Overview

No matter who you identify with—Democrat or Republican, Tea Party or Green Party, Independent or something else altogether— we the people should read: 

• The Constitution of the United States of America 
• The Bill of Rights and all of the Amendments
• The Declaration of Independence
• The Articles of Confederation

Take a moment or two to reflect on the words of our forefathers, as these are the documents literally created America. The Constitution set up a system of government that remains centuries later. The eloquent words of The Declaration of Independence are an enduring statement of human rights. Written and signed by Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and other great lights of our historical past, these documents define our freedoms and promise us our futures. And while they are often quoted, they are seldom actually read. Here is an opportunity to reach a new audience, with a fresh design and the same inspiring words. This collection will be a welcome addition to any American who believes in the dream.

I can't review this because , although I ordered it a month ago (Nov. 22), I still haven't received it. I also ordered "Killing Lincoln" Which I haven't received.
