Congratulations to the Wilbur Wright School students for their impressive win in the We the People competition. Hopefully, our young scholars are discovering the Constitution's greatness as envisioned by our Founders, not as reinterpreted by today's progressives.
Are the students aware, I wonder, that our current president has some pretty serious reservations about the Constitution, despite his promise to protect and defend it? Check YouTube for Obama's 2001 radio interview, where he laments the Supreme Court's failure to "break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution," which would result in "redistributive change" in society. Surprised?
Obama's first term definitely suggests he regards the Constitution as an impediment to achieving the "fundamental change" of America he promised.
So stay tuned; we might soon see if our founding documents can withstand a full-scale assault.
