SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND
In the United States the Government receives its power to govern from the citizens. We have a Government of the people, by the people and for the people. And this is defined and established in the Constitution of the United States, the Supreme Law of the land.
The founders fathers of the United States wrote the Constitution in 1787, because they wanted to a nation that is governed by law and not by men. The United States is the oldest Constitution in the world and sets the basic principles of the Government of this country. It is a system of representative democracy, in which citizens choose representatives to legislate, just as they choose a President who lead the Executive branch. The strength in the Government is due to the separation and independence of each of its branches.
The Constitution enumerates fundamental rights of all citizens and those who live in the United States. Any new law that wants to be enacted should follow the Constitution. Honor and respect is one of the duties of every citizen of this country.
