This past September 17, we commemorated the 229th anniversary of the United States Constitution. I wouldn’t be surprised if you heard very little about the day.
It’s a shame as it celebrated the most important document in our nation’s history.
The Constitution establishes the balance of power between our three branches of government. It delineates the rights that we as Americans hold sacred. And it’s the blueprint on which we’ve based over two centuries of successful democratic governance.
Unfortunately, too few of our public leaders give the Constitution the respect it deserves. They either ignore it, or worse yet, ascribe to the Constitution certain rights and privileges that were never intended.
Some judges are guilty of this. So too are some members of Congress. But the worst offender may be President Obama, who has expanded the power of the presidency by resorting to unprecedented unilateral action.
Americans should see this election as an opportunity to restore the balance of power and respect for fundamental rights that our Constitution so elegantly established.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/284978190″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /] Read More »
