Ben Carson, MD - A More Perfect Union - Presidential Candidate 2016

Source:  Jefferson County Public Library
Excerpt from the book:
I wrote this book to encourage every citizen to read and think about the Constitution, and to help defend it from those who misinterpret and undermine it.  In our age of political correctness it's especially important to defend the Bill of Rights, which guarantees our freedom to speak, bear arms, practice our religion, and much more.  The Constitution isn't history-it's about your life in America today.  And defending it is about what kind of country our children and grandchildren will inherit.
