Remember Our Liberty, Leadership and the U.S. Constitution

At this point in our history and time of elections for the leader, I went back to review our roots and the foundation of our nation. I need to review what I’ve learned about the U.S. Constitution. I became acquainted with an outstanding scholar of the U.S. Constitution and through him I’ve learned more than I ever remember learning in my American history classes. Chad Kent, speaker and expert on the U.S. Constitution, is known as “the Constitution Guy” – he helps people understand the intricacies of the Constitution as if he knew the Founding Fathers personally. (learn more at www.ChadKentspeaks.com) He demonstrates a passion for his topic, he shows his passion for liberty and the U.S. Constitution. According to Chad, “the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence are the greatest documents in political history.” Shouldn’t we all review this prior to going to exercise our right to vote for our leaders of this great nation? It does not matter what political party you belong to, or what candidates are most impressive to you. The most important fact is your right to vote and express your belief in a candidate.

    Bonnie – good point… we take our rights in the US for granted at our peril. Millions of people have risked life and limb to sneak into our country, and yet we still don’t get it. Men and women have died protecting our freedoms, and people complain because of the campaigning and the signs along the streets.

    I have friends who are naturalized citizens. It’s embarrassing that they know more about our Constitution than most of us do. I’m sorry that they stopped teaching it in school. We had Civics class when I was in high school. We had to read the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution. We were tested on it. We learned to appreciate our Founding Fathers and the meaning of the Flag and the Star Spangled Banner.

    Now so many are lost in their own little techie worlds and forget what a gift this hard-won Liberty is. I hope they don’t wake up too late. Once lost, this will be hard to regain.

    Semper Fi and God Bless America,

    The decision in Marbury v. Madison has never been disturbed, although it has been criticized and has had opponents throughout our history. It not only carried the day in the federal courts, but from its announcement judicial review by state courts of local legislation under local constitutions made rapid progress and was securely established in all States by 1850.
