On September 17, 1787, forty-two of the 55 delegates to the Constitutional Convention held their final meeting. Only one item of business occupied the agenda that day, to sign the Constitution of the United States of America.” -- http://usgovinfo.about.com/blconstday.htm



Today is National Constitution Day. Let’s hope and pray that our elected officials will take a closer look at their policies and legislation in light of this document through which they are to filter their law-making. Take a look at the following quotes in reference to the Constitution:



Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.” -- Abraham Lincoln



The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government - lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.” -- Patrick Henry
