  • I do. I joined the military yrs ago to defend my country and the ideals it represents - which is the constitution. I feel it's important to know what those ideals and rights are, especially if I was going to defend them.

    I'm no longer in the military, but my dh still is. Plus, even if I had never served, I think we have an obligation to know what our rights, and, therefore, what our responsibilities are as citizens of this country. (Or, for that matter, any citizen of any country - you should know what your rights are, what your obligations are, and what, if anything, you can do to change it for whatever country you're a citizen of.)

  • I pretty much took them for granted until the recent problem of Obama's people spending millions to block having his birth certificate revealed. At that point, I thought I had better really read it and quit expecting that the media was going to report truthfully when a news story had to do with any of the Constitutional sections ... guns, privacy, religion, speech, the ACTUAL LEGITIMATE powers of the government, etc.
