The government created by the Constitution has failed to protect us because we have failed to defend it. If our government official honored their oaths to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, we would still be living in the land of the free.
The Constitution was written to limit the potential abuse of power by the Federal government. We cannot expect the government to police itself, we must take the responsibility to hold our elected officials accountable.
Without adequate representation the voices of the people cannot be heard by those we have elected to be our servants. The Congressional Districts which represented 30,000 people in 1789 now represent an average of over 700,000. As the size of the Districts continue to expand so does the nation's debt and the erosion of God given rights. In order to reverse the direction we are headed we need to shrink the size of the Congressional Districts and increase the representation of the people.
The Constitution was intended to be a rulebook to govern the government. The voices of the people are no longer being heard by our Congressional Representatives. If we fail to hold them accountable we have no one to blame but ourselves.
