US Politics Example Essay: discuss the view that the US Constitution is inflexible

Ruth Tarrant

12th May 2016

Nearly every country in the world has a constitution which outlines the political process of governance in that country. The US Constitution is the world’s oldest codified constitution (written 1789) that is still in existence. Codified constitutions are often regarded as beneficial for effective governance because they allow stability (no easy-to-change constitutional statute law, for example) and are also the fundamental law of the country.
