The U.S. Constitution is still the law of the land
“It's a free country,” as the saying goes. We as Americans have been brought up to believe this. Our Founding Fathers even put it in writing. We say it without giving it much thought. It's cliché. If we were forced to answer this question honestly, could we really answer in the affirmative?
