Okay, EVERYONE please find the time to go back and read the Constitution of the United States of America.
There will be a quiz – every day.
Please REMEMBER that one of the greatest things about the Constitution is that it is based on the concept of government by consent. That means that we all agree to this government, that it’s OUR government, that we OWN it and it only exists by our continued consent.
When we complain about “them” in the government we are either complaining about ourselves or falling into the fallacy that says that we don’t OWN this government. Both are wrong.
If you choose not to exercise your right of ownership, that’s one thing.
You do NOT have the right to complain about the government you OWN unless you are actively exercising your right of ownership.
My congresspeople and president are probably sick of hearing from me but I don’t care. THEY work for ME (and you).
Please remember that. It’s OUR government. Because we all collectively don’t agree on things, it’s a government of consensus.
But this government, this nation WE OWN, only works if we continue to exercise our rights and our responsibilities as mutual owners and inheritors of own of the greatest experiments in government ever to have been tried.
If you want to read a good refresher on how we got this particular Constitution and why, I highly recommend reading Decision in Philadelphia by Christopher Collier and James Lincoln Collier.
