Starting a new country? Have we got a deal for you!

One Constitution, slightly used, is now available for purchase. Written just over 200 years ago, this document lays out the rights of government and citizens, with a focus on individual freedom and autonomy for your country’s citizens. This highly-regarded document has been praised by many — this is your chance to get it at a bargain price!

Now, you may be wondering — if this thing is so great, how come you’re selling it? Good question! For the past couple years, we’ve found that the preservation of civil liberties as outlined in this document is just too much of a bother. Some citizens understand and value these freedoms, but most are quick to give them away when faced with fear, whether real or imagined. (Did we say “real or imagined”? They’re real… really they are… boo! See? Scared you!)

If the Constitution is out of your price range, you may be interested in purchasing a member of Congress. We have many for sale and financing is available with your good credit. Collect a whole set and you can pass your own laws!
