The US Constitution was the first such document in human history and was not created until 1787. Most free and many not so free nations have similar documents today to guide the government and protect the rights of the people.
Most citizens of the world have benefited from the independence and the subsequent creation of the Constitution of the United States. It is my belief, along with most of the builders of this country, the signers of the Declaration of Independence and the framers of the Constitution of the United States, that all this was done under the watchful guidance and direction of a loving God. That is one of the many reasons that the motto of the United States is "In God We Trust".
