We must remember why American was originally founded and why millions of Americans have died and been wounded to protect our freedom. The Constitution is a living, breathing document. It is intended to provide the foundation for government.
The most common misconception is the Constitution provides equality for everyone (which is accurate) that will be funded by everyone (which is fake news).
The Constitution provides the legal framework to build a nation of the people, for the people and by the people. The Constitution describes the responsibilities of the elected FEDERAL officials. There are limits placed on the Federal Governments roles and responsibilities.
The second most common misconception is the Federal Government responsibility is to make all people equal (more fake news).
The Constitution allows the Federal Government to do what the State Governments cannot do. This can quickly be broken into two categories: 1) Protect the Nation; and 2) Support commerce between the States.
The concept of “equality” is something that is earned, not given. Equality is not something we’re given at birth. It is something we earn. The “American Dream” is certainly not a social entitlement program but the direct result of blood, sweat and tears.
We the People cannot depend on the Federal Government to improve our income, give us a bigger house or fancier car. Nor can the Federal Government impede our ability to make a few million dollars, pay for a 10,000 square foot home or buy a Ferrari.
