“Let no more be said of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”
If you were asked whether you would stand up and defend the Constitution of the United States (original meaning, not Supreme Court Interpretation) what would you say?
Yes, or “Well… some parts need to be looked at more closely.” (That means no, in a black and white world.)
Should we be allowed to say, “Well I love that 1st Amendment thing, but that 2nd one… I’m not too sure about that one….”
I don’t think so. What kind of world would we have if, for example, people got to pick and choose which of the Ten Commandments they wanted to stand up for? Uh, well… THIS KIND OF WORLD!
It’s time we came up with some kind of easy way of getting a sense of what people really believe; where they really stand.
If you knew that there were millions of people all over your state, and all over the country that would stand up for all or most of the same things you stood for, what would that mean to you?
