Pledge to Support of the Constitution

Now seems like a great time for all Americans to reaffirm their pledge to the support of the United States Constitution. Lincoln had a statement on the patriots which was in a speech he gave in 1838 that seems to focus on what our forefathers were happy to do. Are we?

As the patriots of seventy-six did to the support of the Declaration of Independence, so to the support of the Constitution and Laws, let every American pledge his life, his property, and his sacred honor; --let every man remember that to violate the law, is to trample on the blood of his father, and to tear the character of his own, and his children's liberty.

-Abraham Lincoln, 1838
