It is what this country was founded on. Our ancestors fought and died for the tenets it holds. Within the document is the very basis of our freedoms and rights as U. S. citizens. Without it, we would be at risk of a dictatorship or communism, which MOST Americans are against.
The checks and balances in the Constitution keep any one person from having all the power.
Our Constitutional rights are why people are so frantic to cross borders or immigrate to the US. The freedom to speak out against injustice and worship *or not* freely are just two examples of this.
I wish more people WOULD treat it like it mattered.0
