History of our Beloved Constitution


US Flag and Constitution of the United States of America42 of 55 delegates held a meeting (convention) on September 17, 1787 to sign the Constitution. Up to that point, they held their meetings almost daily at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. George Washington was the president of the Constitutional Convention. After the signing, they sent copies to all the states for ratification. Nine states approved the Constitution on June 21, 1788. The Constitution is only four pages long and is hand-written.

A few facts: Benjamin Franklin was 81 years old at the signing. The youngest was Jonathan Dayton at 26. The Constitution is the world’s oldest written constitution (If you don’t count the Iroquois document). It took some delegates months to arrive at the convention. There was no public transportation or automobiles then. Delaware was the first state to ratify the Constitution while Rhode Island was last. North Carolina initially voted against it.

One of the issues to be resolved before the signing was representation from states versus population. We saw this become a controversy with the 2000 elections. Although the popular vote in some cases went to Al Gore, the delegates went to George Bush. Even then, the slave issue was a problem for both the northern and southern states. The compromise was that slave trade could continue until 1808. Slaves could be counted as 3/5ths of a person for representation.

The Bill of Rights became law on December 15, 1791, three years after nine states approved the Constitution. The Bill of Rights included 10 amendments and was created because of the high level of interest regarding individual freedoms during the Constitutional Convention. 17 additional amendments have been passed since the original document became law. The most recent amendment was ratified on May 2, 1992.

It is more important than ever for teachers to cover the constitution. At no other time in history have we seen the constitution threatened as it is now. If our students are ignorant about our history, how can we save it?

What’s in the Document?

The Constitution includes seven articles and 27 amendments.  Here is a short summary of each article and amendment:

Article 1: This article established the first of the three branches of the government, the legislature. They called it Congress and divided it into two parts, the House of Representations and Senate. The founders wanted to divide power so that one person or entity would not control government. The article goes on to explain how legislators are elected, how bills are created, the number of senators, veto procedures, and the vice president as leader of the senate.

A very important part of this article says that Congress has, “the power to establish and maintain an army and navy, to establish post offices, to create courts, to regulate commerce between the states, to declare war, and to raise money. It also includes a clause known as the Elastic Clause which allows it to pass any law necessary for the carrying out of the previously listed powers.”

Article 2: This article establishes the second of three branches of government, the executive branch. They called the executive branch the president and vice president. Interestingly enough, originally the person with the most votes was president and the person with the second highest votes was vice president. If this was true in 2010, our vice president would have been John McCain.

The article goes on to explain the requirements for the office as well as powers. An important part of the article says the president is “commander-in-chief of the armed forces and of the militia (National Guard) of all the states; he has a Cabinet to aid him, and can pardon criminals. He makes treaties with other nations, and picks many of the judges and other members of the government (all with the approval of the Senate).

Article 3: This article establishes the third of three branches of government, the judiciary. It mentions that the highest court in the country is the supreme court and that supreme court justices may serve as long a they are on “good behavior.” It goes on to explain the appeals process as well as the fact everyone is guaranteed a jury trial if they desire.

Article 4: This article states that all states must honor the laws of other states. If a couple is married in Florida, they are also married in all other states. The article states that all citizens must be treated equally and fairly. It deals with fugitives from justice being returned to the state they fled from. This article ensures a republican form of government. An important section of this article states that “the state derives its power from the people, (not from a king or gentry) and guarantees that the federal government will protect the states against invasion and insurrection.”

Article V

Article 5: This article explains how to add to or change the constitution.

Article 6: This article states that the constitution is the supreme law of the country. It requires all officers of the government to swear an allegiance to the United States and the constitution.

Article 7: This article explains how the constitution would be ratified. Nine states had to ratify the constitution before it could go into effect.

