Constitution Preservation According to US Presidents

John Adams wrote to Thomas Jefferson on 24 August 1815.
“AS TO THE HISTORY OF THE REVOLUTION, MY Ideas may be peculiar, perhaps singular. What do we mean by the Revolution? The War? That was no part of the Revolution! It was only an Effect and Consequence of it. The Revolution was in the Minds of the People, and this was affected, from 1761 to 1775, in the course of fifteen years before a drop of blood was drawn at Lexington. The Records of thirteen Legislatures, the Pamphlets, and Newspapers in all the Colonies ought to be consulted, during that Period, to ascertain the steps by which the Public Opinion was enlightened and informed concerning the authority of Parliament over the Colonies”
What John Adams was saying to Jefferson was this: The dream of the colonists was to create a free and separate country from English rule and the rule of King George III. The colonies would have rights, but that a government would be created with limited rights over the colonies. He was saying then, that we should never forget the documented history of those years. He felt that we, as a country, should preserve this history and make sure that all of the citizenries is informed of that part of our history.

Until we grasp these ideas, we will never have success in communicating with a passion to others that don’t understand what the blueprint was for America. It was not an America that perverted its own laws to have a few in the minority overtake the majority with false security.
“They who would give up essential liberty for temporary security deserves neither liberty or security” Benjamin Franklin

With these elegant and powerful words, Benjamin Franklin summed up a nation that was created for all and who could all partake in its success. We are in the midst of a modern political revolution. Our enemies are in our sight and they are quickly approaching our personal borders. We must be vigilant and we must know our history before we embark on a path to secure the heritage and rich history that was given to every American as a gift from those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the name of liberty.
George Washington wrote, “When we assumed the soldier, we did not lay aside the citizen”.

Our times have changed from those of Washington and Adams. Things happen faster and with more abrupt purpose. We cannot blame time nor current office holders for that change. What we can blame them for is the departure from the intent of what was intended by our founders. We can also blame ourselves for the intellectually corrupt government, with intellectually corrupt men and women in power. We have lost the latitude and longitude that our forefathers gave to us. It is the map of freedom. It is our Constitution that I speak of. This is why we must consider the words of the founders as a starting point to realize what their plan for the future of our country was.

Washington said: “Guard against the postures of pretended patriotism”. The men and women who are forcing a change on the grounds of patriotism are the false patriots. Our country does not belong to them, it belongs to those who believe in the Constitution and who believe that our history is rich in direction and purpose. Washington went on to say: “The name of American, which belongs to you, in your capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations”
As President, Washington knew: “It is of infinite moment that you should properly estimate the immense value of your national Union to your collective and individual happiness….indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our Country from the rest or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various parts”. We never see the conservative pit one group of Americans against the other. The Progressive liberal has succeeded in making this type of political activity work for them while blaming the conservative for the division.

Republicans and Conservatives work for the common good. It was the party born from Lincoln, who saved the Union while the Democrats fought to divide it and destroy it through the question of slavery. Though the Civil War started out as a war over States Rights, slavery was made the cause by those who threatened to divide a nation.
However, the new slavery comes to us in the form of taxation and regulation.

Back in John Adams day, in 1776, he wrote to John Dunlap:
“If I was equal to the task of forming a plan for the government of a colony, I should be flattered with your request, and very happy to comply with it; because, as The divine science of politics is the science of social happiness, and the blessings of society depend entirely on the constitutions of government, which are generally institutions that last for many generations, there can be no employment more agreeable to a benevolent mind than a research after the best”.
The men of our revolution were men who respected the thought of a constitution and the importance of keeping it whole for generations.
In this same letter, he went to say: “If there is a form of government then, whose principle and the foundation is a virtue, will not every sober man acknowledge it better calculated to promote the general happiness than any other form.”

FEAR in the foundation of most governments; but is so sordid and brutal a passion, and renders men, in whose breasts it predominates, so stupid, and miserable, that Americans will not be likely to approve of any political institution which is founded on it.

HONOUR is truly sacred, But holds a lower rank in the scale of moral excellence than virtue, – Indeed, the former is but a part of the latter, and consequently has not equal pretensions to support a frame of government productive of human happiness.
