The U.S. Constitution. The site even highlights in a red link where amendments have negated portions. These guys were brilliant.

I like this part. It’s the last paragraph in Article II, Section 1:

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:–“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Also interesting – the last paragraph in Article VI:

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

I’m going to read it all more thoroughly, bit by bit, and keep the dictionary handy.
