What is the favorite part of your country's constitution?Does your country have a written constitution? Is it expandable? Can it be revised? Should it be revised? What's the best way do you think it should be revised? Should it be easier? Harder?

If you haven't read the US Constitution recently, here is an easy peasy link to refresh your memory:
http://topics.law.cornell.edu/constitution/overview
http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution.html


If you want to boast about your own country's constitution or lack thereof ... please leave a link here to it so we can compare each other's legal foundation document.

The 2nd Amendment is the best,
followed by the 9th, 10th and the 14th.

I fell in love at first sight
with The 2nd Amendment, when I was 9 years old.

as a canadian, i can't think of a favourite part of the Constitution of Canada and it's accompanying Charter of Rights and Freedoms

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constitution_Act,_1982

what i like best about it is, outside of the usual whining from Quebec and the Prairie provinces, most people never mention it, at least in polite society

@djjd62,
DJ, when if ever was the last time you have ever read the whole document? Is it a great deal of the government studies of the average Canadian student.

@tsarstepan,
the most recent incarnation was ratified after i was done school, we never really study the government in a manner i believe the US schools do or did, we study the history of Canada, it's various constitution like devices and how the government works, but as part of history more than any kind indoctrination

as for the latest constitution and charter, i read through it when it was ratified about 30 years ago, but haven't really thought about it since

This is the Canadian Constitution of Rights and Freedoms.

To echo Dj, no, students don't study this per se, but it is referenced at times, especially if certain issues arise or as a comparison to a world or historical issue.

@Ceili,
Thanks Ceili and Dj.

Now I wonder if Australia has their own Constitution or is there a commonality between the commonwealths.

Article 8 of the Italian constitution states that all religions are equal while article 7 of the constitution states that the catholic church is more equal than other religions. For the most part, the trains in Italy run on time, religiously, as all clocks are set by the local parish and adjusted as needed.
