The delegates in Philadelphia completed writing the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. Constitution Day commemorates that day.
The Constitution of the United States was designed to stand the test of time, and it has indeed endured for over two centuries. For many, it is considered the greatest document every conceived, and it is held in high esteem for nearly all Americans. But the appreciation of the U.S. Constitution does not stop there. The U.S. Constitution is also an object of admiration by peoples around the world.
Challenges were immediately launched against the Constitution. Those who believe in collectivism have been determined to subvert the Constitution, and as time has passed the campaign against the principles of liberty the Constitution espouses has progressed to a violent assault, and a call for a socialist revolution.
The document limits the authority of the federal government so as to protect the people from tyranny, and to encourage liberty through free choices, and a free market.
The Constitution has endured for over 200 years, and its enduring integrity cannot be taken for granted. We must be educated regarding the Constitution’s principles, and we must fight to preserve the Constitution, for our nation’s future depends on it … especially now.
