September 17: Celebrate the Constitution before it is no more

Constitution Day is celebrated on September 17th each year to honor and commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution in 1787. The Constitution is the foundation of the American system of government and represents the principles and values of this great nation.

Just this week, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham attempted to suspend the Constitution because she was tired of gun violence. What she tried to do is a direct violation of her vow to uphold the Constitution. Using executive power should NEVER be implemented because a Governor, Mayor or President issues some directive from their office.

The good news is the Sheriff in Albuquerque held a press conference and stated he nor his officers would uphold the Governor’s executive order because the Constitution was still valid and the law of the land. Plus he had vowed to uphold it when he was sworn in.

Thank God the Sheriff stepped up to the plate!

The Constitution is a very rare document and it appears since its inception, the bad guys have tried to eradicate it, remove it, or water it down. It is every generation’s job to uphold it, protect it and educate others on their Constitutional rights.

We encourage Eye’s readers to participate in a celebration of our Constitution to reflect its significance.

The local chapter of Citizens Defending Freedom has planned a special event and we hope you’ll participate. Bring your friends, family members, neighbors, or anyone who needs to understand this gift given to all of us as American citizens.

The flyer is below. We hope to see our fellow citizens there where we can bring unity and revive our national identity through our common bonds and shared values.

  1. It’s great to remember the Constitution and the and the erosion of unconstitutional measures by a growing groups in the federal and state governments. The Constitution and the first 10 Bill of Rights were a foundation of the freedom. GreatAmerican
