The Living Constitution Worksheet Answers, is the ultimate workbook to help you be a constitutional lawyer. Although this book is available online, I want to share some of the information that I found while writing my review. After reading through it I think I have found a great resource for all future constitutional lawyers.
The Living Constitution Worksheet Answers is the third book I’ve bought from John DeCamp and this time it was on the Constitution. I wasn’t sure what to expect, as I knew he is a controversial figure due to his opinions on the death penalty and the disappearance of babies in Mexico and his testimony before congress. The Living Constitution is not just a one-time purchase, but a great source of information for anyone who wants to become a lawyer.
This book is written by John DeCamp, and I can say that the content is good but not perfect. There are things about the Constitution that do not make sense to me, like when he states that the president can pardon himself, and when he states that our government is not the president’s. The first thing that bothers me about this book is that he states that the president is not a citizen. I understand that it’s a technical point, but it does not mean that we should lower ourselves to the level of barbarism and destruction that America has been committing in the name of democracy, etc.
I also do not understand how a founding father would classify the United States as a monarchy. Maybe John DeCamp is a historian, but I think if someone was to meet the founding fathers and ask them what they consider a monarchy to be, I’m certain that many would give different answers. If he wanted to educate himself about the founding fathers, I believe that he could find many books by them, or ask around in libraries to find individuals willing to go on the record with their views.
Most of what he has stated is already known and has been tested in evidence shows in courts across the country. His belief that the president may pardon himself or a close relative is absurd, and completely disregards the U.S. Constitution. Anyone with even a minimal understanding of the Constitution knows that it gives the power to the Senate, not the president.
Some of the information in this book is well researched, but I don’t know if he is referring to the same Paul Freiberger, as he has references to his other work and it reads very similar. His discussion of the government being corrupt will be debated by anyone, especially by those who follow the news. He states that the Constitution is a fraud, and I do not think that he realizes that we have a document which is alive and will continue to survive until all of the corrupt governments are no more. This book would only confuse us and make us stop looking for a way out.
In conclusion, I do agree with some of the points in the book, and in fact, I believe that what he is saying about the Constitution will never be questioned or denied. However, I do not understand the logic behind his argument that our government does not work. Sure, he says that the government is corrupt, but our government is based on the consent of the governed. We are told to accept it and we try to solve our problems, and in some cases we fail and come up with solutions that are not accepted by our government, but we need to continue trying.
I found the Living Constitution Worksheet Answers to be an excellent way to educate myself and have the knowledge I need to help build a better world. I found some of the material was outdated and that it did not answer all of the questions I had for the government, or the constitution. I look forward to the next edition and hope that the questions we are still having about the federal government will be answered.
