Description

Dear Reader,

Many people have wondered why I’ve been speaking out on controversial issues for the last few years. They say I’ve never held political office. I’m not a constitutional scholar. I’m not even a lawyer. All I can say to that is “Guilty as charged.”


It’s true that I’ve never voted for a budget America could not afford. I’ve never raised anyone’s taxes. And I’ve never promised a lobbyist anything in exchange for a donation.

Luckily, none of that really matters. Our founding fathers didn’t want a permanent governing class of professional politicians. They wanted a republic, in Lincoln’s words, "of the people, by the people, and for the people." A country where any farmer, small-business owner, manual laborer, or doctor could speak up and make a difference.

I believe that making a difference starts with understanding our amazing founding document, the U.S. Constitution. And as someone who has performed brain surgery thousands of times, I can assure you that the Constitution isn’t brain surgery.

The founders wrote it for ordinary men and women, in clear, precise, simple language. They intentionally made it short enough to read in a single sitting and to carry in your pocket.

I wrote this book to encourage every citizen to read and think about the Constitution, and to help defend it from those who misinterpret and undermine it. In our age of political correctness it’s especially important to defend the Bill of Rights, which guarantees our freedom to speak, bear arms, practice our religion, and much more.

The Constitution isn’t history—it’s about your life in America today. And defending it is about what kind of country our children and grandchildren will inherit.

I hope you’ll enjoy learning about the fascinating ways that the founders established the greatest democracy in history—and the ways that recent presidents, congresses, and courts have threatened that democracy.

As the Preamble says, the purpose of the Constitution is to create a more perfect union. My goal is to empower you to help protect that union and secure the blessings of liberty.

Sincerely,
Ben Carson

    This book is a beautifully crafted piece that explains step by step, the Constitution and the 27 amendments along with Carson's input. He believes in the power of we, "the People" to rebuild this nation using the guidelines that our founding fathers have set up for us. He lets us know that we, the American people must be able to understand the laws of the land to remain vigilant of those we elect in office. The government which was once in favor of the good of its citizens is now downtrodden, heavily weighted on its own political agendas. We have the power to change its direction and to find out how, you should read this book! I recommend this book to everybody because Carson's artistic words aim toward uniting ALL people of good ethics. It is a through explanation of how our government works the way it does and what are our rights as American citizens. I've learned more in this book about the operation of American government than all of my US history courses combined! Everybody can learn and feel inspired from this book! Absolutely love this!

    A truly awesome and inspiring book that gives the basic structure of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. It was almost chilling too read and you could almost feel the passion in the way it was written. I think this is Dr. Ben's best book yet. I would highly recommend.

    Another great book by Dr. Ben Carson. He had my respect and admiration from the first book he wrote. I have read them all. I am praying he will be our next president.
