The Constitution didn’t die today.

The whole point of the Constitution is that it is above, apart from, and not affected by whirling winds of change. Our interpretation may change and our nation may veer from the course it lays out, but it cannot die.

Democracy didn’t die, nor did the Republic. There was a set back, that is all. And this set back, for it’s high profile and broad reach, gives more energy to those who wish to see it repealed and redone than it does to those who want it kept and expanded.

Today it become crystal clear to ever more people just where the parties stand regarding the health of the nation and the prosperity of its citizens. Democrat leaders cannot hide from the fact they instituted one of the largest tax increases on every American in history during one of the harshest recessions. The Tea Party and lovers of liberty have a common and specific goal to direct Republicans towards. The battle lines have been drawn.

No, the Constitution cannot die. We the people shall see to it.
