We’re better than this.

That was my overwhelming thought as I reflected on today’s elitists who have hijacked, distorted, or otherwise ignored America’s founding document.

Today is the 227th anniversary of the United States Constitution, a revolutionary document that established a one-of-a-kind Republic. It is truly magnificent. The Constitution was clear: there would be no king, no royalty, no lords. Instead, the authority rested in the rule of law and consent of the governed. By carefully separating the government’s power into three branches, the Framers of the Constitution sought to check the federal government against itself in order to preserve the rights and freedoms of the people.

The states themselves would serve as an additional safeguard against any overreach with its representation in the Senate. Unfortunately, that role has since been abolished, and subsequently the balance of power has been tipped dangerously. 

“As government expands, liberty contracts.” -Ronald Reagan
