The Constitution, shouldn't we all know it?
Sad to say…I felt a bit like Barney Fife when driving in the car with my husband and our conversation turned to the Constitution…I know it I proudly declared…then stumbled…bumbled and went blank…I laughed to cover my embarrassment...and I hate it when Mr. I Know Everything one ups me…however I had to surrender to temporary defeat…and oh how I love the internet….I found this and want to share this resource with you.
It is from Rush Limbaughs Site….which is an entertaining and informative site to wander around.

It does not matter what your party affiliation is…The fundamental information our nation was founded on is arresting.
How many of you will identify with Barney Fife….Watch this and test yourself.
