Daily Bites of the Constitution of the United States
Reads From the Constitution in the Department of State's: 


We the People of the United States in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America. Article 1 legislative department: Section 1” Congress legislative powers vested: All legislative powers herein granted (by the people) shall be vested in a congress of the United States which shall consist of a senate and a house of representatives (for the people)


United States Constitution : Bill of Rights
Amendments to the Constitution 1791 reference:
 American History Textbook: 

Reuben Halleck, taught in Public Schools across America in the 50s” 

Continued on to Amendments 15-19

Amendment 15-19 Amendment 15 Negro Suffrage:

 The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied of abridged by the United States on account of race, color or previous conditions of servitude. 

Section 2: The congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Amendment 16: Income Tax: 

The congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes from whatever sources derived without apportion among the several States and without regard to any census or enumeration. Adopted in 1913. 

Amendment 17 Election of Senators:

 Amending Article 1 section 3 clause 1 and 2. The senate of the United States shall be composed of two senators from each State elected by the people thereof for all six years and each senator shall have one vote. The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legislature. when vacancies happen in the representation of any State in the senate the executive authority of such state shall issue writs of election to fill such vacancies provided that the legislature of any State may empower the executive thereof to make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by direction as the legislature may direct.

 This amendment may not be so construed as to affect the elections or terms of any senators chosen before it becomes valid as part of the Constitution.

 (to be continued Amendments 18 and 19 ehich will be the end of History text school book 1926)

which,,,made a mistake and can't edit the word.

Pearls Notes:

I wondered about Amendment 16 latter part. Congress has power to collect tax without apportion among several States from whatever source and without census or enumeration (dictionary says enumeration means to belittle) Here is my question...Is this not in complete opposition of Bill of Rights Amendment 10? Whatsoever is not specified in the Constitution is left to the people of the States. Now this Amendment 16 same as says congress can collect tax from any source whatsoever and people or states have no say? I remember my grandmother and my mother talking about how unfair this new tax is when I was a child which was in the 50s.
