The US Constitution is a document that lays out the bylaws and principle this great nation was founded on. It also defines the structure of our government, including all kinds of procedures for passing and enforcing laws, powers and limits of the different branches of the government, and even explains how the Constitution itself can be changed when that is necessary. There have been 27 amendments to the Constitution so far. It is in effect, the proclamation by which The People literally founded The United States of America.
