Review the Constitution in Appendix A and  choose one of the  following sections of the U.S. Constitution or a specified amendment to  use as the basis for your initial response:

  • Any of Congress’s enumerated powers under Article I, Section 8
  • 1st Amendment
  • 4th Amendment
  • 5th Amendment
  • 14th Amendment

Identify the section of the Constitution or its amendment that you  have chosen. Discuss how this section of the Constitution or its  amendments both limit and protect business in general.  Describe an example of how the section of the Constitution or its  amendment that you have chosen could be applied to your professional  life (past, present, or future). In your example, discuss whether the  section of the Constitution you have chosen to address limits business  or protects it.

Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your  fellow students’ posts in a substantive manner. Some ways to do this  include the following, though you may choose a different approach,  providing your response is substantive:

Review the initial posts made by your peers, and note whether the  responses relied upon a different section of the Constitution or  amendment than your response.

If your peer chose to focus on a different section of the  Constitution or amendment than you did, discuss how that section of the  Constitution relates to any example of a business situation from your  professional life (past, present, or future).

If your peer chose to focus on the same section of the Constitution  or amendment that you did, then compare and contrast the different  applications of that section of the amendment to your respective  examples from your own professional lives.

Suggest analytical differences that could lead to different outcomes.  Point out ways in which the Constitution or its amendments might limit  or protect business that your peer did not already identify.


Under the enumerated powers under Article 1, Section 8, creating post  offices and roads was put in place many years ago to allow individuals  to communicate with each other because they had no telephones or radios.  Not to mention that they were hardly any post offices in the late  1700’s and they were far away from each other, which is why congress  established roads and more post offices on where mail was to be  delivered. The postal clause protects businesses by way of not having  confidential information shared with outsiders, which means the  information that is used to send and receive documents can’t be shared  or sold to other businesses. However, when it comes to delivering  packages, congress gave post offices power to charge them for delivering  and a company cannot contest the price.

The postal power protects me by way of not having to worry about mail  carriers or workers opening my mail before I receive it because it is  an invasion of privacy. “Law comprises rules of behavior that a  government imposes on its people for the benefit of society as a whole.  As such, it represents the governing body’s subjective views of what is  best for that society” (Seaquist, 2012, p. 1.1).  Anybody who steals  mail or opens it will face a fine, criminal conviction and even go to  jail. It also gives me the right to deliver and send documents almost  anywhere in the world where postal grounds are established, which grants  businesses the power to expand their profits; especially if they are in  a foreign land or another part of the country.

I have chosen to discuss the 1st  Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which states “Congress shall make  no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free  exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press;  or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the  Government for a redress of grievances” (Seaquist, 2012, Appendix A). It  is important to note that all speech is not technically free or  protected. There are several ways that the amendment limits and protects  in business. It limits business by addressing the fact that they cannot  libel or slander anyone, defame, use obscene language to anyone and  expect to be protected. The amendment enforces the rule that they cannot  impose a certain religion on their employees. Protections include that  of commercial speech that allows companies to advertising, public  policy, and most things that affect humans such as global warming.  Businesses have the opportunity to support political parties and  candidates as this is known to be their way of speaking for who they are  in favor of.

            This amendment can be applied to my personal life by  continuing to allow me to exercise my religion and not be hindered in  that area. It also allows me to participate in those things that I am  passionate about that involve peaceful protests and general freedom of  speech. I feel that this would protect business. We all have the  opportunity to speak on certain things that we are passionate about and  not intentionally offend anyone. This should not affect business  practices, however, some customers may not agree and fail to support the  business if they find out the views are not the same.
