Why Study the Constitution? - - - An editorial by David Toy
The Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians 6: 11 to: “Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” We can all agree; that is wonderful advice. Now, we must also put on the full armor of the United States Constitution because, sadly, our current crop of politicians do not agree with Barry Goldwater, who said: “I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is ‘needed’ before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible.”
Do you remember who said: “I chopped down the cherry tree; — I cannot tell a lie.” Do you also remember who said: “If you have health insurance through your employer and this bill passes, his premiums will go down 3,000%; —he’ll be able to give you a raise.” George Washington could not tell a lie because he was an honorable man of strong moral fiber. Barack Hussein Obama cannot tell the truth because, if he did, the public would oppose his plans to fundamentally change the United States.
With the president and many members of congress willing to lie continually to advance their agenda and a news media eager to cover for them, we must know and understand everything that is in our constitution or it will soon become an insignificant piece of parchment. If we, the citizens of this great country, do not know and protect our rights, they will erode and disappear until we are mere serfs, fodder to fuel an all powerful, tyrannical government run amuck.
