It’s Constitution Day in America and Twitter is loaded with many patriots expressing their views of the incredibly important document. It’s the backbone of our form of government, one that keeps restraints on those in power so they cannot oppress American citizens.
At least that’s what was intended. Today, too many are attempting to use the Constitution to place more restraints on citizens and grant broader powers to Washington DC. Senator Rand Paul has been one of the strongest proponents of the Constitution’s restraints on government and laid down a great quote today. Grammar aside, the sentiment is strong.
“We should never forget the Constitution wasn’t written to restrain citizen’s behavior. It was written to restrain the government’s behavior.”
Happy #ConstitutionDay. We should never forget the Constitution wasn’t written to restrain citizen’s behavior it was written to restrain the government’s behavior.
