Save The U.S. Constitution

Updated: Sep 8, 2021

America celebrates Constitution Day on September 17, but we are about to remove one of the most important pieces of our nation's history: our Constitution.

But there is also something that makes America first and foremost, and that is the people themselves. : It's our people. The document that we consider the Constitution of the United States is, of course, the Constitution, but it is also our ethos, our way of life, with which the framers signed the document. It was created only for a moral and religious people, says Adam Smith, a political science professor at the University of California, Berkeley. To understand the purpose of the United States Constitution in the 2020s, we must be a "people."

Clark goes on to mention the Constitution, quoting the words of George Mason, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. Five days before the signing of the Declaration, George Mason of Virginia, who co-authored the Declaration of Virginia's Rights, proposed that a similar provision be introduced. With this encouragement, the authors of our Constitution have also included the first ten amendments known as the Bill of Rights. These provisions and some others may be important in some cases, but our main protection of individual freedom rests on the ten constitutional amendments we know as our Bill of Rights.

Although Mason's motion was overwhelmingly rejected, opponents of the Constitution did not abandon the idea of a new Congress after the election of George Mason.

They had to explain why they believed that "protections," as the Supreme Court put it, should not be granted to the American people in writing, but rather enshrined in the United States Constitution. Indeed, the Constitution imposes an entire governance structure that is wholly unsuited to the modern era and that functions like today's straitjacket. The federal government cannot perform a function that is not explicitly stated in our Constitution, and we have a government that operates under an outdated Constitution imposed on us by the US Constitution itself. They advocated a stricter interpretation of the Constitution, which meant that what was written in it applied to all of us.

The basic problem is that powers not explicitly granted to the federal government are reserved for the states and the people in the "reserve clause" of the 10th Amendment. The Tenth Amendment to our US Constitution states that the states have all powers that are not delegated or prohibited to the federal government, such as the right to life, liberty, and property.

The Tenth Amendment provides that all powers not delegated or prohibited by the Constitution to the United States or to any of the States are reserved for the States and the people. Ratification conventions of all nine states are the first and only means of ratifying the same, not the ratification of any other constitutional amendment.

Americans trust that the armed forces of the United States, with a focus on the American people, will protect themselves and their Constitution for nearly 250 years, and they undoubtedly can continue to do so. They can have no doubt that their soldiers will continue to serve, as they have done since Washington handed over the presidency to Adams. We may be at the end of an era in which the institutions that the founding fathers created will not save us, but we will be able to save ourselves. The president is president, so there can be no question that they were so worried about us.

The United States Constitution remains in force because the framework legislators have separated and balanced the powers of the state to protect people's rights and freedoms, the rule of law, and freedom of speech and religion.

When the Constitution was put before the states, the absence of a bill caused more controversy than any other aspect of the document and prevented its ratification. When James Madison campaigned in Virginia for the ratification of the Constitution, he encountered so much controversy over the lack of legislation - rights - that he promised to support an amendment if the new administration got in the way. In the fall of 1788, Madison was convinced that a "bill" was necessary to ensure acceptance of our Constitution and would have a positive effect. Douglass's subsequent movement for the people ended the original sin of slavery and continued to correct our founding flaws by putting more people under the Constitution's protection and expanding our democratic society. We could use the so-called "Constitution of the Nation" - even before emancipation - as a weapon against slavery, oppression, and oppression itself.

Founding father James Madison, known as the "Father of the Constitution," expressed similar sentiments in creating our Constitution. Madison assured in "The Federalist" that they need not fear the new government because "there is no people without weapons, as there is in almost every other nation. Madison examined the two hundred amendments proposed by the states as they debated ratifying the Constitution. There were twenty or seven amendments, and I read them over and over again while preparing this thought piece.
