    I like the whole thing. Some today say it does not apply to our current age. It is, like the Bible, always up-to-date and currently applicable. If they would only operate by it, they would discover that it really is pertinent to today’s governance. The current administration is evidence that it needs to be applied to the government today to realize success.

    What I love most about our founding documents is how they have proven durable and satisfactory for so very long. I don’t really have a portion that is so great, it is the amalgamation that is so good.

    Love everything about the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. What I would really love would be politicians sitting down and actually reading it.

    I love that the Constitution is the first document ever on the planet that describes how free people will govern themselves. I love that it describes a limited government and that the people’s rights are derived from God and Nature, not a king or a dictator or an “expert”. I love how the Constitution limits the power government has over free people. I love how the Constitution set us free from tyranny, and continues to keep us free from it! I love how it asks free people to be responsible for their government, and that we can and should participate in our self-governing. If we do not continue to love our Constitution and self-government, tyranny will surely return…

    We love the Bill of Rights! We especially love number one and number ten, which allow us to speak our minds, be people of faith and give our lovely state it’s rights.

    I love that you are supporting and fostering a love for the Constitution, especially in young people who do not get much real history in their education. If they never hear the inspiring words of our past heroes –they are doomed to scrabble about in the muddy swamp that is Despair; with only the dull, dull company of an undistinguished and leaderless mob. We mustn’t let them feel that, that’s all there is.

    The Checks and Balances to me are the best part of the Constitution or at least as it was written. The problem though if your different levels of government make a career out of government and the collusion becomes prevalent it becomes more of a “balance and check” whereas it is really counter productive.
    The system as set up was great, but when any one falters there is the attraction of corruption and when any one of these fails to act it becomes conspiratorial and unchecked it becomes destructive. With the help of Re-Constituting America and all their assistance we can overcome this and get things back on track.

    It is a document that was written by the courage of those who came from abroad to establish a nation founded upon freedom instead of monarchy. It is a document that men and women had the courage to lay down their lives in fighting for freedom from Britain. It is a document that men and women had the courage to lay down their lives to fight for freedom for blacks in America. It is a document that yours and my great grandparents, grandparents, parents have layed down their lives to protect through many wars so others could share our freedom. It is a document that those who hate our freedom are attempting to destroy this day. It is a document that Vets have layed down their lives to defend and may have to do so again to defend the document. It is a document that guarantees our freedoms and without it WE HAVE NO FREEDOMS.
