The first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution – the Bill of Rights – protect individual liberties such as our right to a jury trial, equal justice under law, and just compensation for private property taken for public use (eminent domain).
Lawmakers have a sworn duty to defend the Constitution and a moral duty to understand opposing sides of issues and create public policy that promotes economic development while protecting the health, safety, welfare and environment of citizens.
Members of Congress: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
Federal Judges: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm), that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent on me, according to the best of my abilities and understanding, agreeably to the Constitution, and laws of the United States. So help me God.”
Big builders, banks, insurance companies and tort reformers have invested heavily in lobbying and political influence to advance their own agendas and interests at the expense of ours. And their accomplices in government have failed the taxpayers by dismantling common sense regulations.They have been rewarded handsomely while stealing our Constitional rights.
To counteract this threat, citizens must exert their moral and civic duty to unite, share their views with lawmakers, hold them accountable, and replace them if need be.
