Our country has grown by leaps and bounds because of our Constitution. Our Constitution has been called the greatest governing document ever written by man. It’s interesting that our country is formed as a”republic” but most politicians call it a democracy. I wonder if they forget the Pledge of Allegiance where it plainly says “to the “republic for which it stands”. My husband and I visited Washington, D.C. recently and went to the National Archives and saw a movie called Democracy Starts Here. The movie never said that our country was a republic.Our founding fathers never wanted a democracy they wanted a republic. Maybe we should read the Constitution to our politicians and inform them we are not in mob rule and that they are our elected representatives. We should always exercise our constitutional rights and never take our rights for granted. However, if there is a great movie about how our Constitution was made called “A More Perfect Union.” The movie says explicitly that our nation is a republic founded on ancient biblical principles. Our founding fathers read a lot of books including the “Bible”. The earliest representative government was found in the books of Deuteronomy, Exodus and Leviticus. This representative government lasted 400 years up until the first king of Israel. So they discovered this while reading the Old Testament. Benjamin Franklin suggested that the seal of the United States of America should represent Moses taking out the children of Israel of Egypt. Later on a different seal for our country was chosen. So all in all I am thankful for this country and the supreme Law of the land the United States Constitution. We the people agree to this Constitution for our United States of America. We have agreed in order that our Union is stronger, set standards for justice, keep the peace at home, provide for the common defense, promote our general well being, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. Amen.
