Default Our legal foundation

I'll start this forum off with where EVERY discussion of the law should begin and end:
The Constitution of the United States of America
U.S. Constitution | LII / Legal Information Institute

Quote:
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

I'd rather see every discussion start and end with the Bill of Rights myself.

Well, yes, but those ten amendments aren't amendments in the sense that they modified the original document, they were an add-on, as it were. Anyhoo, most law and order threads here will involve the Bill of Rights.
