If the Constitution requires maintenance we can amend it. However, those who find fault with the document refuse the amendment process. They ignore it. They draft new laws knowing that their new laws are unconstitutional. They issue verdicts, judgments and rulings knowing that they have violated our fundamental laws and principles.
We are a free people. To remain so we have to protect what protects our freedom. We have to protect the Constitution. We are all free to think as we like. We are all free to have our own ideas. But not all ideas are equal. Not all ideas are American. We can disagree on questions of policy and procedure. We can disagree on a great many things. But we cannot disagree on the validity and authority of the Constitution. Ideas that undermine the authority of the Constitution are not merely bad ideas; they are un-American. This day comes each year and it is marked in my calendar. It serves as a reminder of my duty to uphold and defend the Constitution. I have taken an oath to do so and I am unaware of any expiration on that oath. The promise to protect the Constitution remains binding on me until my death. I believe that the same is true for everyone that takes that oath, whether a member of the military, a judge, a lawyer or a politician. If you have not take the oath for any of these reasons I would encourage you to take this oath now. You don't need to join the military or get elected to office to make this promise and write it upon the fleshy tablets of your heart. I earnestly pray for your success in keeping this oath and that God may Bless America.
