The definitions of the word guidelines is an indication or outline of policy or conduct This word has many ways in which it renames the Constitution. First of all, the Constitution sets the laws about how our country shall function. It also gives the "guidelines" on how the court system shall function as outlined within the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th Amendments.

This picture represents "guidelines" very well because the bumpers on the bowling alley guide the ball. In this case the ball represents the goverment, the gutter represents unfair and unlawful treatment of it citizens, and the bumpers represent the Constitution which guides the ball to the pins which represent fair treatment and lawful measures taken by the government.

"... making sure the Constitution guides us in every decision." - Mac Warner

"The United States Constitution has proved itself the most marvelously elastic compilation of rules of government ever written." - Franklin Delano Roosevelt
