The American constitution is the best piece of legislation in the world because it began with three simple words, “We The People”. The difference is so small and yet so profound. In most country's constitutions around the world the people's rights are defined and given by the government. But in our constitution it’s “We the people” tell the government what it is allowed to do and they can do only those things, we the people can stay free.
In the United States, the government’s job is to protect our inalienable rights, because our rights came from God and not from the government.
