May 15, 2018

What is the relationship between the Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights? This question and more are answered in this episode of Constitutional Soundbites.

In this episode of The Heartland Institute’s Constitutional Soundbites series, David Shestokas, Chris Talgo and Lindsey Stroud discuss “Thoughts on the Declaration of Independence, Volume Three” from Shestokas’ book Constitutional Soundbites. The three debate Thomas Jefferson’s role in the Declaration of Independence, the relationship between the Declaration to the Bill of Rights, and how the Bill of Rights is related to the colonists’ complaints against King George.
