The Constitution – Plain and Simple


Curtis W. Caine, Sr., M.D. explains the Constitution of the United States in this 34-article series published in the Medical Sentinel

The Constitution of these American States United is their simple, plainly-worded founding charter. It is the supreme Law of the Land. Every act of every citizen (in and out of government), every statute of Congress, every “advice and consent” of the Senate, every word and deed of the Chief Executive and his agencies, and every decision of the Judiciary must conform to, be authorized by, and be within the boundaries of the Constitution. The Constitution is to be read, studied, understood, obeyed, and supported; not interpreted.

There are numerous commentaries on the Constitution, but the most accurate knowledge of this document is gained by simply reading it — and this column will attempt to guide us to that end.
