September 17, 1787 could have been just any almost-autumn day in Philadelphia – but it wasn’t. On that day, the Philadelphia Convention passed the United States Constitution, a document that would begin governing America on March 4, 1789, upon ratification of eleven states. In its 224 years as our governing document, it has been formally amended 27 times – but many in Congress, the White House, and even the Supreme Court have sought to change it many more times through subtle language of bills and holdings of various cases. Today we ask all of you to always elect – and fight for – candidates who will swear an Oath of Office to protect and defend the Constitution… and mean it. Election Day should always be considered an extension of today: Constitution Day.
