In the face of unbridled liberalism's latest push, conservatives stand confused. Some want to modify basic conservative positions and target spending and programs to appeal to demographic groups. Others insist on better tactics, louder advocacy and more of the same.
As a city marked by both "power and forgetfulness," the nation's capital is an important place to discuss and honor the U.S. Constitution, according to Hillsdale College President Larry P. Arnn, marking the college's third annual Constitution Day Celebration on Thursday.
During the birth of the United States, the Founding Fathers discussed, debated and devised two crucial documents: the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. As any school-aged child is fundamentally aware, these two democratic pillars set out everything from the laws of the land to the individual rights and freedoms of all citizens.
"It's always a good thing to talk about the Constitution and especially is it a good thing to talk about it here," said Mr. Arnn at the Renaissance Hotel in the District, where the daylong event was hosted.
Yet in March 2010, Mr. Arnn noted she praised the Founders' support for "certain inalienable rights" in the Declaration after that mandate passed and became the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
