Please Remind The Congressional Clowns

Today is Constitution Day, the two hundred and twenty second anniversary of the signing of our Constitution. It is the oldest and most venerated Constitution in the world. William Gladstone, then Prime Minister of England, pronounced it "the most wonderful work ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of man."

The Congressional Clowns who have ignored it or claim that it "grows" with the passing years, do so at their peril -- and at ours. Whatever the changing mores, fashions, and technologies in our country, this Constitution deals with human nature which does not change. It is worthy of respect.

There is nothing in the Constitution that would justify the federal government taking over banks, automobile companies, choices of light bulbs, the health care industry, insurance companies, or instituting a cap and trade system, among other things. Our freedom and way of life will perish if we do not return to the Constitution.
