What does On Constitution mean to me?

What Constitution means to me is making laws, enforcing, and interrupting laws. The government has a lot to do with the constitution and how the constitution functions. Having to do with the states and how many representatives their are for each state, also the amendments. The way the President runs things and does things. The way the constitution does things and how they run things effect us every day.
