Complete text & audio of the U.S. constitution and its amendments. Listen and read along. ► INTRODUCTION The United States Constitution is the supreme law of the United States of America. The Constitution, originally comprising seven articles, delineates the national frame of government. Its first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. Since the Constitution came into force in 1789, it has been amended twenty-seven times. In general, the first ten amendments, known collectively as the Bill of Rights, offer specific protections of individual liberty and justice and place restrictions on the powers of government. The majority of the seventeen later amendments expand individual civil rights protections. Others address issues related to federal authority or modify government processes and procedures. Amendments to the United States Constitution, unlike ones made to many constitutions world-wide, are appended to the end of the document. At seven articles and twenty-seven amendments, it is the shortest written constitution in force. All five pages of the original U.S. Constitution are written on parchment. The Constitution is interpreted, supplemented, and implemented by a large body of constitutional law. The Constitution of the United States is the first constitution of its kind, adopted by the people's representatives for an expansive nation; and it has influenced the constitutions of other nations. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Constitution ► INDEX (Click on time to jump to section) 01.

Free speech? The right to bear arms? These passages are cited so often that it's hard to imagine the document without them. But the list of freedoms known as the Bill of Rights was not in the original text and wasn't added for three years. Why not? James Coll goes back to the origins of the Constitution to find out.

The Bill of Rights
 
27:27
PowerPoint available at: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-Eoc-Academy The video teaches the protections and limits of the US Bill of Rights. Includes a breakdown of Amendments I - X and their effects on the United States. Students will have an understanding of each amendment in the Bill of Rights. This includes limits on the the rights listed in the Bill of Rights and the protections that these amendments provide for Americans. The Bill of Rights is a major focus of the Florida End-of-Course Exam (EOC) and most civics state exams. The following is a break-down of the protections and limits in this video: Amendment I - the first amendment protects freedom of speech, religion, assembly, petition, and the press... Speech obviously includes the ability to express yourself. However there are limits such as slander & libel, and causing panic or fear with your words. Amendment II: the Bill of Rights protects the right to "bear arms." This politically volatile issue is too political for me to discuss the pro's and con's but I suggest you research for yourself. Amendment III: the third amendment protects from quartering soldiers. While this amendment is extremely dated you will still need to be aware of it for your exam. Amendment IV: the Fourth Amendment protects from unreasonable search and seizure. This is the closest constitutional protection for the right to privacy. This amendment includes the need for the government to obtain a search warrant before searching someone's private property. The fifth amendment Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams. As a civics teacher I have often looked for civics YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. While they might be a little basic for AP Government students, they could serve as a refresher of basic concepts and content. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens. I have also been reached by parents whose children are taking Florida Virtual School’s (FLVS) Civics class. ***For noncommercial, educational, and archival purposes under Law of Fair Use as provided in section 107 of the US copyright law.

Civil Rights & Liberties: Crash Course Government #23
 
07:56
Today, Craig is going to give you an overview of civil rights and civil liberties. Often these terms are used interchangeably, but they are actually very different. Our civil liberties, contained in the Bill of Rights, once only protected us from the federal government, but slowly these liberties have been incorporated to protect us from the states. We’ll take a look at how this has happened and the supreme court cases that got us here.

The United States Bill of Rights
 
05:38
The Preamble to The Bill of Rights: Congress of the United States begun and held at the City of New-York, on Wednesday the fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine. THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution. RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all, or any of which Articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution; viz. ARTICLES in addition to, and Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, proposed by Congress, and ratified by the Legislatures of the several States, pursuant to the fifth Article of the original Constitution. Note: The following text is a transcription of the first ten amendments to the Constitution in their original form. These amendments were ratified December 15, 1791, and form what is known as the "Bill of Rights." Amendment I Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Amendment II A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Amendment III No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law. Amendment IV The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. Amendment V No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation. Amendment VI In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence. Amendment VII In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law. Amendment VIII Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. Amendment IX The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. Amendment X The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The Bill of Rights - Part 1 - Philosophy & History
 
06:27
Liberty is often fragile and has many enemies with both good and bad intentions -- and it is never guaranteed. Many people throughout recorded history in the United States and around the world have fought and died to obtain equal protection of their rights under the law and the simple freedom to live their lives as they choose. Diverse influences contributed significantly to the creation of the Bill of Rights and its eventual ratification on December 15th, 1791. Without the Founders' knowledge of philosophy & history and their active involvement in the American Revolution, American citizens today might never have enjoyed the freedom from government restrictions on the rights to speech and association, choice of religion, property ownership, or even the rights to self defense & fair trials. This unique combination of cultural, historical & philosophical influences produced what is arguably the most powerful tool for preventing tyranny ever created. But how did James Madison come up with these amendments? Produced by CitizenA Media (www.citizenamedia.com) Written, Animated & Edited by Sean W.

