Complete text & audio of the U.S. constitution and its amendments. Listen and read along.

► INTRODUCTION

The United States Constitution is the supreme law of the United States of America. The Constitution, originally comprising seven articles, delineates the national frame of government. Its first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it.

Since the Constitution came into force in 1789, it has been amended twenty-seven times. In general, the first ten amendments, known collectively as the Bill of Rights, offer specific protections of individual liberty and justice and place restrictions on the powers of government. The majority of the seventeen later amendments expand individual civil rights protections. Others address issues related to federal authority or modify government processes and procedures. Amendments to the United States Constitution, unlike ones made to many constitutions world-wide, are appended to the end of the document. At seven articles and twenty-seven amendments, it is the shortest written constitution in force. All five pages of the original U.S. Constitution are written on parchment.

The Constitution is interpreted, supplemented, and implemented by a large body of constitutional law. The Constitution of the United States is the first constitution of its kind, adopted by the people’s representatives for an expansive nation; and it has influenced the constitutions of other nations.

  1. Under the constitution no woman is eligible to run for president or vice president. He as stated in the constitution means man not woman.

  2. 0:16 already error is visible first the date then a word. "Of" isn't the original wording. "For" is the original wording !

  3. Been trying to educate people ,and even offered assistance to file claims, no one's interested…anyone who believes there's a thing called qualified immunity is deceived. A corporate fiction has fictitious powers but no man does !!!!

  4. Haven't looked or heard any of this video but I'm here to tell you that every administration from the time the District of Columbia set foot on American soil (1791) this contractual instrument has been slowly and steadily eroded into a complete control of the American people. The UNITED STATES is and has always been a private corporation chartered to manage foreign trade and protect the individual God given rights humanity is endowed with. Only problem is in 1760 a document for a one world order was written also, hence a constitutional foothold that was created to usurp 300 years of common lore …

  5. Forward this to these many mostly Democratic Governors (Newsom) etc that are destroying our states. A few Republican ones also overreacting to this damn virus.

  6. A document written by rich white landowners for rich white landowners. Everyone else has had to actually fight to get their say. The poor are still poor and the rich have only gotten richer. Now the united states is ran like a business and full of right wing greedy ass holes who deny science.

  11. You can almost see where professional politicians began to have an influence in the way things are written. It starts out very very clear and concise and honest and true, (and interesting) but as more and more people began to contribute to our hallowed document, the more obtuse it gets. I was listening to this as I was driving and about 25:00 in, it started to get a little too formal legally. Still good, of course.
    And now so many people have added to it that it almost contradicts itself. But it's still about the best there is, and we owe its existence to the Mother Country, Great Britain, and the problems it had that we sought to eliminate. If only we had copied their anti-slavery position! (of course, they certainly gained the benefits of their colonies using slave labor when they wouldn't. Cheap cotton, for one…)Think how different the country would be.

  12. I undestsnd that section ,8 and 3 could be used today.First to use militia to get all the insurrectionist and
    traitors.So what we have here is,a right to Arrest all these Protestors and all associated,including government officials who threaten this country and our President.
    Maybe some needs to read this on the,Senate floor.Like the lady in fla.who served their city hall with papers detailing their over reach of power!!!

  13. It's the democrats says fox news. It's cnn, msnbc, cbs, nbc, abc, the bbc, the cia, the fbi, homeland security… all the people of the rest of the world and beyond who is wrong. Only trump and fox news is right. lol, got it! No propaganda there huh?

  14. Any DictatorDon supporter & bluethug lives supporter need reeducation on the Constitution and Bill of Rights. If that doesn't work……..

  15. Why wasn't I told about this in school? I just kept getting told men are rapist im a male will soon be a rapist? I know that's not true but why indoctrinate me to be a rapist?

  16. Our forefathers who wrote the Constitution are turning in their graves, as they never thought that future US leaders could be so corrupt.

  17. It's too bad the writers of the constitution left a GIANT LOOPHOLE allowing people IGNORANT of the constitution to run for office.

  18. We lost our country when Wilson was blackmailed into signing into law the private federal reserve !! JFK was getting rid of the federal reserve ,JFK printed USA TREASURY DOLLARS backed by silver he was murdered 6 weeks later =FACT

  19. How about the Constitution for the United States of America of September 09, 1776.

    The Constitutions after that were part of a corporate takeover.

  20. Every other countries throughout the the should make their constitutional video. Individual citizens should know the law s soon as they finish high school. police officer should be learning from this video
