I have an awesome friend, Chad Kent. He is now a contributor to The Blaze. But, that’s not what this post is about. It’s about the article that Chad wrote for The Blaze and the interview with Snowden that you, yes, you, need to see.

So, just click HERE and go read/watch it.

If you don’t care what the government can/will do to you, then just keep on with being blissfully ignorant, until it’s too late. That’s how most people roll, in most countries, especially where the governments get all tyrannical and they’re all like, “Whoa! I didn’t see THAT coming at all!!” Yep. Over and over and over again in history.

Know where you stand.

I have a friend, Chad Kent, who goes around the country giving talks on the Constitution. He makes it relevant, accessible, and helps anyone and everyone understand it. If you read my blog, you know how much I love the Constitution (and The Declaration…buy my book here), and so does Chad. Read on!

At a time when so many people don’t care too much about current events, it can be hard to explain why the heck our Constitution matters.  Well the Constitution Revolution segment from last week’s Chris Salcedo Show will help you out with that:

Here is the John Trenchard quote I mentioned in the clip:

“The Experience of every Age convinces us, that we must not judge of Men by what they ought to do, but by what they will do; and all of History affords us but few instances of Men trusted with great Power without abusing it, when with Security they could. […]  For these Reasons, and convinced by the woful and eternal Experience, Societies found it necessary to lay Restraints upon their magistrates or publick servants, and to put Checks upon those who would otherwise put Chains upon them.”

Just like we lock our doors at night to protect ourselves from other people, we need to take steps to protect ourselves from the people in our government.  That’s the idea behind our Constitution – we restrict the power of government because history shows us that if we don’t that power will be used against us.

It’s very simple: we should do our best to protect the Constitution because the Constitution protects us.  Without it, we are at the mercy of the people who run our government.

Don’t forget to listen to the Constitution Revolution LIVE every Saturday on The Blaze Radio!

Okay, people, this is a fantastic way to take bites of the Constitution without getting overwhelmed. Chad Kent is brilliant about the Constitution. We need everyone in America to be this educated…and it takes time. Thankfully, he helps you get your feet wet before jumping right in.

Have you been wondering if the President can legislate? Can he do whatever he wants with the laws Congress passes? Well, no…not really. I”ll dig deeper into this next week, but for a nutshell…literally in a one minute segment…click HERE and listen to his Constitution Minute.
