Is The Constitution Our National Strategy?

This is a great question.

Ever election has in it several parts but the one part that seem to get the most lip service is the US Constitution.

There are attacks almost daily in our daily lives and yet it has survived…even with all the debate on its content…..

Our new president might do well to get a cram course in the Constitution before he takes office…..that would be best for him…that is if he truly wants what is best for all Americans.  (I will gladly send him my leather bound copy of the document if he would like)

There is an interesting op-ed in the Washington Times…….

Contrary to conventional wisdom (which is invariably wrong), the United States Constitution is the nation’s strategy for greatness. The strategy entails invincible self-defense; peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations; and, entangling alliances with none.

At present, that strategy means returning our troops stationed abroad back to the United States to defend we the people, not foreigners whose loyalties lie elsewhere. It means repositioning all of our air and naval forces to defend we the people, not foreigners whose loyalties lie elsewhere. It means devoting our cyber warfare capabilities to defending we the people, not foreigners whose loyalties lie elsewhere. And it means renouncing all of our treaty commitments to defend other nations militarily without congressional declarations of war.

My thought is if one does not want to live by the Constitution then call for a convention and change it….if not then shut up and live within its parameters.  It is that simple…even a Trump supporter could understand it.

  1. The constitution lost it’s meaning a long time ago when corporations and wealth became the favored currency of power. Until that changes, the status quo will continue and the non-wealthy will increasingly feel the burden.

    1. If we take out the Bill of Rights then the Constitution is basically an economic document….just the way the Founders wanted it….so I agree with you on this point….chuq

  2. Passing again, as my point was made. When lobbying became a part of government, the power of the Constitution was diluted, and has continued ever since….

    Onward…
