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!
