Our Framers of the Constitution knew that the government that they had just created could be a blessing or a curse depending on how well oue elected officials would honor their covenant with the people.
They believed that all men had been endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights. They also knew that throughout the history of mankind there has always been individuals in society that have sought to use their wealth and power to enslave their fellow man.
They knew that if the Consitution was strictly obeyed it would be the source of peace, prosperity and freedom. They also knew that if the rich and powerful were waiting in the wings to take over, if the people were not ever vigilant. They understood that the government they created to protect us would one day become the source of our enslavement.Details
