A Constitution Essay

        Greetings and Salutations my fellow Americans. The United States Constitution is the highest law of the United States of America. It was put in writing on September 17, 1787 by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and later put into effect, or ratified, by representatives of the people of the first 13 states. The constitution gives people the rights to become citizens if they aren't already and people have their own opinions on the constitution and amendments.

        Being a citizen means to me is following the rules and laws that are set for us. A good citizen is a person who obeys the laws of his country, contributes to society and participates in public affairs with wisdom. These laws are set in place for us to follow so that our country becomes better and safeter. Good citizenship is closely tied to the concept of civic duty, the idea that citizens have responsibilities they must fulfill with regard to their country. U.S. citizenship is tied into the right to vote.

        Citizenship and the right to vote go together because have the right to vote is a natural right.

 The U.S. Citizenship is tied to the Right to Vote by amendments fourteen, fifteen, nineteen, twenty-fourth and  twenty-sixths.Amendment fourteen states that anyone born in the united states he or she is an united states citizen. Amendment twenty-six states that anyone who is eighteen or older are allowed to vote. Finally the people have their natural right and citizenship which allows them to be able to vote.

People have their own a opinions on the amendments and the constitution and the constitution gives people the right to be U.S. Citizens if they aren’t already.The  citizens of the united states have the right to vote natural while others have to take a citizenship test to become a citizen of the united states to have their vote count in  that state that they are imagrating too.
