Ignore the morons who comment on the constitution and not on the product, which is this compilation.Nov 08, 2009
By Kevin the Lawyer
Unlike the half-wits who are commenting on the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and the Articles of Confederation, I will be commenting on the publishers (Wilder Publications & A&D Publishing) compilation of the documents. DO NOT buy this publication. The publisher inserted "notes" all over the place. I don't know if it was an accident in the copying of the documents from one format to another but it detracts from the text. And, this is absolutely brilliant, it inserted the following disclaimer: "This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today..." Really Wilder! that is your view of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution.

Awful editing, politically-correct disclaimer, a bit of a travestyMar 29, 2009
When I refer to the awful editing, I am, of course, not talking about the archaic spelling of some of the words which should remain spelled like they were in the original documents, I am referring to words like "note," or "history" that were sprinkled about in The Constitution. Article 6 of the Constitution appears twice in differing fonts. It is a nightmare of editorial proportions. Additionally on the copyright page there is a disclaimer telling us about how if the documents were written today, they would be more politically correct, and blah-blah (others have commented so I won't quote the bit.)
I would have only given this one star, but it contained a copy of The Articles of Confederation, as well as The Constitution and The Declaration of Independence, so, for convenience-sake I'm bumping it to 2 stars.
Awful, awful editing...totally unnecessary and frankly insulting disclaimer. Find another publisher if you wish to buy these documents.

Publisher tells us how to interpret the constitution!Jan 12, 2010
By Chester Jones
Disclaimer from the publisher;
"This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and interpersonal relations have changed since this book was written before allowing them to read this classic work."
Buy a copy of the Constitution from another publisher!

THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATESJun 07, 2010
If I had known the disclaimer was in the front of this book, warning people about the contents, I would never have purchased it. If you love our country and the laws on which it is based, you should find another source for these papers.
