Help A Student Out

Now that I’m back into the swing of things, I need some help.  My history professor has asked us to ask you some questions.  Don’t worry, they are like survey questions, just answer in the comments section for me.  Thanks

(1) Why should we celebrate the Fourth of July?

(2) What is the difference between the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution?

(3) Why was the United States Constitution written, and what is its purpose?

(4) What can you say about the people who wrote the Constitution?

(5) Approximately when was the Constitution written, and where?

(6) What does the Constitution have to say about separation of church and state and freedom of speech?

(7) Name at least two rights or freedoms given to us by the Constitution.

(8) Have you read the Constitution? Why or why not?

(9) Do you believe a knowledge of what the Constitution says is important? Why or why not?

    1. Pride in nation instills loyalty to nation.
    2. Declaration was when we formally broke away from English rule. Constitution outlines our rights as citizens, states, and nation.
    3. Holy crap. Same as above? Written word is far more powerful than spoken.
    4. They were amazing intellects with incredible foresight into challenges a nation could face, both as a new country and future challenges. They believed in liberty and the rights of people to live without church and government interference. Interesting that they didn’t consider the rights of slaves at the same time.
    5. Holy crap again. Not sure when it was written… Philadelphia?
    6. Church shouldn’t influence government, just as government can’t interfere with the worship rights of churches. Freedom of speech is great, as long as it’s not slanderous, libelous, defame character, etc.
    7. Pursuit of happiness, free speech, bear arms.
    8. Not completely. should.
    9. Of course it’s important and now I’m ashamed for not having read it completely! It’s especially important NOW as we see today’s government stripping away our freedoms in the name of “anti terror” efforts.
