Celebrating the 220th Anniversary of the signing of the Constitution of the United States of America, and for other purposes.

Whereas the Constitution of the United States was subsequently ratified by each of the original thirteen States;

Whereas the Constitution of the United States was drafted in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty for citizens of the United States;

Whereas the liberties enjoyed by the citizens of the United States today are rooted in this cherished document that gave birth to this Nation;

Whereas the Constitution of the United States serves as the foundation for citizens of the United States to accomplish a level of prosperity, security, justice, and freedom unsurpassed by any other country;

Whereas the Constitution of the United States is a model for establishing freedom in other nations;

Whereas the Members of the House of Representatives take an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States; and

Whereas September 17, 2007, is the 220th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution of the United States: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives--

(4) recognizes the Constitution of the United States as the source responsible for our Nation's ability to withstand calamity and preserve national stability, or as Thomas Jefferson wrote: `Our peculiar security is in the possession of a written Constitution.'; and
