Do YOU Believe in the Constitution?

The Sam Adams Alliance, a conservative, free market think tank out of Chicago (right in the belly of the liberal beast) has launched a new site today called “I Believe in the Constitution” as a great way to celebrate Constitution day.

So, if YOU believe in the greatest governing document ever conceived by the mind of man, go on over and sig the petition. Then post about it on your blogs and message boards. Put it on your FaceBook, Twitter or MySpace pages.

September 17, 1787, the delegates to the United States Constitutional Convention gathered for the last time in Philadelphia to put their names at the bottom of a very important document: the Constitution of the United States. After long months filled with some of the most important discussions on the role of government in world history, the document which survives, to this day, as a monument to freedom was born. A year later, on September 13, 1788, the same group of delegates would vote to put the Constitution in operation, and the United States of America, as we know it, was born. Over the two centuries since the Philadelphia delegates signed off on it, the Constitution has undergone several changes, notably the addition of the Bill of Rights and the 27 Amendments, which guarantee the basic freedoms all Americans have come to cherish, and which cannot be taken away.

The Founding Fathers, in creating the Constitution, charged Americans with a very important task: to ensure that their values — those of individual liberty and limited government — apparent in the Constitution, be preserved for all generations of Americans. Over the years, these values of liberty and democracy have begun to fray and our Constitution has been neglected.

So what can you do?

Well, for starters, you can pledge your support for the Constitution by going to IBelieveintheConstitution.com, and signing the petition in support of our founding document as it was written and as the Founders intended. You can also re-educate yourself and your family on the Constitution, its history, and its legacy by visiting any of these sites: the U. S. National Archives and the National Archive’s Constitutional Workshop, Congress for Kids, the Department of Education’s U.S. Constitution Teaching Guide, and the National Constitution Center.

And Happy Constitution Day!
