Wwhy does Sept. 17 come and go with so little notice? That’s the date our Constitution was signed in 1787. Considering how profoundly it altered our nation and shaped our destiny, we should be marking Constitution Day with as much pomp and circumstance as we do Independence Day. The Declaration, after all, gave birth to our nation, but the Constitution raised it and gave it its unique and immutable character.
Constitution Day, although itself unconstitutional, provides local governments and educational institutions a chance to teach the people about First Principles and how the federal government has claimed virtually unlimited authority. Let’s make those lessons count!
As the midterm elections cast a heavy shadow over the political discourse, Constitution Day should remind us that our elections are as meaningful as those conducted in the Middle East unless we demand that those elected officials return to our founding principles.
