Letter to the Editor
Saturday, April 12, 2014, 9:00 p.m.
 

I would urge all citizens to obtain a copy of the Constitution of the United States of America. It is a slim but powerful document.

The first 10 amendments constitute the Bill of Rights. It is important to read these and weigh where we currently stand.

We hired, through election, our president, senators and representatives, who all swore an oath to uphold this document. Their oath was not to erode this document or to change it to suit.

There is a defined process of amending the document.

Read this document. Contrary to media representations, we are an intelligent people capable of understanding the written word.

Develop your own opinion and decide if the unalienable rights defined in this document are being defended.

Make sure we are not giving away or allowing the rights that made this country great to be taken from us.

Patrick Caffrey

Ligonier Township
