My View on the U.S. Constitution

             Constitution is the foundation of the United States without it we have no rules and regulations to live by, nothing to stem laws from. I feel that the U.S. Constitution is very important to anyone one who lives in the United States or who has come to live in the United States to understand. I do not think that this is the case, simply because, it is not something that to everyone is common knowledge. I feel that the U.S. Constitution is not written in a manner that everyone can understand it. I believe for something of such great proportion and meaning should be easily attainable, understood and explained.
             "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.".
             This is how the U.S. Constitution begins. These things written above, I do not believe have been fulfilled in their entirety. I do not feel that they will be able to be filled completely because the United States then, is not the United States now. In 1790, when the U.S. Constitution became fully operational, the population then compared to now was extremely lower. To me that makes it seem utterly impossible to use a document that was ratified by not fifty states (that didn't all even technically exist) but only nine. The difference in the population in itself seems reason enough to revise and-or reconsider our Constitution.
             I found a very interesting site that provided me with very extensive information about the U.S. Constitution. It contained a section for questions and answers relating to the Constitution, one question that caught my eye were, "From what classes or society were the members of the Constitutional Convention drawn?" The answer that was given to this question was, "In addition to lawyers, there were soldiers, planters, educators, ministers, physicians, financiers and merchants.
