Constitution Day: 'Liberty Aflame' by Peter Boyce

Bookmark and Share

Today, September 17, is Constitution Day, a day to celebrate the greatness that is the triumph of the US Constitution - a document breaking thousands of years of lack of freedom to humans. With that I bring you this article by Peter Boyce of the Constitution Party.


Liberty Aflame
By Peter F. Boyce

Peter Boyce
“We the People” are asleep in a house which is burning. The smoke we are beginning to smell is that of the U.S. Constitution.

"No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffuse[e]d and Virtue is preserv[e]d. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauch[e]d in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders." --Samuel Adams, 1775

Our ignorance is due in part to our apathy and the failure of both public and private schools to clearly teach the principles of liberty embodied in America’s founding documents in a manner applicable to our daily lives. Our elected officials, on both the state and federal levels, get away with plundering the labors of the people through a blank check provided by our own ignorance of the limitations imposed upon them by the Constitution they swear to honor.

Debauchery results from the insufficient patriotic fire and moral indignation expressed from the pulpits to stand up against the relentless onslaught of the mainstream media. For decades the agenda of the major media has been hell-bent on eroding the moral fiber which used to be the hallmark of the American people.

Recognizing our descent into the abyss of socialism, Senator Robert Byrd (WV-D) wisely slipped in an addendum to a major appropriations bill establishing September 17th as “Constitution Day”. Since 2004, Public Law 108-447 requires that on that day each year, all Federal employees must receive educational training and materials on the U.S. Constitution. It also mandates that all educational institutions that receive Federal funds in a fiscal year must hold an educational program on the Constitution.

It is not too late to begin exercising our duties of American citizenship. That duty begins with the careful reading, clear understanding, and then the respectful demand that our elected representatives restrain their legislative passions to within the boundaries prescribed by the Constitution they swear to. Haven’t read it since high school? In commemoration of Constitution Day, we are offering, free of charge, a pocket Constitution and the DVD “Overview of America” which I believe is the best DVD ever produced about our precious constitutional Republic. Please call 609-501-3351.
