Constituting America’s Long & Little Known White Paper

Do you believe that the laws passed by Congress today are “so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood,” as James Madison stated in Federalist Paper 62?

At Constituting America, we believe that they are. This is why founder and co-chair Janine Turner has taken action with her TRUTH Act petition, which she walked through the halls of Congress to discuss with members of our U.S. Congress–many of whom agreed with the need for such an act.

Constituting America then partnered with Nathaniel Stewart to publish “Long and Little Known,” a white paper researching the page lengths of landmark pieces of legislation like the Federal Reserve Act and the Social Security Act.

Learn more below by reading both of these documents for yourself. Both of these documents are distributed free of cost to students across the country whenever Janine, or her daughter Juliette, speaks to schools through the George Washington Speaking Initiative. These documents serve as examples of how any American can use their First Amendment right of petitioning to express a grievance or concern they have with the government.
