Senator Calls For Mandatory Constitutional Education
Byrd carries a copy of the Constitution in his breast pocket — over his heart —
and often waves it on the Senate floor. He lamented in a recent speech that even
some of his colleagues in Congress didn't know fully what it said. "An informed
public is our best defense against tyranny," he said.
Pretty strong words for a former member of the KKK.
If the Constitution was taught the way that our Founding Fathers intended and people actually listened, I doubt that we'd re-elect more than a handful of our Congressmen to Washington. Thus, I don't see this happening any time soon, and if it does happen, the party in charge at the time will certainly twist the cirriculum for their own purposes. How many different ways can one twist "Congress will make no law..." or "...shall not be infridged"?
