As Constitution Week comes to a close, we must face the reality of where our nation stands today and how significantly endangered the people's rights stand as a result of big government.
Article VI declares the Constitution the supreme law of the land. It makes the Founding Fathers' ideas into an officially recognized and dependable document.
This week, we've covered the Founding Fathers, the seven articles of the Constitution, James Madison, and the Bill of Rights, which you can find below. But at the root of all constitutional ideas is today's threat – government that doesn't respect and follow its own Constitution.
To this day, the rights and laws of our nation are all based on the supreme law of the land, however, there has come a point where sticking to the Founders' written words has become subjective.
Instead of interpreting the Constitution in its original intent, politicians would like to interpret it as a 'living' Constitution, one that evolves with the times. This convenient viewpoint has led to the government slowly but surely infringing on our rights.
Education is key if We the People want to maintain our liberties and God-given rights. An educated population can fight back against government abuses with wisdom and knowledge. An uneducated population – a faction of Americans today – allows the government to overstep its bounds because there's no realization when rights are restricted.
History proves that knowledge wins, which is likely why Constitution Week goes unnoticed by the majority of Americans. We must change course and maintain our strong founding document before it's overshadowed and dismissed.
Article V was written to help maintain an independent nation free from government abuses as well. A Convention of States will certainly cause government officials to abide by their oath to the Constitution, ultimately allowing all Americans to prosper.
