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!TAKEN FROM MY OTHER BLOG TOTUS
""Liberty and freedom are precious and must be fought for and many generations of Americans have answered the call and heard the toll of the Liberty Bell. Now is such a time and ask not for "whom does the bell toll". For those on the greens at Lexington and Concord heard the call and saw the approaching danger in the forms of "Brown Bess" and "Redcoat". And when the smoke had cleared the deaf ear of the oppressor was pierced by "the shot heard round the world".""
