A forum for discussing the meaning of the United States Constitution for our political process.

I am concerned about the direction of the United States economy and politics, and about our declining influence in the world. I feel we are losing our moral and ethical bearings.

Akhil Amar Interview

The National Constitution Center recently interviewed Akhil Amar, the author of The Constitution: A Biography. Professor Amar fielded questions from high school groups. There were excellent questions about whether small states or large states won; how the slaveowners and the South in general won big time because of the 3/5 rule; how close the Constitution came to being not ratified; and more. This is a great resource. You can also subscribe to Constitutional Conversations.

Listen to the Akhil Amar interview.
