LISTEN NOW!  John, Pat and Steve discuss the fourth part of a six part series regarding the U.S Constitution and Freedom by Judge Andrew Napolitano.  In order to fully understand, appreciate or protect anything that has ever been created it would serve us well to get an understanding of the original intent of the author, creator or inventor of the object.  They continue to discuss that if we are going to truly understand, protect and defend the Constitution it would serve us well to know the original intent of the Founding Fathers when they crafted it.    The Constitution is the supreme law of the land.  Every law that is passed must comply with the Constitution.  In this part they discuss the importance to understand that the federal government did not create the states but just the opposite the states created the federal government.  After the Revolution the 13 colonies became 13 sovereign states with their own government, militia, courts and representatives.  In order to form a federal government they relinquished some of their power but retained the “police power”.  “Police power” is about making sure that legislation is such that it is on behalf of the people and is constitutional.   They continue to share how the constitution says what the job description entails and how it explains checks and balances for all three branches of power; Executive, Legislative, and Judicial.  This document was written by the people for the people.  We have a constitution that begins with three simple yet powerful words…We the People.
