Happy Constitution Day!

September 22nd, 2016

On September 17th, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia signed the United States Constitution, adopting it as the supreme law of this land. In recognition of its historic signing, we observe Constitution Day each year. Even today, 229 years later, this unique document remains the standard by which all other laws are measured. In fact, the Constitution is so extraordinary that other nations have used it as a template for their own governmental structures!

What Liberty HealthShare stands for is nothing new. On the contrary, just like America's founders, we believe that individuals, not bureaucrats, are best equipped to make decisions about what is best for themselves and their families. This faith in our fellow man stems from the fact that society functions best when people are empowered to live freely and responsibly, with a limited government working to secure rights that come from God.

The Constitution begins with these three words: "We the People". The placement of this phrase ought to tell you what sort of country we were meant to be. What our Founding Fathers had in mind was a land where the government would "secure the blessings of liberty", but right now, many of those intended blessings are being obscured by growing regulation. Membership with Liberty HealthShare is one way Americans can assert their freedom and live according to their beliefs TODAY. At the risk of sounding like revisionists, we think our founders would approve!

This Constitution Day, take a few minutes and read the Preamble. To keep the Constitution with you all the time, request your own pocket-sized copy. What better way to learn about the past and equip yourself for the future!

Constitution Day is a great time to teach your kids about our nation's founding. Visit the Constitution Center website for resources, lesson plans, videos, and even activities you can attend on Constitution Day if you live near Philadelphia!
