On September 17, 1787, the greatest and most unique political and legal document in the history of mankind was signed by 39 brave men, the United States Constitution.
Today, we as patriotic Americans celebrate, honor and promote this time-honored document, the longest standing Constitution in world history, 230 years later, and have made each September 17, Constitution Day.
Our Constitution, signed by patriot heroes at the threat of death, was written both to create the federal government, with certain enumerated powers being delegated by the various states to this new federal government, but, perhaps more importantly in the minds of our Founding Fathers, it was written to limit the power of the federal government.
It is the only document that separates us from tyranny, the type of government tyranny which is the rule and not the exception throughout history.
Those limitations that our brave founders fought and died for, including our military heroes over the many decades since its establishment, are quickly eroding.
We must be as diligent as our founders were in fighting for our freedom, or they will be gone, as human history as proven repeatedly.
As former President Ronald Reagan both accurately and brilliantly warned:
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”
We must make sure it is not our generation. Today would be a great day to pull out your pocket U.S. Constitution, read it, and educate your children and grandchildren as to why it must be restored, then adhered to as written, not interpreted as a “living and breathing document” that can be twisted into meaning whatever power-hungry politician or judge desires it to mean, depending on which way the political winds are blowing.
Patriotic Americans, like famous Hollywood actress Janine Turner, are doing their part to restore our Constitution and we must be equally as diligent.
