Bill of Rights: Introduction

The Bill of Rights were originally intended only to apply to the federal government, but as time passed, partially through the Equal Protection Clause in the 14th Amendment, and partially through the incorporation of the Bill of Rights to the States by the courts, the original intent has changed.  Is that constitutional?  Is there a danger present in changing the authorities of the Bill of Rights?  Listen for the answer.

Join Douglas V. Gibbs of Political Pistachio as he journeys through the United States Constitution. We study the concepts, principles, and direct text of the U.S. Constitution from the original point of view of the Founding Fathers.

New episodes each Sunday Morning at 9:00 am Pacific Time. Go to Constitution Study Radio for all podcasts of past episodes.
