The Constitution – A Revolutionary Story
We just love to argue about politics, and our social media feeds tell us that today's political discourse volume dial is perpetually turned to 11. We argue, debate, scream and shout, unfriend, unfollow, and throw the occasional tantrum in the Wal-Mart Arts and Crafts aisle.
The most interesting thing is that much of our collective ranting is based on a knowledge platform of, well, not as much as we might like. In fact, I figure that 173.19 trillion of us have never actually read the Constitution. OK, admittedly that number might be more of an estimate than a carefully researched fact.
Why do we never seem to get around to digesting the national instruction book? Probably because it's somewhat boring to read as it's full of words like "attainder" and "emoluments." I don't know about you, but I've never seen the word "attainder" before, not even on the Master's Series of Wheel of Fortune.
That's precisely why I wrote The Constitution - A Revolutionary Story. I had an ambitious goal: to make the Constitution's history and meaning so simple that even a career politician could understand it. I know, it's not just an adventure; it's my job.
