Muskets and the Constitution


constitutionpg1 Every morning I stop for a cup of coffee either at Speedway or 7-11, depending on if I need gas or what office I am going to. This morning, like most, I was headed to the main office I work from, so it was 7-11. It is always interesting in there, some days if reminds me of the old country store, old men drinking coffee and talking up politics or sports or any other news of the day. I sort of like it, it gives me a real “Home-Town” feeling. But this morning, well it was a bit different. As I pulled in to my parking space I can see an animated conversation going on, The morning 7-11 worker was waving his hands about, like he was stuffing something in to something else. It was odd looking, but as I opened the door, this is the comment I heard:

“It was written when we were still using muskets, this is why the constitution is irrelevant”

Now the fact that we no longer use muskets, how is that relevant to the constitution? Not sure I get the point…

 

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Ya, I could see how that statement may be out of date, old and no longer relevant… NOT!

I mean really…. Come on… Just stop and think before you speak.. IT’s not hard…

Progressivism is the cancer in America and it is eating our Constitution, and it was designed to eat the Constitution, to progress past the Constitution.
Glenn Beck

Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.
James Madison

To live under the American Constitution is the greatest political privilege that was ever accorded to the human race.
Calvin Coolidge

What I am for is justice for everyone, just like it says in the Constitution.
Richard Pryor

Our constitution works. Our great republic is a government of laws, not of men.
Gerald R. Ford

The Constitution guarantees us our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That’s all. It doesn’t guarantee our rights to charity.
Jesse Ventura

The Constitution of the United States was made not merely for the generation that then existed, but for posterity- unlimited, undefined, endless, perpetual posterity.
Henry Clay

The American Constitution is the greatest governing document, and at some 7,000 words, just about the shortest.
Stephen Ambrose

"Empathy" is the latest code word for liberal activism, for treating the Constitution as malleable clay to be kneaded and molded in whatever form justices want. It represents an expansive view of the judiciary in which courts create policy that couldn’t pass the legislative branch or, if it did, would generate voter backlash.
Karl Rove

We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.
Abraham Lincoln
Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.
Abraham Lincoln
The U. S. Constitution doesn’t guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it. You have to catch up with it yourself.
Benjamin Franklin
