On September 17, 1787 a small band of men, 39 in total, set in motion an idea that was formulated and placed on parchment, eventually circulated among the several states for ratification that would become the law of the land and the beacon of hope for the entire planet.
As much as The Constitution is under attack on a daily basis from folks who believe it is a “living document” that, therefore, can be killed on a whim as easily as an embryo at the hands of a government sponsored research “scientist;” our Founding Document stands the test of time and the assaults of misguided progressivism, liberalism, conservatism, capitalism, socialism and every other ism out there – all impotent versus the rock solid eternal natural rights the Constitution codifies.
