In 1787 delegates from the 12 of the 13 states met in Philadelphia to create a new form of government that would protect the rights of the people and limit the ability of the government to violate the God given rights of the people.
The delegates understood that power corrupts and that men in positions of power tend abuse that power in order to satisfy their greed and lust for power.The Constitution is a rule book written to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. .
The Constitution was not written to govern the people, it was written to govern the government.
If properly observed the Constitution would create a land characterized by liberty, equality and justice.
Failure of the people to hold government officials accountable for violating the Constitution has allowed an oligarchy of rich and powerful individuals with the power to exploit the people to benefit themselves and their cronies.