The Bill Of Rights
 
04:47
It was apprehension that the newly created Federal government of 1787 might abuse its power that led to the adoption of the Bill of Rights. You can't possibly realize the importance of this document unless you read and understand it. The purpose of this video is for you to hear the words spoken and to read along with it. Unfortunately the United States of America is now occupied by psychopaths who not only want the destruction of this very important document but total control over all humanity. The Bill of Rights is the most important document ever written in human history. If you love liberty if you love your freedom, know that once they take away the second amendment in the Bill of Rights they will take away all the others. Then you will ether be a total slave or have a bullet put in the back of your head. Thanks to JD for the inspiration.

ALL ABOUT THE BILL OF RIGHTS
 
03:10
Timestamp: 1:23 First Amendment 1:29 Second Amendment 1:36 Third Amendment 1:49 Fourth Amendment 1:56 Fifth Amendment 2:16 Sixth Amendment 2:24 Seventh Amendment 2:29 Eighth Amendment 2:39 Ninth Amendment 2:49 Tenth Amendment 1783 America had just won its independence from Great Britain. It was now a new country and it was struggling with the very idea of democracy. The Articles of Confederation, which is known as America's very 1st Constitution were not working, so the founding fathers decided to have a Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Constitutional Convention was originally held to address the problems with the Articles of Confederation. This convention lead to the proposal of the Constitution that we have now. But not everybody felt all warm and fuzzy about this new Constitution. The Federalists believed that the Constitution was a great idea. This group was led by James Madison, John Jay and Alexander Hamilton. While the Anti-Federalists believed that having a new Constitution would be like have a king again and this group was led by George Mason, Patrick Henry and Samuel Adams. A famous quote from Anti- Federalist George Mason was “TO DISARM THE PEOPLE…WAS THE BEST & MOST EFFECTUAL WAY TO ENSLAVE THEM.” The anti-federalists believed that having a Constitution would also limit states' rights. The debates between the federalists and the anti-federalists or the (Federalists Debates) went on long enough. Finally, the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists decided to compromise. Written by James Madison, this document was intended to protect the individual liberties or freedoms of the American people. The 1st Amendment has five parts: freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of petition, freedom to assemble, and freedom of press. The Second Amendment is the Right to Bear Arms. This is perhaps one of the most controversial amendments to the constitution. The Third Amendment is the right to turn away soldiers from housing during combat. "No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law." Now the Third Amendment may sound a bit silly to you these days but during the American Revolution, Soldiers were actually allowed to stay in the home of perfect strangers. The Fourth Amendment, no unreasonable search and seizures. "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." Come back with a warrant! The fifth amendment actually has several parts. One, no double jeopardy. You cannot try someone for the same crime more than once. Two, self-incrimination "I plead the fifth." Three, the right to a fair and speedy trial. Four Miranda rights. "You have a right to remain silent. The sixth amendment actually means you have a right to a speedy and public trial. You can't keep me jail for 20 years without even giving me a trial. I have to know what I'm here for. The seventh amendment means you have a right to a jury. "Um can I have jury in this case please." The Eight Amendment means no excessive bails, no excessive fines, and no cruel and unusual punishment. "I sentence you to life for stealing this piece of gum." The Ninth Amendment means that even if it's not in the constitution, you still have human rights such as education, freedom, equality, and justice. The tenth amendment belongs to the states. Any amendment that is not in the constitution, belongs to the states. The Bill of rights was ratified over 225 years ago.

In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is.

Through Amendment II, you have the right to bear arms In order to be free, do you get the picture? Each state has the right to its own militia AMENDMENT III Number Three says "No soldiers in homes" The government can't just force you to loan Your own private house so their soldiers can sleep Especially not in times of peace AMENDMENT IV The Fourth Amendment is sure to get applause No searches or seizures without probable cause But when there is belief that a crime has been done A warrant can be ordered, then to search someone AMENDMENT V Then on to the Fifth Amendment, no need to tell The government things that might send you to jail You cannot be accused of the same crime twice That would put you in a double jeopardy, it's not right Well, the Constitution took days and nights But the writers still had to go look at it twice 'Cause the states that reviewed it said: Here's some advice It should guarantee freedom, yeah that would be nice So the founders said alright and wrote the Bill of Rights Yup, the first Ten Amendments are the Bill of Rights AMENDMENT VI Number six gives six rights to the accused Like the right to know which law you might have abused It gives the right to a fair and public trial Your own defense counsel, you know there's no denial AMENDMENT VII I'll tell you seven is simple: when trial is civil (Meaning that no one in the dispute is a criminal) You can ask for a jury in these cases too Usually they're over money, somebody wants to sue AMENDMENT VIII For the Eighth Amendment, we compliment our government It won't allow cruel or unusual punishment Face the judge's hammer and end up in the slammer, You won't pay excessive bail in any given manner AMENDMENT IX All the rights that we have, says Amendment Nine Cannot be confined only to these written lines Just because a freedom isn't here on this list The government cannot say it does not exist AMENDMENT X What was meant when the last of the ten was written? Government only has power it is given In order to be equal, Powers not listed in the Constitution shall be given to the People Well, the Constitution took days and nights But the writers still had to go look at it twice 'Cause the states that reviewed it said: Here's some advice It should guarantee freedom, yeah that would be nice So the founders said alright and wrote the Bill of Rights Yup, the first Ten Amendments are the Bill of Rights From the Album: Trip to DC

