An overwhelming number of HIGH SCHOOL graduates when asked to make a word with the word constitution, answer, but only after thinking on it for 3 to 4 minutes, "I was constitution for three days and finally went this morning!"

What are we to do?

Yeah, it's sad, but it's not like the Constitution means anything anymore. (at least not to most people)

It's still alive and well, just misunderstood by judges who are often wrong but never in doubt.  Overall, individual protections have actually grown more than diminished (the Government's intrusion into our lives has, unfortunately, grown as well).

Most people don't even know what it says.  I graduated from public high school and the only reason I really know anything about the constitution is because I READ it. I keep a copy in my truck, range bag and on my bed side table.

The constitution is the bounds placed upon government to which it can operate, when it goes beyond those bounds, it is no longer lawful, but that surely does not stop them when it comes to control, this is why very few if any these days in school even know what the constitution is, it is not tought anymore in the school systems across this great nation, thus serves to crush it ever so slowly!

Read The Constitution, a people that doesn't know their rights, won't know what they are losing every day.

that's sad.my school years were in the 60's and early 70's, when knowing the constitution and bill of rights was just an everyday part of life.our brothers were in Viet-nam.our fathers and uncles fought in WWII and Korea ,our grandfathers fought in WWI .we didn't need to be taught what the constitution means.just in my short lifetime(i'm 43)i've witness the chipping away of the meaning of the words,the words that makes us free.SLAP! man,i'm getting to be a ranty s.o.b.mmk

the survival of the constitution depends on free men willing to defend it.

In Arizona children have to memorize parts of the Constitution to even graduate to the next grade starting with the fourth grade.

The Pledge of allegiance is still mandatory also before class starts.
In my sons school the whole school assembles in the courtyard for a flag ceremony and then they all recite the pledge. At my daughters school it is done in the classrooms.

Man I love this state.

The Republic is lost.

the republic is lost only if we have less than half the balls of our founding fathers.
