“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
USA – This year has not necessarily been a good one for the Constitution of the United States. Then again, maybe 2020 will be the year we rededicate ourselves, as a nation, to the principles of limited government and individual rights outlined therein. Sometimes it takes a cataclysm.
Either way, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights has not faced an orchestrated attack quite like that from overreaching lockdown policies on the tame end, and outright Marxian revolutionary movements on the other. Indeed, the Constitution, and the American idea itself, has been smeared as racist; the Bill of Rights has been deemed a nuisance to the collective good as viewed by elected leaders so benevolent in their anti-liberty dictates.
As such, it is imperative that conservatives work hard to conserve Constitutional principles so they do not fully succumb to the wounds endured from Woke Mobs and apathy.
An excellent source for refreshing your constitutional history and having the background to discuss with kids is ConstitutionDay.com:
On September 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had created. We encourage all Americans to observe this important day in our nation’s history by attending local events in your area. Celebrate Constitution Day through activities, learning, parades and demonstrations of our Love for the United State of America and the Blessings of Freedom Our Founding Fathers secured for us.
The site provides the U.S. Constitution text in its entirety; The Bill of Rights and other amendments; and, provides historical and biographical information on our Founding Fathers (three of which were signers from North Carolina).
In this era of cultural tumult, political tensions, and overreaching government officials embracing collectivism in direct contravention of these Constitutional principles, it is more important than ever to understand, appreciate, and teach about our founding. There is no better day to renew that effort than September 17, Constitution Day.
