Search function is balky

When I searched for “emoluments” it took quite a while, and then tapping one of the results made it skip to the first page of the book, and the search results vanished.

Awful. Skip It.

Even at $0.00, it’s not worth downloading; a slow, balky user interface wrapped around a crappy PDF doc.

Understand the constitution or lose it

This may be a great app but the real problem is, will anyone use it? Right now people seem to think that everything will continue on the way things are forever, but history isn't over yet. If people continue to demand rights while denying responsibility then the country will degenerate into a 3rd world state. Yes, this is entirely possible. There is no magic protecting anyone here. It has happened to other countries and it will happen to this one sooner rather than later if people don't understand the system of government and are unable or unwilling to hold people accountable.
