Glenn Beck - Being George Washington...Our Constitution

What follows is an excerpt from George Washington's Farewell Address - Sept 19, 1796
 
"Towards the preservation of your government, and the permanency of your present happy state, it is requisite, not only that you steadily discountenance irregular oppositions to its acknowledged authority, but also that you resist with care the spirit of innovation upon its principles, however specious the pretexts. One method of assault may be to effect, in the forms of the Constitution, alterations which will impair the energy of the system, and thus to undermine what cannot be directly overthrown."

 
In his book Being George Washington, Glenn Beck purposes quite rightly that President Washington warned us against changing our Constitution for reasons that are not necessary. Current day Liberals want our Constitution to be a "living document." In my opinion, they just want to water down the meaning of that document....making it weak and ineffective.
