    I'm sure most everyone in this forum group has read the Constitution at one time or another.
    But, just reading it may not equate to actually KNOWING it.
    So, I have come up with an exercise to see who those are that actually know the ORIGINAL document and what it is all about.
    Now, for the purpose of this exercise, we will be dealing with JUST the original document and the SEVEN articles of the original document that were written into law.
    The Bill of Rights (first ten amendments to the Constitution) as well as all the rest of the later amendments will not be part of this exercise.

    So, my challenge to this group...

    Read each article (there are seven) of the original document and sum up IN ONE WORD what each of the seven articles pertains to.

    As Lennon once stated, "It's easy if you try".

    I anxiously wait for your answers.

    (Note: Article VI is three paragraphs and, in my opinion, each paragraph could be an article within themselves. But, what is the MAIN point in the VI article as it applies to the Constitution and America as a whole.)
