HAVE YOU READ IT???
Today, September 17th, is designated as Constitution Day to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787.
So in honor of this day and that document, I present....
For those of us that served in the US Armed Forces, we swore an oath to defend it:
“I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."
Our President swears an oath to it as well:
“I,__________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
People of many political backgrounds and beliefs, races, religions, genders, ages, ad infinitum, discuss it, debate it, argue about it, BUT....
HAVE YOU ACTUALLY EVER READ IT?
I often wonder, in a time that so many of us try quoting it to our views benefit, how many of us have actually read it. And I mean ALL OF IT.
Here’s a link to it. No political or other agenda here, and any political comments OF ANY KIND will be deleted. Don’t bend it to your world view, no matter which direction you bend. Just read it. Who knows, you might learn something...
