About the author:
I am not an attorney, nor am I a 'Constitutional Scholar'. I am merely an American citizen with a moderate level of education and a wealth of real-world experience. I have listened with dismay over the past several years as elected Senators and Representatives proudly declare that they have either never read the Constitution or freely admit that they do not understand it.
The advantage I have over most politicians and lawyers is that I have actually read these foundational documents.
Having served in the Army in Viet Nam and being an Oath Keeper, I feel I have a voice in the current discussions about our country, and my voice will often disagree with the direction our leaders are taking. I feel our government leadership has lost its way...it has no moral compass.
The American Constitution
Ronald N. Goulden, MBA
This may well be the most important 85 pages you will ever read.
The book is written on the simple premise that the men who wrote this document (along with the Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights, which together are the definitive founding documents of our country and the Rule of Law in America) were highly intelligent and experienced Statesmen who had lived under the yoke of tyranny under King George III. The distinction here is that they were Statesmen, not politicians. The words they wrote were well-considered and reviewed in order to ensure they communicated the intent of the founders.
They wrote these documents not obfuscate and confuse, but to share and enlighten.
Using less than 5000 words, the founders created a nation, conceived in liberty and the belief that all men are created equal, that they were endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.
In a time when our leaders are men and women skilled in confusing and avoiding simple facts, it is prudent to have a simple interpretation of the foundational documents of our nation; The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, The Bill of Rights, and the Amendments to the Constitution.
I've also included other important, but often misunderstood documents, such as The Gettysburg Address and The Emancipation Proclamation.
