Today marks the 226th birthday of our Constitution. It is the single most important document in world history. This was the first document to be restrictive of what the government could do, and changed the face of the earth.
We became the first nation that gave the power to the people as a whole, and not an all powerful central government. It went so far as to enumerate what the government could do, and guaranteed that everything not mentioned was given to the people or the states.
I would ask that all of you take the time to read the U.S. Constitution this day, and recommit yourself to its preservation.
There are many in our nation’s capital as supposed leaders that believe the document is out of date, or some relic that no longer applies. These men and women are statists and wish to have the power themselves. It is time that we fully understand the rights in our Constitution and ensure that we are protecting them.
We must be the enforcers of the limits the Constitution imposes on government. We can no longer sit idly by and allow the government to disobey the oath to preserve and protect that document.
The National Archives website has a copy you can read if you don’t own one. Please take the time to read it. Especially today.
