Today, September 17, in 1787, the United States Constitution was signed.   As Delegate Ben Franklin exited Independence Hall, he was famously asked, “What have you given us, Sir?”  His reply, “A Republic, Madam, if you can keep it,” rings especially true today.   We Americans need a refresher course on the Constitutional principles which have enabled us over the years and still today to build the “more perfect union” for which we together strive.

The “We the People” presentation linked here was originally written and narrated by Phyllis Schlafly in 1987 in honor of the Bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution.  It was approved by the Commission on the Bicentennial on which Phyllis served and it was shown in slide format by Eagle Forum volunteers from coast to coast to Americans of all occupations, ages, races and creeds.  The video footage and pictures have been updated for online viewing, but the narration is the Phyllis Schlafly original.   Its truths are timeless and critical.  It focuses on these aspects of our Constitution:

  • Why the Constitution is the fountainhead of our great religious, political and economic liberties
  • How the Constitution developed from the Declaration of Independence and Articles of Confederation
  • Who were the writers and what ideas they brought to Philadelphia the hot summer of 1787
  • What are the basic principles, such as sovereignty of “We the People” and separation of powers
  • How the executive, legislative and judicial branches are separate yet function together
  • How our constitutional government differs from the parliamentary system
  • How our Constitution laid the foundation for our free and prosperous economy
  • Why its composition was said to be divinely inspired and its adoption, a miracle
  • How the Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution to guarantee our individual freedoms of religion, speech, press and property 
  • … And Much More!

Be encouraged with us that “our Constitution is still standing proud”!  Let’s keep it that way.

Each of us must act now to preserve and protect the American dream of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for every citizen.  What will you do?   

Pray for those in authority as well as for those who do not understand American exceptionalism and seek to destroy it. Pray for a return to God in accord with I Chron. 7:14.   “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land.”

 

Will you join this march as we call out to God to heal our land?

Andy Schlafly’s statement against a Convention of the States

I completely oppose an Article V convention.  It is a dangerous threat to our values and our Nation.  Congress or judicial activism would likely require that the voting at such a convention be in proportion to population, and thereby dominated by liberal states.  They would probably put a right to abortion and homosexual marriage into the Constitution, and repeal the Second Amendment.  There is nothing good that can result from an Article V convention, because Congress and the Courts will not feel restrained by a new amendment any more than they comply with existing text.  Even proposing an Article V convention has the harmful effect of devaluing the Constitution we cherish.

The original Constitutional Convention was made possible by rules of secrecy against media interference. That is impossible today and thus the liberal media would obtain the result it wants.  Pinning one’s hopes on an Article V convention today is like a bankrupt man turning to gambling to solve his family’s financial problems.  Hard work, in electing good people who defend our existing Constitution, is what is needed.  The pie-in-the-sky, dangerous proposal of an Article V convention should be rejected.
