what is the Constitution?

 

In your own words, what is the Constitution?

To you, what does it say about the rights of people? Note: Be careful, because it is not obvious what “rights” are really in the Constitution and it would be a mistake to use that stuff “everybody knows,” because it is technically insufficient and often incorrect.

Rather than taking on the whole landscape, choose four “rights” and give specific evidence that it is a right and from where this right emanates. Be sure what you choose truly addresses granting rights to the people specifically and not rights that you think are implied by the wording.
