#54 - Why Fight for the Constitution?

When you say you are for a ban on guns without an amendment...
you are in violation of the 2nd amendment

When you endorse federal agencies like the EPA and the Department of ED...
you are in violation of the 10th amendment

When you sacrifice privacy and fair trial rights for security with the patriot act...
you are in violations of th 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, and 9th amendments

Some who defend these things call the constitution anachronistic, and ask why should we listen to a document created in 1776?

Why? Cause our Liberty and Freedom depends on it.

Violations like the ones I've listed above set a precedence that one can legislate in direct violation with the constitution and get away with it. If this is the case what prevents the congress from ignoring the 13th amendment and bringing back slavery? What stops the congress from ignoring the 15th and 19th amendments and telling people they can't vote? Why should we assure your a jury in civil cases instead unilateral judge rulings as promised in the 7th amendment?

The constitution in your eyes may not be perfect, but this is what the amendment mechanism is for and these unjust wars and federal agencies just undermine the only symbol that truly protect our civil liberties from tyranny from the ever growing state.

I support Ron Paul, cause he believes in the Constitution
