facebook or tweet you favorite clause.

Itís teachable. You donít need to go to law school to learn the Constitution. Teach yourself the Constitution with the teaching companion to the guide. Appropriate for classroom settings, reading groups, or individual self-study, the teaching companion covers every clause in the Constitution, summarizes each essay in the guide, and includes exercises and quizzes to facilitate understanding of the Constitutionís main concepts.

Itís for everyone. ConstitutionOnline.com gives students a real education on the Constitution and provides teachers with a tremendous resource for their classes. Itís also for Congressmen and their staff seeking ways to flex their constitutional muscles against the Professor-in-Chief (who may want to take a glimpse to learn what the Constitution actually means). ConstitutionOnline.com is for anyone who hungers for a deeper understanding of our First Principles and how they influence todayís debates.

No document is more central to securing ďthe Blessing of Liberty to ourselves and our PosterityĒ than the United States Constitution, and no website is more thorough than ConstitutionOnline.com.
