Today is “Constitution Day.”
On Sept. 17, 1787, delegates (most of them, but not all) at the Philadelphia Convention signed the proposed Constitution for the United States.
Given the operation of the federal government today, it should come as no surprise it has even managed to mess up Constitution Day. In observance, the federal government violates the Constitution.
In 2004, President George W. Bush signed an unconstitutional federal act, with an unconstitutional federal mandate, applying to unconstitutional federally-funded schools – to “teach the Constitution”
And they don’t even teach the Constitution.
They teach a bunch of trivia and maybe talk about the separation of powers between the executive, legislative and judicial branches.
I guarantee you they don’t explain that the states are sovereign in the constitutional system.
They don’t tell students the federal government is extremely limited and can only exercise specifically delegated powers. (And they don’t include mandating constitution lessons in schools.)
And they certainly don’t teach the kids that states can nullify unconstitutional federal acts.
I have a better way to celebrate Constitution Day that will teach kids a lot more than they’ll learn participating in some unconstitutional Constitution Day public school propaganda event.
Buy a copy of my book Constitution Owner’s Manual: The Real Constitution the Politicians Don’t Want You to Know About and give it to a high school student or a high school history teacher. The book explains what the Constitution really says and means. It’s not just a bunch of trivia or government talking points. You can learn more about the book at ConstitutionOwnersManual.com.
