...Constitution" is an article by Stephen Moore that criticizes the way Congress appropriates federal funds. His main point is that, though the Constitution empowered Congress to allocate or spend government funds, these powers are only limited and is very specific. And at present, the way Congress spends federal funds, it is going beyond the powers that the Constitution vested it. In the article of Moore, he claimed that in the earlier days, the federal government only had limited funds and only a number of things to spend on.

As seen in the compilation of Taylor, the amendment of the US constitution is controlled by five judges of the Supreme Court that act autonomously and are not influenced by the politics going on in the country (1). This means that these justices determine what will be passed and what will not. The author continues to argue that instead of changing the constitution, the justices force the country to change their behaviours to fit the expected norms of the society as opposed to altering the vital document (Taylor 1).The influential court has not only made...

Thus the British constitution can be contrasted with other constitutions like the Constitution of the United States of America.