THE BILL OF RIGHTS - U.S. Constitution - FULL AudioBook | GreatestAudioBooks
 
04:04
THE BILL OF RIGHTS - FULL AudioBook | GreatestAudioBooks - The Bill of Rights is the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution. Proposed following the often bitter 1787–88 battle over ratification of the U.S. Constitution, and crafted to address the objections raised by Anti-Federalists, the Bill of Rights amendments add to the Constitution specific guarantees of personal freedoms and rights, clear limitations on the government's power in judicial and other proceedings, and explicit declarations that all powers not specifically delegated to Congress by the Constitution are reserved for the states or the people. The concepts codified in these amendments are built upon those found in several earlier documents, including the Virginia Declaration of Rights and the English Bill of Rights 1689, along with earlier documents such as Magna Carta (1215). In practice, the amendments had little impact on judgments by the courts for the first 150 years after ratification. On June 8, 1789, Representative James Madison introduced nine amendments to the Constitution in the House of Representatives.

The United States Bill of Rights
 
04:41
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. While originally the amendments applied only to the federal government, most of their provisions have since been applied to the states by way of the Fourteenth Amendment, a process known as incorporation. The Bill of Rights had little judicial impact for the first 150 years of its existence, but was the basis for many Supreme Court decisions of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Why won't you anti-federalist just ratify this Constitution? 1. Well if I sign this, well I know you're gonna be, you're gonna be the one telling me how to pray, And if I sign this, well I know you'll take the right of free speech, and press and petition away, 2. If I sign this, well I know that you will not ,that you will not be able to leave my guns alone, 3. And if I sign this, I know trust you I cannot, I just cannot trust you won't quarter in my home, 'Cause I don't trust your Constitution and I think it needs something more, Like a Bill of Rights to stop the government from trying to take more, 4. If I sign this, yes I know you're gonna search, you're gonna seize me up without probable cause, 5. And if I sign this, you'll make me self-incriminate, or be deprived without the due process of laws, 6. When I sign this (when I sign this), well I know that any trial, that trial I'm in will carry on for years, 7. And if I sign, well I know to say goodbye, to say goodbye to any jury of my peers, 'Cause I don't trust your Constitution and I think it needs something more, Like a Bill of Rights to stop the government from trying to take more, Just sign it! Won't sign it! Just sign it! Won't sign it 'til a Bill of Rights is added to this plan! Just sign it! Won't sign it! Just sign it! Won't sign! Only then I'll approve the Constitution. 8. If I sign this, well I know that you'll be cruel, and unusual if you have to punish me, 9. And if I sign this, well I know you're gonna say, you're gonna say you've listed all my liberties, 10. And when I sign this, well I know you're gonna think, you're gonna think that unclaimed rights belong to you, So I won't sign this, and you'd better go create, go create something that protects us from you, Go create something that protects us from you. 'Cause I don't trust your Constitution and I think it needs something more, Like a Bill of Rights to stop the government from trying to take more, Just sign it! Won't sign it! Just sign it! Won't sign it 'til a Bill of Rights is added to this plan! Just sign it! Won't sign it! Just sign it! Won't sign! Only then I'll approve the Constitution.

The BILL OF RIGHTS Explained [AP Government Explained]
 
08:16
Heimler's Website: www.heimlershistory.com In this video Heimler explains the basics of the first ten amendments to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights. Each of these amendments provide marvelous liberties like the freedom of speech or freedom of religion, but those freedoms must be balanced with other concerns. In this video you'll have civil liberties explained thoroughly. Over time the Supreme Court has had to determine the line between national security and person liberty. And they’ve had to draw boundaries, for example, on the freedom of speech. Even so, the Supreme Court has generally kept the restriction on our liberties to a minimum (or at least attempted to). The Bill of Rights emerged out of an argument between the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists during the Constitutional Convention. Anti-Federalists refused to ratify the Constitution without the inclusion of a Bill of Rights. But the Federalists argued that once you start writing down people’s rights, you’re sure to leave some out, and that can be equally dangerous. And we have certainly seen that danger in the discussions over whether Obamacare is constitutional, and further whether healthcare is a right. And finally we discuss the fourteenth (14th) amendment and how through the process of selective incorporation, the Supreme Court has applied the civil liberties protected in the Bill of Rights to the states. In you’re taking AP Government, then good news: this video aligns with Unit 2 of the AP government curriculum framework. Specifically, it aligns to the unit on Civil Liberties.
