    Description

    National Best Seller

    Do you really want the crooked baby-kissers and fake news to tell you what your rights are?

    Wouldn’t you rather discover them for yourself?

    The founders fought tirelessly to guarantee these God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    But let’s face it - the Bill of Rights is hard to understand.

    Its text is flowery and puzzling.

    It’s full of legal and political jargon.

    And without the right historical background, it’s impossible to grasp the full meaning, importance, and scope of each of the amendments (and especially the second amendment).

    This book is the shortcut.

    With it, you’ll quickly reach a deep understanding of the Bill of Rights, thanks to precise definitions of key words, crucial historical contexts, and enlightening insights from the founders and their peers.

    So, if you’re:

    • Struggling to comprehend the United States' Bill of Rights...
    • Wondering how it should apply to modern society...
    • And, maybe, even doubting whether it should still be held as inviolable today, 230 years after its writing...

    And if you want to discover what the two-faced corruptocrats and their media lackeys absolutely hate the most about our country and constitution...

    You want to listen to this book today.

    So, click the “buy” button now and learn things most Americans will never know about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    Better than the lessons taught in school!

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Know Your Bill of Rights Book to be better than the print version?

    I only have the audio edition, but with information as dense as the Bill of Rights it was nice to be "told a story" about them rather than having to read and re-read a print version, in my opinion.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Founders, in general, were fascinating to learn more about. Choosing only one, however, James Madison was my favorite to learn about. In my experience, he does not get the spotlight nearly as much as Washington, Adams, or Jefferson, yet he was the one who created the foundation for the Bill of Rights.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the scene's labeled as the stories behind the amendments. While these aren't simply limited to a single scene, they provided a lot of rationale to the amendments and made them easier to digest. Further, they provided context, which makes it easier to apply to what we're seeing in modern day America.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, but it was at the completion and subsequent restarting of the book. After listening to the book the first time and making my way back to the introduction again I felt as though I'd accomplished something. I'll admit that despite being relatively educated I had very little knowledge about the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, or the founding of our country in general. I'd simply retained the amendments themselves on a purely superficial level with no understanding of the concepts, the context, and the rationale behind them, nor did I have any true understanding of the steps that led to their creation. Sadly, I believe that I'm in the majority here and not the minority. As a result, I believe that many of the arguments and frustrations that people are facing today can be solved by becoming better educated about the Bill of Rights, what it means, and just how much care was put into crafting them to best suit the needs of all citizens.

    Any additional comments?

    In short, read the book. I'd guess that I'm in the vast majority of people who, frankly, don't know enough about the Bill of Rights. Do yourself a favor and become educated - don't get your education from CNN, Fox, etc. Take a few hours to read/listen to this book. The information in this book will put you light years ahead of most other American's as it pertains to knowledge about where we've been, where we are, and where we could be going. Thanks, Sean.

    lays it out. does not try to direct your thinking

    Lysander Spooner (1870)

    “Those who are capable of tyranny are capable of perjury to sustain it.”

    “...only those who have the will and the power to shoot down their fellow men, are the real rulers in this, as in all other (so-called) civilized countries; for by no others will civilized men be robbed, or enslaved.”
    ― Lysander Spooner, No Treason: The Constitution of No Authority

    "So these villains, who call themselves governments, well understand that their power rests primarily upon stolen money. With money they can hire soldiers, and with soldiers extort money. And, when their authority is denied, the first use they always make of money, is to hire soldiers to kill or subdue all who refuse them more money." -Lysander Spooner.



    -The payment of taxes, being compulsory, of course furnishes no evidence that any one voluntarily supports the Constitution.

    It is true that the theory of our Constitution is, that all taxes are paid voluntarily; that our government is a mutual insurance company, voluntarily entered into by the people with each other; that each man makes a free and purely voluntary contract with all others who are parties to the Constitution, to pay so much money for so much protection, the same as he does with any other insurance company; and that he is just as free not to be protected, and not to pay any tax, as he is to pay a tax, and be protected.

    But this theory of our government is wholly different from the practical fact. The fact is that the government, like a highwayman, says to a man: Your money, or your life. And many, if not most, taxes are paid under the compulsion of that threat.

    The government does not, indeed, waylay a man in a lonely place, spring upon him from the road side, and, holding a pistol to his head, proceed to rifle his pockets. But the robbery is none the less a robbery on that account; and it is far more dastardly and shameful.




