Politics is referred to as a science, so here goes:

The Constitution proves that there is some good in the world, but also proves that the more good something is, the more it is attacked, and so the more it needs to be protected. As Samwise said, "There is still some good in the world, and it's worth fighting for." Where America went wrong was when Washington stopped fighting for the good, and starting fighting for the wealth: the dog with the bone in it's mouth who saw his reflection in the water, and lost what he had by trying to snatch illusions. Now the bone is gone, the dog is treading water in greater and greater exhaustion, and the memory of 'the good' is becoming fiction, and in the next generation or two, myth.

But deep underground on Constitution Avenue, encased in argon, still exists on a parchment, the antidote for this terminal condition. Perhaps the more of us that know what it says, the more possibility that it's wisdom may be rediscovered and hooked back inline to our failing political system.

This tool starts out with a quiz so you can determine how knowledgeable you are on the basic tenets of the Constitution. This is a free, but quite detailed course complete with daily pre-recorded lectures. So now, whenever a Republicrat or a Demopublican violates a Constitutional tenet, you'll spot it. The last thing an authoritarian leadership wants is a knowledgeable citizenry.
