America Unhinged: Americans must use Constitution to keep government under control – Brighteon.TV
By Kevin Hughes // Jun 14, 2022

For book author Paul Engel, the U.S. Constitution is a powerful tool that Americans can use to keep the federal government in check.


"The Constitution is ink on parchment. It is not going to get up and slap these people saying, 'This is what I told you to do.' It is our tool to keep our governments under control – to understand what they've been authorized to do and what they've not been authorized to do," Engel told host Dr. John Diamond during the June 8 episode of "America Unhinged" on Brighteon.TV.

Engel lamented that Americans talk about the Constitution, but don't do anything about it and then wonder why everything keeps falling apart in the country. He cited a quote from former President Ronald Reagan to drive home his point: "We The People tell the government what to do, it doesn't tell us."

"Americans need to get back to that," Engel said.

According to Diamond, God has given people the ability to choose their leaders or rulers, quoting the first U.S. Chief Justice John Jay.

Americans need to read and study the Constitution

According to Engel, Jay also used to urge every member of the state to read and study the Constitution and to teach the next generation to be free by knowing their rights and being prepared to defend and assert them.

The author and speaker added that he took it as a challenge and started reading and studying the Constitution. "I began to understand that there was so much about the Constitution that was not being taught and that there were teachings about it that were wrong," Engel said.

This led to a series of events that made Engel realize how constitutionally ignorant the Americans have become, and this gave birth to the idea for The Constitution Study, which he founded in 2014. He also authored a book titled "The Constitution Study," which tackles both the entire Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

The book is written in everyday conversational English and designed for everyday people to read and understand. Engel is putting out articles and videos that deal with constitutional issues on his website, ConstitutionStudy.com. He is also hosting an online study via Zoom every other Monday to read, discuss, debate and talk about the Constitution.

Diamond lauded Engel for his efforts, adding that Americans need to start training their children by putting together homeschool groups and public school groups that have teachings about the Constitution.

The Constitution requires every elected official or appointed officer at both the state and federal levels to affirm their support to the Constitution. But most of these officials, Engel said, have not really read the Constitution. (Related: The Constitution invites us—and politics compels us—to consider redrawing state and local borders.)

Engel stressed that the Constitution should serve as an employee handbook for those representatives who are running at the state, federal and local levels.

Many people seem to be intimidated reading the Constitution. This is why Engel wrote the book "Constitution in 30 Days," which is like a daily devotion to the Constitution. He said people can read it in two and a half minutes a day for 30 days.

Diamond also emphasized the importance of the Declaration of Independence because it serves as a bridge between the Bible and the Constitution. He added that God gave people rights and laws, which the Founding Fathers understood.

The theologian said history, next to the Bible, is one of the most important topics to be studied because if people don't learn from the past they are doomed to repeat it.
