One of the 4 or 5 greatest documents in the history of civilization, the US Constitution created and has served for 225 years to strengthen to basic freedoms on which the United Sates of America was founded. George Washington, who presided over the Constitutional Convention, put the importance of the document and its principles this way: "Toward the preservation of your government and the permanency of your present happy state, it is requisite, not only that you steadily discountenance irregular oppositions to its acknowledged authority, but also that you resist with care the spirit of innovation upon its principles, however specious the pretexts. One method of assault may be to effect in the forms of the Constitution alterations which will impair the energy of the system, and thus to undermine what cannot be directly overthrown." To continually water down through constant "innovations"...isn't that what we are dealing with now? The Marxist left constantly sings the about the need to make the Constitution a "living document" and is irrelevant in its current form because it is out of date. Washington told us to be on guard for such tactics over two hundred years ago. It will serve us well right now to heed his warnings.

Happy Constitution Day 2020

from The Gray Area:

Today is Constitution Day. Appropriate to celebrate in every year, but especially this year when the Constitution and the country it defines & protects is in such a crisis.

For reflection, in the slider today are several re-published articles on the Constitution and American politics.

Commit to read the Constitution today and while you are at it read the Declaration of independence, the origin of the Constitution. Then commit yourself to understand and to protect this precious document from all who would re-write or destroy it.
