Constitution of the United States

Like the 'North Star', which is well known for its navigational significance, The Constitution of the United States is our ‘North Star’ for governance of a free people. It is the greatest framework for self-government ever devised by humankind. The first three words, “We The People…” assert that we, the citizens, are most capable of governing ourselves. The founders devised a Representative Republic empowering the citizens of the nation to elect representatives who are subordinate to us, not ‘rulers’ over us. This is the underlying foundational principle represented by the Constitution.

Unfortunately, we, and our elected representatives, have drifted off course. Today, we have elected members of the House and Senate who consistently violate the principles of Constitutional governance. We are witnessing, in real-time, the willful destruction of our Constitutional Republic.

Over the course of my career, I have sworn an oath no less than 5 times to “…support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;  … so help me God.”  Once would have been sufficient; however, each time it reinforced my commitment to our nation and our Constitutional Republic.

One facet of a solution for what ails our nation is to rededicate ourselves to the principles of government that the framers infused into the Constitution. Another critical facet of the solution is “We The People…”. We are the ones with the power to hold our elected officials accountable.

The Constitution should be taught to every natural born citizen from childhood; it should be taught and understood by all who are granted naturalized citizenship; and, it deserves to be read and re-read often by everyone, especially members of Congress.
