The Constitution is only a symbol, or at least that is the case now. When the politicians say that they are going to uphold the constitution, it is a meaningless statement. There is no following of the constitution anymore, in any real sense. If we followed the constitution, 90% of what our government does wouldn’t be done. When politicians talk about the constitution, they mean it only as a symbol. They mean some arbitrary and vague general term which roughly means “The American Way,” which is meant the politicians’ own way that they have determined, independent of the actual constitution or the people. This is part of the way they deceive us. They say “The Constitution,” but they have a completely different/false meaning. They don’t actually mean the document called The Constitution. They just mean some vague idea, and they use “The Constitution” as a symbol for it.
