Safeguarding the gift that keeps on giving–the US Constitution

From this week’s “Wisconsin Family Connection,” our 5-minute weekly radio commentary airing on over 25 stations around Wisconsin~

The Constitutional Convention really was all about the kind of government this new nation would have for generations to come.   The men who represented the 12 colonies that attended –all the original colonies except Rhode Island send delegates—knew that they faced yet another defining moment in the young country’s history. 

As the summer wore on, they knew they had to get it right.  Too much was at stake.  So they stayed. They again made personal sacrifices on behalf of future generations–and on September 17, 1787, the Constitution was signed by a majority of the delegates.  And, now 224 years later, their original words still form the bulk of the rule of law in this country.  Their gift to future generations is truly a gift that keeps on giving—providing a framework for governing a country for generations, unlike any other document before or since has done or is doing.

    It is now veteran’s day, and you know what? We don’t honor our veterans. I don’t care what anyone says, we don’t. If we did, we wouldn’t be inflicted with liberal politicians who pass sinful and stupid laws. These liberal enemies of America would never have been voted into office. If the WWII generation could’ve looked into the future, and have seen how sinful and degenerate our country that they would save, would become, THEY would have been the generation that said, “Hell no, we won’t go.”
