United States Constitution should be mandatory to pass all American High Schools and Colleges!

U.S. Constitution

The United States of America core values are founded in the Constitution. Laws that keep this country prosperous along with a pursuit of happiness that any American can dream and make happen. These values at one time were taught in school. But now, after a President who was clearly against American values, they are almost forgotten by many schools and universities. It’s probably one of the reasons why we have so many problems in society, even to the point of being able to safely express free speech in public.

Liberal progressivism has taken over colleges. Riots are a regular occurrence at colleges. The most recent example was the riot at Berkeley. This past weekend was supposed to be a a pro-Trump rally at Berkeley University. Anti-Trump protesters crashed the rally and clashes between supporters of President Trump and ant-Trump protesters began. The riot resulted in 21 arrests (so far!)

This is not an isolated incident. Riots have been going on since President Trump took office. Liberal anti-Trump protestors have crashed rallies, parades, and anything else that could be pro President Trump. They jump at the chance to shut down free speech. Apparently, they “feel” that free speech only applies to their cause or agenda. And when patriots decide to stand up to the fascist Left, riots begin.

There is a way to solve this. A huge part of the problem is their lack of understanding what the United States Constitution is truly all about.

The United States Constitution should be a required class, not only in all American colleges and universities, but also in the high school curriculum. It should be taught by specialized constitutionalists who have no covert agendas except making sure Americans understand what the Constitution is and why it is important. Any hidden agenda will obviously distort the true essence of the principles of the Constitution.

By adding American core values which separate us from most countries, we can revive the American spirit. With proper education, it will be a snowball effect that will have all Americans working to make America great again.

Young Americans need to realize that the United States Constitution is not just some written essay or something piled up to look nice and pretty at a museum. It is so much more than that. It is the principles on which America was founded. It is a way of life publically stating that all men are created equal. It is a system of laws that give people the power to make their own choices in life. Laws that, if followed correctly, would keep Americans safe from enemies foreign and domestic.

Imagine if American students understood the true meaning of what freedom of speech is, or what freedom of religion is. There would be a clear understanding of the American way of life. Now I am not saying that everyone needs to be conservative or even Republican. What I hope would happen is that it would facilitate an even platform for both sets of values. One where we can learn from each other on both sides of the spectrum and can have platforms and public rallies without fear of repercussions.
