Editor for the Day: TheCureForYouthMinistry features The Constitution

Posted: 04 Jul 2013 05:18 AM PDT

cueforAmerica’s greatest document is the Constitution. The Constitution is the basis of all other documents. and we know so little of it. Why? Is it because we do not care? No, I think, to be honest, it’s because we are all a little lazy.

Here’s your chance to prove me wring. I have collected nine pretty good lenses that break down the constitution and it various parts, and one really good We The People t-shirt lens to reward yourself for reading the other nine.These lenses will take your level of knowledge and interest in the Constitution to the next level. Enjoy your freedom(s). ~ TheCureForYouthMinistry