Who will be a “Gideon”


  • christian_clr
    It is amazing to consider that God still has his remnant in our Nation’s Capitol. There are Christian men and women in Washington, who in their personal life, their public policies and actions, and in their leadership and example–stand for Scriptural values and principles and the Constitution of the United States.  These brave soldiers who are at the forefront of the battlefield need our prayers and support.  We must not let them down.
  •  Our mission is based in the grass-roots of America.  As we become informed and involved in issues of local and state level, we are establishing a firm foundation on which our Brethren in Washington can build upon. In addition to the ballot box, we still have access to e-mails, blogs, letters to the editor, and phone calls to State and Federal elected officials.  Too many of God’s people are ‘pew warmers’ when it comes to getting involved in the battle for their liberties.
  • Furthermore, as Christians, it is our duty to hold our civil magistrates to the oath they took to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. Politically, our duty is to America–and no other country. (except Israel). Spiritually, our duty is to Christ and not to any particular religious denomination, ethnicity, or foreign entity. We need to stop playing God in the Middle East; we need to stop pretending that foreign entities are of greater value than our own country; (except Israel) and we need to stop elevating our own myopic understanding of prophesy above the clear teachings of Revealed and Natural Law relating to the principles of liberty and justice for all as defined in the Holy Writ.
  • Our meddling in the Middle East has only made things worse for our Christian Brethren living in those countries.  America’s interventionist foreign policy should focus on defending Israel and those people who are suffering at the iron hand of their governments.  If all of these do-gooders in Washington, D.C. were truly serious about helping the oppressed, they would determine to protect the liberties of the Citizens they were elected to serve.  These folk need to take a good, studious look at the Constitution of which they pledged to uphold.

The Miracle of the United States


 Discovering Ancient Principles

 The Miracle of the United States - Discovering Ancient Principles

Thomas Jefferson may have been the first of our Founding Fathers to look deep into the past to search out the “ancient principles” that would serve as the foundation of our republican form of government. Several of the Founders soon joined in the pursuit including fellow Virginian James Madison, John Adams, Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, George Wythe, James Wilson, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay. These men not only became widely read but they shared their findings and ideas in letters and personal conversations. It took them 25 years of development before the “ancient principles” resulted in the Constitution of the United States.

No doubt, these great minds would be perplexed by how the modern assessment that incorrectly places communism at the extreme left and fascism at the extreme right – as if they were opposites. In truth, they are different names for comparable forms of despotism – the police state. The Founders would place them at the same end of the political spectrum – despotism.

 

The Founders used a much different scale when they measured forms of government: too much government or too little government were the extremes. In political terms, the extreme of too much government would be tyranny while the extreme of too little government equates to anarchy. These men loathed tyranny but they considered anarchy to be even more deleterious. The Founders felt their objective should be to discover the formula for a form of government that would be under the control of the people.

These men also understood how “the pendulum swings” between the political extremes over the course of history – between tyranny and anarchy. George Washington understood this process and refused to be made king while pleading with his unpaid army to be patient with Congress. Colonel Lewis Nicola brazenly proposed, in a letter to May 22, 1782, that Washington become King of the United States. The general found the suggestion abhorrent and admonished his subordinate:

“I am much at a loss to conceive what part of my conduct could have given encouragement to an address which to me seems big with the greatest mischiefs that can befall my Country. If I am not deceived in the knowledge of myself, you could not have found a person to whom your schemes are more disagreeable; at the same time in justice to my own feelings I must add, that no Man possesses a more sincere wish to see ample justice done to the Army than I do, and as far as my powers and influence, in a constitutional way extend, they shall be employed to the utmost of my abilities to effect it, should there be any occasion. Let me conjure you then, if you have any regard for your Country, concern for yourself or posterity, or respect for me, to banish these thoughts from your Mind, and never communicate, as from yourself, or any one else, a sentiment of the like Nature.”

Washington understood the goal of the other Founders and realized they must learn how to prevent the pendulum from swinging to monarchy. As he was preparing to disband the Continental Army at Newburgh, the general wrote to the governors of the states on June 8, 1783:

“It is only in our united Character as an Empire, that our Independence is acknowledged, that our power can be regarded, or our Credit supported among Foreign Nations. The Treaties of the European Powers with the United States of America, will have no validity on a dissolution of the Union. We shall be left nearly in a state of Nature, or we may find by our own unhappy experience, that there is a natural and necessary progression, from the extreme of anarchy to the extreme of Tyranny; and that arbitrary power is most easily established on the ruins of Liberty abused to licentiousness.”

