Constitution Day

Today marks one of the most important days in the history of these United States. Unfortunately it will pass unnoticed to many Americans. On September 17, 1787 the Constitution of the United States was signed in Philadelphia, establishing the government we live by, and enjoy today. The Constitution, and subsequent amendments, define limits on government, as well as the freedoms we enjoy as citizens, and the responsibilities that go along with those freedoms.

Unfortunately there are those who wish to weaken, or ignore completely, this document. Attacks come from both sides of the political spectrum. The most egregious attacks come from those people who swore oaths to uphold the Constitution.

Don't let this anniversary pass unnoticed. Take a moment to truly think about what it would mean to lose ANY of the rights enumerated in this document.