    The highwayman takes solely upon himself the responsibility, danger, and crime of his own act. He does not pretend that he has any rightful claim to your money, or that he intends to use it for your own benefit. He does not pretend to be anything but a robber. He has not acquired impudence enough to profess to be merely a “protector,” and that he takes men’s money against their will, merely to enable him to “protect” those infatuated travellers, who feel perfectly able to protect themselves, or do not appreciate his peculiar system of protection. He is too sensible a man to make such professions as these. Furthermore, having taken your money, he leaves you, as you wish him to do. He does not persist in following you on the road, against your will; assuming to be your rightful “sovereign,” on account of the “protection” he affords you. He does not keep “protecting” you, by commanding you to bow down and serve him; by requiring you to do this, and forbidding you to do that; by robbing you of more money as often as he finds it for his interest or pleasure to do so; and by branding you as a rebel, a traitor, and an enemy to your country, and shooting you down without mercy, if you dispute his authority, or resist his demands. He is too much of a gentleman to be guilty of such impostures, and insults, and villanies as these. In short, he does not, in addition to robbing you, attempt to make you either his dupe or his slave.

    The proceedings of those robbers and murderers, who call themselves “the government,” are directly the opposite of these of the single highwayman.




    In the first place, they do not, like him, make themselves individually known; or, consequently, take upon themselves personally the responsibility of their acts. On the contrary, they secretly (by secret ballot) designate some one of their number to commit the robbery in their behalf, while they keep themselves practically concealed. They say to the person thus designated:

    Go to A— B—, and say to him that “the government” has need of money to meet the expenses of protecting him and his property. If he presumes to say that he has never contracted with us to protect him, and that he wants none of our protection, say to him that that is our business, and not his; that we choose to protect him, whether he desires us to do so or not; and that we demand pay, too, for protecting him. If he dares to inquire who the individuals are, who have thus taken upon themselves the title of “the government,” and who assume to protect him, and demand payment of him, without his having ever made any contract with them, say to him that that, too, is our business, and not his; that we do not choose to make ourselves individually known to him; that we have secretly (by secret ballot) appointed you our agent to give him notice of our demands, and, if he complies with them, to give him, in our name, a receipt that will protect him against any similar demand for the present year. If he refuses to comply, seize and sell enough of his property to pay not only our demands, but all your own expenses and trouble beside.




    If he resists the seizure of his property, call upon the bystanders to help you (doubtless some of them will prove to be members of our band). If, in defending his property, he should kill any of our band who are assisting you, capture him at all hazards; charge him (in one of our courts) with murder, convict him, and hang him. If he should call upon his neighbors, or any others who, like him, may be disposed to resist our demands, and they should come in large numbers to his assistance, cry out that they are all rebels and traitors; that “our country” is in danger; call upon the commander of our hired murderers; tell him to quell the rebellion and “save the country,” cost what it may. Tell him to kill all who resist, though they should be hundreds of thousands; and thus strike terror into all others similarly disposed. See that the work of murder is thoroughly done, that we may have no further trouble of this kind hereafter. When these traitors shall have thus been taught our strength and our determination, they will be good loyal citizens for many years, and pay their taxes without a why or a wherefore.

    It is under such compulsion as this that taxes, so called, are paid. And how much proof the payment of taxes affords, that the people consent to support “the government,” it needs no further argument to show.

    Good Historical Background

    This is a good book but it focuses a lot on the history of and factors that went into the framing of the Bill of Rights. I really wanted more information on how the document applies to current American life, politics, and jurisprudence.

    Do you care about the Bill of Rights?

    Every one that cares about the Bill of Rights needs to listen to this book. The author reads each Bill of Right and then tells the story about that particular Right. The story consists of why that particular Right was added to the Bill of Rights. He also includes where the writers of the Bill of Rights got the concepts from.

    Every American should read/listen to this book...

    I really enjoyed listening to this. It makes me want to learn more about our founding fathers and the steps they took to preserve the rights we all enjoy to this day. Educate yourselves. You’d never regret it!

    Utopian Indoctrination.

    I listened all the way through the end credits, rewinding often. . The ideas are eloquent. A purists solution for the madness of a well honed Democratic Republic. "If we can keep it." Blatantly clear disconnected idealism only. When used as a ( cause to an end ) handbook; the actual application, even sparadically, sings the March of our Failed Republic.

    Governing Documents and how they intertwined

    Excellent. I should have studied this in school, but school was so long ago that I should probably listen again. It was a great story, but more a tool to understand our history and about our governing documents.

    This is a must read! For anybody calling themselves a patriot.

    This book, was thought-provoking, captivating, and again, I must read for anybody calling themselves a patriot. It was presented well. I could understand every single word. I was really impressed that every word in the glossary was also an audio file. I really appreciate that.

    Additionally, I also like how the author wrote this book in such a way that anybody would understand. Again, this is a must read for any American calling themselves a patriot.

    This book is also going for somebody, that wants to have a future in a clinical figurehead type position. As it is one of the cornerstones to understanding the American Constitution and the way the United States laws are written and interpreted.

    I myself, I am ashamed that I did not know this. I am really happy that I bought this book. Very informative and interesting enough to read paren
