Publisher Description

The Bill of Rights is the collective name for the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution. Proposed to assuage the fears of Anti-Federalists who had opposed Constitutional ratification, these amendments guarantee a number of personal freedoms, limit the government's power in judicial and other proceedings, and reserve some powers to the states and the public. Originally the amendments applied only to the federal government, however, most were subsequently applied to the government of each state by way of the Fourteenth Amendment, through a process known as incorporation.

Required reading,

To the person who said they're incomplete.....uh, the First 10 Amendments are the Bill of Rights.

Bill of Rights

I wish they made another with all amendments to the Constitution. But very well done quick and easy. Sometimes it’s hard to see how those words have been twisted to serve a cause other than our personal freedoms. In my opinion they are quite clear.
