When Will People Defend The Constitution?

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The preamble of the Constitution. I recited it by memory. It's engraved in my heart. Not too many people can recite it, yet alone the first few famous words.

Then there's the Bill of Rights. What most Americans take for granted. So many people do not know their rights, especially after the tenth. The fundamentals of our great country are not being learned by people today. In school, kids always ask why do they have to take history class. They do not understand the significance of learning about this country.

History repeats itself.

When will people defend the Constitution? First people must know the Constitution and what rights we have as citizens of the United States. So many simple issues will disappear once people read the Constitution. Reasons as to why illegal immigrants or prisoners of war at Guantanamo Bay should not be given rights.


Now when I refer to "people", I do not mean the conservatives and the few who do proudly fight for and defend the Constitution.

People take their rights for granted. Thousands of men and women lost their lives for our country. This country is founded on liberty. Liberty
is protected in our Constitution. The Founding Fathers were geniuses, who allowed our descendents to be protected from tyrannical government.

Tyranny is a cruel and oppressive government.

In order for the United States to become tyrannical is to start taking away our rights. To go against what our nation was founded on. Slowly the government has grown too large. Certain issues should be left to the states, not the federal government, specified in the Tenth Amendment. When government ignores the Constitution, there is a problem that is slowly growing. Government continues to grow and not follow the written law more and more when people do not acknowledge their actions. ObamaCare infringes not only on our First Amendment rights, but on a few others as well. Such as excessive fines if we do not have healthcare, that exponentially increases annually. 
Other instances is in 2012 when President Obama signed legislation to prohibit certain disturbances during certain political events or speeches.

People will realize that government is overreaching their legal boundaries when it personally effects their everyday lives. Most people are not effected by smaller bills passed by Obama's administration. But ObamaCare effects millions of people directly. New taxes, new regulations, little by little government is controlling everything we do. Small steps they are taking, and many people are not noticing.

People will defend the Constitution when government is in their life and home. New York City has made the legal age to buy tobacco 21. New York City has also tried to prohibit the sale of large quantities of sugary drinks. Slowly but surely, once one thing is passed, it sets the precedent for future evils. Thankfully, courts have stopped the soda ban and many parts of ObamaCare.

It is up to us, the conservatives, the activists, every radio show and TV show, everyone on social media, to spread the truth and let people know what is happening. People think revolution and tyranny is history, or can't happen here in America. Anything is possible, that is what our forefathers wanted to protect us from, and that is why we have the Constitution. Our First Amendment allows us to believe in what we want to believe in. To say what we feel, and to report it to the world. The Second Amendment to physically protect ourselves and our other rights. And every single right we have must be protected in every generation, now and in the future! The safest way to do this is by electing fellow patriots to lawfully and peacefully protect the Constitution.
 
If more people learn about this level of corruption and disregard for the Constitution, people could make a difference. We are the government. Congress and the President work for us. We elect public officials. All we have to do to stop this is to elect men and women who respect and will follow the Constitution. Over 90% of incumbents win re-election. This is because many people are uneducated or don't care. They are the ones ruining this country by allowing our current law makers to continue to disrespect our Constitution, which is disrespecting us.
