WE THE PEOPLE

SOON, AND FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES WILL BE READ ALOUD ON THE FLOOR OF THE U.S. HOUSE.  SOME WOULD HAVE YOU BELIEVE THAT THIS IS A TRIVIAL EVENT, BUT THOSE ARE THE ONES WHO HAVE LITTLE USE FOR THAT DOCUMENT AS WRITTEN AND BELIEVE IT TO BE AN ERASABLE BLUE PRINT THAT CAN BE IGNORED AND CHANGED BY A SIMPLE ACT OF CONGRESS OR BY JUDICIAL REVIEW BASED ONLY ON PAST PRECEDENT.  THESE SO-CALLED PROGRESSIVES WOULD NOT TAKE US INTO SOME UTOPIAN FUTURE BUT WOULD, IN FACT, RETURN US TO THE DISTANT PAST.  THEY WOULD RETURN TO THE DAYS BEFORE THE FOUNDERS WROTE THIS GREAT DOCUMENT, TO THE DAYS WHEN "WE THE PEOPLE" WERE CONTROLLED BY A TYRANNY WHO TURNED A DEAF EAR TO THE VOICES OF THE PEOPLE.  "WE THE PEOPLE" HAVE BEEN SILENT FAR TOO LONG AND THE WINDS OF CHANGE ARE BLOWING ACROSS THIS GREAT LAND!

Ron,
It will be a great day. It would not have been possible if great Americans like yourself had not spoken out.

It'll be like throwing holy water at devils.

This was a great day for the citizens of the United States. Thank you for speaking out Ron.

Now, if only Congress would pay attention to the words and the intent of our Constitution!

My American Government class, a course I teach every few years, reads aloud the Constitution in class. We discuss the various sections, too, of course -- from a conservative viewpoint, i.e., strict constructionism. We homeschoolers do tend to be conservatives, you know.

"People", don't let your guard down!
