Come, Let Us Discuss It!

Our U.S. Constitution


May Our Flag Still Wave!

May Our Flag Still Wave!

Isn’t our flag beautiful?  When ever I see her I think of our freedom.  When I think of our freedom I think of our Constitution.  Have you read it recently? At all?   It is quite a document; very special.  Some say it is living.  No, I don’t think so.  To say it is living is to say it is changeable, growing with the times.  This is what some want you to think.  Our Founding Fathers did allow for some change but only by utilizing the proper channels – via process of an amendment. Otherwise, you have men constantly making changes to benefit a few not the majority.  It is like changing the rules to a sport, say, baseball.  Following along with me:

Team “A” has two strikes against it.  Joe on Team “A” is up to bat.  He misses the first ball, the second ball and the third ball.  An out is called.  But, no, Joe said that the rules were changed and now you can have four strikes before you are out.  Team “B” replies, “When did we vote on that?”  Team “B” finds that a elite group known as the “Judges” made the decision to usurp the existing rules and lay a few down themselves. After all, they have the power and they know what is good for others they say.  However, the Judges forgot that they have a ruler over them.  You have heard of “checks and balances”?  Well, in this case, that would be Congress.  It seems that a large majority of people (We the people) relay on Congress to perform their job.  It is their responsibility to intervene when power is out of control and “Judges” make law instead of interpret law.

Are you getting the picture?  You must visit D.J. Connolly site (click on his name under Blogrolls to your right) and read his story- Thanks D.J.