Jefferson was watching the developments from Paris while acting as minister for the Confederation and was frustrated by the events. He wrote to William Stephens Smith from Paris on February 9, 1788:

“We are now vibrating between too much and too little government, & the pendulum will rest finally in the middle.”[iii]

James Iredell of North Carolina, destined to be one of the first Justices on the Supreme Court, was a strong supporter of independence. He also had a firm understanding of the scale used to measure forms of government. During debate at the North Carolina Ratifying Convention on July 30, 1788, Iredell stated:

“There are two extremes equally dangerous to liberty. These are tyranny and anarchy. The medium between these two is the true government to protect the people. In my opinion, this Constitution is well calculated to guard against both these extremes.”[iv]

James Wilson

James Wilson

James Wilson of Pennsylvania, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a driving force in the writing of the Constitution, was soon to join James Iredell on the Supreme Court. He also understood the yardstick used to measure forms of government:

“Liberty and happiness have a powerful enemy on each hand; on the one hand tyranny, on the other licentiousness [anarchy]. To guard against the latter, it is necessary to give the proper powers to government; and to guard against the former, it is necessary that those powers should be properly distributed.”

During debate at the Pennsylvania Ratifying Convention, Fayette delegate John Smilie, agreed with Wilson in this statement:

“I agree likewise with him, Sir, that it is, or ought to be, the object of all governments, to fix upon the intermediate point between tyranny and licentiousness; and therefore, it will be one of the great objects of our enquiry, to ascertain how far the proposed system deviates from that point of political happiness.”

During debate at the Virginia Ratifying Convention, Governor Edmund Jennings Randolph took issue with the proposed Constitution and spoke, on June 6, 1788, in favor of limiting the general government with a small number of powers. Delegate George Nicholas, a friend of James Madison, addressed the governor by warning about granting too much or too little power:

“I believe this, sir, is a new idea in politics: — powers, being given for some certain purpose, ought to be proportionate to that purpose, or else the end for which they are delegated will not be answered. It is necessary to give powers, to a certain extent, to any government. If a due medium be not observed in the delegation of such powers, one of two things must happen: if they be too small, the government must moulder and decay away; if too extensive, the people must be oppressed. As there can be no liberty without government, it must be as dangerous to make powers too limited as too great.”

Alexander Hamilton, a delegate to the Constitutional Convention from New York, would conspire with James Madison and John Jay on a series of essays to inform the people of that state about the proposed Constitution. Those 85 essays were eventually published in most of the states and are still studied today: The Federalist Papers. In Federalist 26, Hamilton wrote about restraining legislative authority:

“IT WAS a thing hardly to be expected that in a popular revolution the minds of men should stop at that happy mean which marks the salutary boundary between POWER and PRIVILEGE, and combines the energy of government with the security of private rights. A failure in this delicate and important point is the great source of the inconveniences we experience, and if we are not cautious to avoid a repetition of the error, in our future attempts to rectify and ameliorate our system, we may travel from one chimerical project to another; we may try change after change; but we shall never be likely to make any material change for the better.

As Hamilton intimated, the Founders understood they were trailblazers for a unique form of governance.

 

P.A.N.D.A.


 

PANDA (People Against the NDAA) is the largest organization in the United States combating indefinite PANDASealBlueBlack-150x150detention without charge or trial. It was founded on January 29th, 2012 to combat one of the most dangerous laws ever passed. The 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA.  This law authorized the indefinite detention of any person around the world, including American citizens, without a charge and without a trial.  Americans can be put in military prison under the NDAA!

PANDA started in Bowling Green, Ohio, by Daniel Johnson and has since expanded to influence hundreds of thousands of people nationwide. It has been covered by WND, the Tenth Amendment CenterActivist PostInteroccupyWestern Journalism and many other videos, radio shows and articles. PANDA has networked with over 100 liberty organizations and several alternative news sources.

 Mission Statement

The Mission is to nonviolently block, strike down, repeal, stop, void and fight the indefinite detention provisions, Sections 1021 and 1022, of the National Defense Authorization Act for the Fiscal Year of 2012, to fight for American civil liberties, to combat laws restricting liberty in the interest of National Security, to support current government officials that are doing so and to engage a younger generation in the politics of the United States so this cannot happen again.

Inform the Public

Inform the public of the dangers the NDAA poses, and how it threatens the very fabric of the U.S Constitution

Stop the un-Constitutional NDAA

Bring basic liberties of due process, trial by jury and right to a lawyer back into U.S. law by blocking the 2012 NDAA.

