The virtual amusement park for people who love the US CONSTITUTION!

Original Intent Land

What Were They Thinking?!


Welcome to Constitutionland's salute to the men and women who created and continue to create the law.  Original Intent Land  is a world where we celebrate this famous jurisprudence that looks into  the minds of the draftsmen of laws, whether it's the founding fathers  who wrote the Constitution, the first federal congress which drafted the  bill of rights or any future congress of the United States. 

Start  your visit at the CONSTITUTIONAL RE-CONVENTION...a place where you can  revisit the original Constitution and act as a founding father or mother  by making proposals and amendments of your own.  Next, visit IT'S A WONDERFUL CONSTITUTION, a journey that looks at what America would have been like had the US Constitution never been created. 

The  jurisprudence of Original Intent would not be possible without the  sources.  THE ORIGINAL InTENT is our collection of the primary source  material that archivists and legal historians pour through in order to  delve into the minds of the draftsmen.  Follow along as the Official  Librarian takes you on a journey where he explains how the sources are  used.  As an attachment to the Original InTent, jump on the primary  source river with some FUN WITH MAX excursion  with the  great archivist of the records of the federal convention.  Perhaps you  are a fan of old English Common Law.  Well, just outside the Original  InTENT is YE MERRY OLDE ENGLISH LEGAL HISTORY...a Dickensian Village where you can get lost in a pub and a volume of William Blackstone.

If  you like the Great Dissenters Ride in the World of Injustice, you will  love the GREAT ORATORS RIDE.  Come along and meet some of the  greatest advocates to argue before the Supreme Court throughout  history.  Are you a thrill-seeker?  If so, Original Intent Land  has some of the most fun rides in all of Constitutionland.  Spend your  afternoon at REVOLUTIONARY AMUSEMENTS and  relive the Boston Tea Party  with a spin on the Boston Tea Cup Ride or jump on a rollicking ride  through the Boston countryside with America's favorite silversmith on the Midnight Ride of Paul Revere. 

If  you would like a bite to eat, go no further than the STATUTORY  INTERPRETATION DINER...a 1950s inspired greasy spoon that focuses on the  numerous ways statutes are analyzed.

It's a Wonderful Constitution

What if the Constitution were never written? What if while they were sitting in that steaming hot Pennsylvania State House in Philadelphia in May of 1787, some founding father acted like a jackass and scuttled the whole damn thing (just pretend our twenty-first century leaders were there)? Well, if you like imagining wacky things about famous political conventions, then this ride is for you!
