ABSTRACT
This article presents an interpretation of the U.S. Constitution. These days, the people believe that the protection of the Constitution is in the hands of the Supreme Court. Political leaders against the passage of a campaign-finance bill are arguing that President George W. Bush should veto it because it is unconstitutional. Anyone who considers a bill unconstitutional should vote against it. Conservatives want that the Congress should pass restrictions on abortion laws which will be struck down by the courts. Conservatives are trying to ban partial-birth abortion because they know they have the constitutional right to do so. Former President George Washington had used the Constitution in this way when he vetoed a bill which was incompatible with it.