Increase Political Participation 

When Americans are watching what happens in Washington, bureaucrats can’t slip something like the 2012 NDAA under the rug.“This measure has a chilling impact on First Amendment Rights,” states Federal District Judge Katherine Forrest according to a flyer being distributed by the New Citizens’ Initiative to repeal the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

 People Against the NDAA (PandaUNITE.org) is gearing up for a nationwide fight in 2013 to nullify this very controversial act that uses national security as window dressing to take away six freedoms guaranteed to all citizens in our Constitution’s Bill of Rights!   PANDA warns that the following six Bill of Rights amendments are being violated: First Amendment: FREE SPEECH; Second Amendment: RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS:  Fourth Amendment:  UNLAWFUL SEARCH AND SEIZURE;   Fifth Amendment: DUE PROCESS;   Sixth Amendment SPEEDY AND PUBLIC TRIAL;   Eighth Amendment: CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT!

Aims of the citizens’ initiative are threefold:  Nonviolent nullification or repeal of the indefinite detention sections of the NDAA; an end to laws that trade our liberty for “National Security” and engaging a younger generation in American politics so this can NEVER happen again!

At a recent informational meeting held in Florida, speakers detailed lost freedoms which include no longer being permitted to speak out against the federal government; the discussion of anything which may be deemed an “extreme view;” speaking in favor of what some NDAA advocates call our national symbols and “unacceptable” attire or language at protest gatherings.  Remember the seven Hutaree militia members in Michigan who were arrested and charged.  Even though they eventually were acquitted, the trial sent a chill through left and right wing circles across America

Under the vague provisions of NDAA 2012 and 2013 the President could accuse anyone of being a (belligerent) e.g. (directly aligned with militants or supporting hostilities against the United Stated or one of its allies (by mere political or other association); any activity, statement, writing or communication to arrest and indefinitely detain Americans. Writers, journalists, Americans that disagree with or question U.S. Government or its allies—may under NDAA be subject to arrest and indefinite detention. Hitler used similar laws to intimidate and shut down the press when it opposed the Nazis. Is this where Obama is going

The annual National Defense Authorization Acts signed by Obama are indeed a disgrace and the upcoming 2013 version promises to be no better as an amendment which would have limited Obama’s powers of unconstitutional incarceration was defeated in the House. It appears that the continued liberty of the American people will depend upon the courage of individual state legislators and governors.

  Under the NDAA one may be arrested and indefinitely detained if the president merely alleges that you are a threat or “terrorist.  You no longer have the right to legal representation and are not entitled to a phone call to an attorney or family member,  You can be held for life without being convicted of a crime – an amendment that would have explicitly forbidden indefinite detention was rejected.  You no longer have the right to a trial by jury of your peers.  You can be executed without being convicted of a crime

One can be a suspected terrorist if he speaks out against the government; is active online to show “extreme views”; Love liberty or the ‘radical Constitution;  exhibit ‘unusual actions” that catch the attention of others. 

 “Wake up America; we’re losing our rights and they’re doing it behind Americans’ back…freedoms are being slowly taken away…and they’re doing it with deception and disrespect to all that served.  It’s a disgrace!

Sound The Battle Cry!


The foe is nigh; even at our doorstep.  We need to put our armor on and rest our cause upon His Holy Word!

Joshua fought the Battle of Jericho;  David slew the Philistines;  and even Deborah led the charge against the Canaanites.  So what is our problem?  Should we not also fight against the wickedness of these last days?  Some of the Christian faith are content to change the world by evangelizing and this is most honorable.  Evangelism and most assuredly. prayer. are essential in the battle against wickedness in high places, however, like the wickedness of Sodom, the Lord has given some over to reprobate minds and their ability to discern righteousness is nil.

In addition, there are also Saints that have an eschewed sense of responsibility when it comes to political matters.  This was most biblenoticeable in the last election when a significant amount of God’s people did not even vote!  So sad.  Many qualified young people have been discouraged from entering the political profession by well-meaning Pastors and parents because of the negativity; sort of like the good apple in the basket of rotten pomes.    Yet history reveals that during our founding years, one was required to be a Christian or they could not hold public office.

