The United States Constitution is one the most famous documents of all time. What is the Constitution? It is a physical 200-year-old written document, signed by the first representatives and legislatures (the founding fathers) of every state that joined the union (the forming of the United States), since that time. What is its purpose and meaning? The Constitution was created to serve as official law when the new country was being born. It was meant to be understood exactly how it was read. It cannot be changed for a specific purpose or person. It is a tool to aid the people with creating a lawful country without fear of tyrants within the government. Only the people can change the rules within it, by vote and not time. The document does not change simply because of one person or group's interpretation of it, or the more modern times they live in. When was the last time you read the Preamble, Bill of Rights, Constitution, and the Amendments of the United States? Come find out for yourself that each document stated above is self-explanatory in meaning and a person does not have to be a scholar to understand it.

The U.S. Constitution: Here Is What it Says by Don Thayer is a highly educational, resourceful and insightful book. Don Thayer's purpose was to make it clear to readers that the Constitution cannot be interpreted differently for any reason. The text can only change when the people of the United States vote and say it can. Despite many scandals and political arguments over what the founder fathers or creators of the document meant at the time of writing it, this book is a clear indication that no argument can be made; the document speaks for itself and cannot be altered in any way. Although this book may appear hard to read as it is often hard to read political text, a reader will not be disappointed with the author's complete analysis and simple explanation of the exact words written in the American Constitution.
