The Constitution

Why do we trust our government to protect and defend the constitution of the United States? Think about it. There are thousands of laws on the books that the people must follow but the constitution is really a set of laws for us. It is a set of laws that our government must follow. The constitution is the only power check we really have against an overbearing government yet we lazily expect them to protect it for us. Why would they want to protect the very laws that act as their shackles? They don't and that's why it is now and it always has been up to the people to protect the constitution. More than ever we need to take our role as the protectors of our rights seriously.