We often forget that the freedoms we have in the United States do not come from the government, but are derived from our Creator, as gifts to be defended and protected.  God’s  purpose for government is to restrain evil and promote good in society.  When government ceases to fulfill scriptural principle, then God’s people need to take the ‘bull’ by the horn and teach it a lesson or two of how God intended government to function.

For many years a covert spiritual battle has occurred within the halls of our government by which the powers of darkness actively worked to silence and suppress the church with thousands of small restrictions.  These losses of religious freedoms went mostly unnoticed until the forces of evil began legislating more visible limitations upon the Church.  More of God’s people began to sit up and take notice that their freedoms guaranteed by the United States Constitution were being taken away before their very eyes.  Unfortunately many of us still sat idly by, not lifting our banner on high.   Sigh!

If the time comes when the Church is completely silenced on issues of importance, it is safe to say that our government will be less inclined to “promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to us and our prosperity,” as stated in our Constitution.  Instead, it will enforce conduct that is both contrary to the laws of Scripture and destructive in people’s’ lives.  The Church will be gagged from speaking out on issues such as abortion, same-sex marriages and preaching labeled as “hate speech”.

The day may well be on the horizon when our Pastors will be thrown into prisons, Christian soldiers will be martyred, and religious freedom will be a thing of the past.  There are Soldiers of the Cross who are preparing for that very day when they will need to “load the musket” to defend their freedom.  Churches will be resigned to meet undercover, as many do today on foreign soil.  Our children may be tortured in an effort to get us to deny our Savior.  But praise be to God, we can look up for our redemption draweth nigh!

644027_452115158160059_1308777013_nWhat to do; what to do!  Make it your responsibility to become informed of what is going on in the Federal government and your State government.  Contact your elected officials to vote against legislation which purport laws that are contrary to Scripture.  And last. but not least. seek the Lord’s will in running for public office, whether in your city or your state, AND support those candidates who stand and defend our Constitution.

 

He dared to be a Daniel!


anftflg2  soldier  horse480929_453215201383388_744093045_nWe, the People were blessed to witness a single American, a true believer in the Constitution of the United States, take a stand against the tyrannical intentions of the President of this Great Nation.  His flag-waving constitutional spirit was that of an infantry man leading the charge against a tyrannical enemy.  His determination and resolve to persevere were indicative of a Senator who truly took his vow to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States seriously

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, that beautiful blue-grass state, held the torch of freedom for almost 13 hours.  We the American people were stirred with patriotic fervor as we listen to every word that was spoken by Mr Paul and his fellow freedom bearers.  Our hearts embraced the knowledge of our Constitution espoused by freedom loving men who actually represented eagle7their constituents.  Our Patriotic spirit was exhilarated as a high flying eagle upon hearing that there were elected officials who were not afraid to address the Unconstitutional plan of the President to kill unarmed Americans on American soil with the use of Drones.

Senator Paul and his supporters exemplified professional and learned conduct as they shared with their colleagues and the American citizens; even the World.  The information which they presented was informative, educational and within the framework of the concern of the filibuster.  It was indeed a historic event in the history of our country.
They have lit the torch, they have encouraged and inspired We the People.  We must not let this flame dwindle; we must fuel it with our own belief that with God’s help the evils of our nation can be squashed.

The citizens of many states are passing legislation to protect the right of individuals to bear arms.  Other states are creating laws against the blatant murder of unborn children.  We can make a difference.  We are Americans!  A people with a heritage of fireworkewwfreedom fighting men who stood and prevailed against against the tentacles of tyranny. Our responsibility is to pray for our elected officials; to defend the Constitution was secured by our Founding Fathers, and to personally become involved in the activities of our government.  Log on to http://awakeamerica.org.  and http://CCAtoday.com. for starters.  Pick up a copy of the 644027_452115158160059_1308777013_nUS. Constitution and become knowledgeable of the contents , especially memorize the Bill of Rights.

Getting involved in your local government is perhaps the easiest way to ‘get your feet wet’.  Attend city council meeting; participate in open meetings of government leaders in your community.  Write letters to the editor relating to unconstitutional issues.  Download the phone number of your elected officials and make it a practice to voice your constitutional-backed concerns.  Do not faint in well doing.  We are in a battle to defend our Constitution.

