Constitution Day Of The United States

Happy Constitution Day!

Constitution Day of United States


We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Article I

SECTION. 1. All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.
SECTION. 2. The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States, and the Electors in each State shall have the Qualifications requisite for Electors of the most numerous Branch of the State Legislature.
But wait, there’s more!

9-11~ 13 Yrs. Later

The terrorist attackers on the morning of September 11, 2001 took America by surprise.

Islamic terrorists flew American Airlines Flight 11 into the north side of the north tower of the World Trade Center at 8:46 a.m.

United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the south tower At 9:03 a.m.
Both towers collapsed.

American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon- Arlington County, Virginia at 9:37 a.m.

The fourth hijacked plane, United Airlines Flight 93, crashed in a field in southwest Pennsylvania, at 10:03 a.m.

2,996 people died in these terrorist attacks.

The simple truth is that the Islamist extremists who behead and riot and burn do have a choice. They want to fulfill the jihad. What they want is an excuse, and they’ll find one no matter what America does. What it boils down to is that if America does not bow down to Islam or if Islamist extremists feel they are not getting their way, murder and mayhem will result. Why is that cruelty, repression, conquest, terror, terrorism, anarchy and slaughter are considered a logical and reasonable response? When does beheading become a normal response.
Americans need to wake up, before 9-11’s become common place.

Never Forget:
