Constitution has Divine and miraculous origin

I am always amazed at the insight of our predecessors. They were able to gaze into the future like prophets of old, accurately speaking truths that today many people seem unable to comprehend. Our forefathers understood the value of America's Constitution and were fully aware of its Divine and miraculous origin. They warned us to treasure it and to protect it, recognizing that should it break down, should its governing principles cease to be strictly followed, global tyranny would ultimately prevail. We are watching the reality of their vision unfold before our eyes! Unfortunately, today many people view our Constitution with scorn and its principles are disregarded as antiquated. Politicians, judges and other leaders who are sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution, have forsaken it altogether or they declare it a "living document," able to change with society according to the whims of men and the subjective 'politically correct' climate of the day.

Character matters, especially in elected representatives

We are reaping the consequences of electing unprincipled individuals to office. For decades we have been told, "character doesn't matter" so far as affecting one's ability for making sound judgment. Why have we believed that lie? Who among us really believes such a twisted thought? Further, why does this apply only to politicians and not to other areas of civic life?

For example, if it were true that "character does not matter," then why would you not allow a convicted child molester to babysit your children? Why do many jobs require character references and criminal background checks prior to employment? Because they understand that character matters! In fact, one's character is the most important factor in determining one's qualifications for many positions of employment. Why then would we give politicians a pass? Character matters!

Why would we elect individuals who do not share the philosophy of our Constitution or our nation's religious heritage?

Easy prey in Congress for special interest money to trade

Why would they pass harmful legislation or make rulings contrary to the Constitution? Generally speaking, one simply needs to follow the 'money trail' for answers. Lobbyists and special interests have often found easy prey among members of Congress who are willing to trade the best interests of America for personal gain. Regarding the judges, pressure from political elites can be extremely tempting. Federal judges are appointed, not elected. Therefore, the only hope for advancement is often by 'standing out' as an advocate for politically correct ideology. By making judicial rulings that are favorable toward a political agenda, the potential for future judicial appointments is increased. It is tragic.
