Question #17: Do you think the Constitution is out-dated - standing the test of time?
No, I don’t think the Constitution is out-dated. I believe the Constitution can stand the test of time. I support our Constitution 100%. I am a Constitutional Republican.
If something stands the test of time, it proves its value over a long period of time and does not fail or go out of fashion it has stood the test of time.
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
The Constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States of America. Empowered with the sovereign authority of the people by the framers and the consent of the legislatures of the states, it is the source of all government powers, and also provides important limitations on the government that protect the fundamental rights of United States citizens.
‘The Constitution, originally comprising seven articles, delineates the national frame of government. Its first three articles embody the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress (Article One); the executive, consisting of the president (Article Two); and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts (Article Three). Articles Four, Five and Six embody concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments, the states in relationship to the federal government, and the shared process of constitutional amendment. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. It is regarded as the oldest written and codified national constitution in force.’

Celebrating the Constitution -
To commemorate the September 17, 1787 signing of the Constitution of the United States, Congress had designated September 17th of each year as CONSTITUTION DAY and September 17-23 of each year as CONSTITUTION WEEK.
In 2004, Public Law 108-447, Section 111 was passed requiring the following:
"Each educational institution that receives Federal funds for a fiscal year shall hold and educational program on the United States Constitution on September 17 of such year for the students served by the educational institution.
....each Federal agency or department shall provide educational and training materials concerning the United States Constitution to each employee...on September 17 of each year."
In keeping with these congressional mandates, recent presidents have solicited help from federal and local government leaders as well as civic and religious leaders to hold events to commemorate the occasion.
We encourage all citizens to use their influence to organize and support programs that honor the Constitution.