Awake Americans!


The following is an except from the introduction to the book “America’s Constitution” written by Evangelist Caleb Galloway

At the beginning of time , God knew that one day a country of the West would rise and become one of the greatest weisgerber   flagnations in the history of the World.  He knew that this nation would rise to prominence because it decided to base itself solidly upon the Word of God.  This Nation was the United States of American.  The Constitution has remained the same and has effectively guided us for over 235 years. however, we are currently facing a time in which liberals, revisionist historians, judicial activists, sodomites,  and others are trying to secretly and slowly take away our liberties.  They are eagerly twisting the interpretation of our Constitution to suit their own agendas and fulfill their own demonic goals.  Furthermore, liberals and judicial activists are trying to use the Constitution to purge all aspects of Christianity from the public square.

In chapter VII  of this book Mr Galloway points out that this is a critical hour in which we find ourselves living.  However. God makes the brightest lights to shine in the darkest of nights.  In order to shine effectively and unhindered, however, we must know the truth.  The truth for every human being  is, first and foremost, the Bible.  Secondly, the truth for every American is the Constitution that was based upon the dependency of Jehovah God.  We must know what those truths are so that we can shine as beacons in a very  dark time in our nations’ history.

Every blood-bought believer in the Lord Jesus Christ needs to become a student of His Word.  This is our instruction book on life, our historical book on the existence of mankind.  The Bible is our guide to obtaining wisdom and instruction in righteousness.  In addition,written within the Holy Writ is listed warnings, for those who choose not to heed to the commandments that God has set forth.  This divinely inspired Book was the resource that our Founding Fathers used in writing our most precious Constitution.    Their desire was to have ‘One nation under God.’

Many American’s know that their Constitution was based upon the Bible, but that is as far as their knowledge extends.  bibleOh, some may be able to repeat the preamble, be familiar with the “Bill of Rights”, and even specific amendments such as the 1st, 2nd, and 10th.  However for the most part we do not know diddly squat about the contents of this great document.  Don’t be too discouraged, neither do the members of the United States Senate and House of Representatives.  To be sure, there are some parts with which the President and his liberal cronies are quite familiar with, the part that they want to go away with.     My fellow American’s we need to make the Constitution the second most important reading material in our possession! In my recent perusal of this document I have discovered some startling knowledge of which I had not before known.  For instance, it is  unconstitutional for the Supreme Court to pass laws governing our Land.  This is the job of the House of Representatives.  Just as the President and the members of the Senate, the Justices can be impeached for improper conduct.  It is illuminating to say the least at some of the reasons that former Justices have been impeached.

The principles of Government set forth in Scripture and incorporated into the Constitution of the United States are indeed under vicious attack.  Read for yourselves in Isaiah 33:22 how God established the three branches of government.  Then turn to Exodus 18:21 to see how that God divided the governing agencies into the Federal. State and local governments.  In verse 27, the principle for the Supreme Court is set forth.

Brethren, we cannot blame the condition of our Nation on the liberals, or on the prince of darkness.  It is we, the American citizen who possess the saving knowledge of Jesus, the only begotten Son of a most Holy God.  Conservative polls indicate that thousands upon thousands of so-called professing Believers did not even vote in the 2012 election.  In fact, it is thought that if all of God’s people who were eligible to vote did so, the outcome of the election would have been much different.  That sore spot being behind us, now what.

As American’s who fear the Lord we need to become informed in the matters of our local, State and Federal Governments.  Log onto websites that have information regarding proposed Bills being introduced into the Senate and House of not only the United States but also of your state of residence, and your local community council.  Become involved in pointing out any unconstitutionality of any proposed legislation.  Call your elected officials and asked them to vote against issues that are contrary to the Word of God and the Constitution.  Finally, intercede to the throne of 12630_475637122493006_1882853627_n Uncle Sam; Lady Libertyheaven for God to have mercy on our Nation; to send revival; to save the souls of those who are determined to destroy the very constitution of which He inspired our Forefathers to write.  We will stand before God and give an account of  what we did to stand against the evil in our blessed United States of America!  Will He say “Well done thou good and faithful servant?  It is not too late – become a soldier for Christ and a defended of the American Constitution.
