Constitution Day 2009

Ben Franklin was walking down a street the day after the Constitution was signed, and a lady asked him, "Mr. Franklin, what have you done?" And his answer was, "We've given you a democratic republic. Hopefully, you won't lose it." Our Constitution has been around for 222 years, and I believe this document to be divinely inspired. This is not a living document that needs to be changed to our times. And the rights that are guaranteed by it are scriptural. I fear now we have a president that believes our Constitution is a flawed document, and it seems he's doing his best to circumnavigate it every chance he gets. Last Saturday in Washington D.C., my faith in the people of this country was renewed. Mainly because almost everybody in that 2.2 million crowd had sacrificed financially to attend this demonstration. It was the most polite crowd I was ever in, and the people were from every state in the union. It was honestly like there were no strangers - you could talk to anybody. We now have leaders who have demonstrated that the new foreign policy of our country is apologize and retreat. Our latest foreign policy blunder is our sellout of the Poles and Czechs by the cancellation of the missile defense shield for Eastern Europe. This is reminiscent of Neville Chamberlin in the late 1930s, and how he sold out the Czechs to the Nazis. I hope history isn't repeating itself.
