I did not celebrate Constitution Day September 17, primarily because I did not know how to do so. The Federal Government requires the college where I work to do something on that day to qualify for it’s Title IV grant for which, if people really read the document, they would find no authority.
I was asked to give suggestions. The assigned administrator and I pondered several options, none of which seemed fitting or particularly meaningful. Still, we should do something; ignorance on this document is appalling and patriotism from those under 25 seems virtually dead. Even the president was filmed recently with his hands to his side during the playing of the national anthem, expressing total ignorance, total disrespect, or both (see the video on LibertyUnderFire.org).
Nearly no one reads this document anymore. Republicans only give lip service to it, and Democrats don’t even pretend to do that much. So how shall we celebrate Constitution Day? Should we celebrate the total disregard of the list in Article I, Section 8 from which the government is limited in making laws?Details
From Reason.TV – “How the Commerce Clause Made Congress All-Powerful”
September 17 is Constitution Day–the day the Constitution was signed in Philadelphia and sent to the states for ratification.
This day SHOULD be a national holiday, but as we have seen in all to many cases, the slow eroding of accurate, proper, and true American history continues and eats away at the links to our Founding that are so critical to the future of our Republic. This is clearly being done on purpose by the left and the educational bureaucracy that wishes to rewrite and erase the TRUE story of our Founding and the great men and stories behind it.
But you can do your part in reconnecting with the tand maybe bring a few people along with you!Details

I listen to outraged radio and television talk show hosts, clearly arguing against what is happening with the out of control federal government, sometimes getting heated to the point of obvious frustration, meanwhile Obama and the enemy within are passing legislation and borrowing more money than we can ever pay back. The left and their…Details
The debates that one sees in the comments sections and forums these days is a fascinating mix. Everyone in DC sat down in a new chair 2 years ago and so it’s easy to get the sense that our political world is in flux, with progressives bashing Obama and conservatives nodding their heads at the…Details
During the U.S. Presidential campaigns of 2008, I endeavored to write a book about Freedom. I was literally compelled to do so with the most motivated passion and necessity. Why? Because I saw how the wall of separation between Slavery and Freedom has crumbled and has not withstood the ambitions of tyrants or the ignorance…Details
