At night, the pages are lowered into a vault, behind five-ton doors that are designed to withstand a nuclear explosion. The entire Constitution is displayed only one day a year, September 17, the anniversary of the day the framers signed the document." So as you can see just by that fact about the Constitution that no matter how many people don't agree with it, it still has main importance to us Americans.

These ideas are due to previous events such as the Stamp Act, the Boston Massacre, and the .
