In case anyone missed both of these speeches and has the interest, I recommend viewing both of these as they come from men not only passionate about our constitution but with an up close and intimate knowledge of why America needs to stay true to the words written in the constitution.
They gained that understanding not from words written in a book nor views of others but by questioning and learning for themselves as well as from a less privileged childhood and family backgrounds where freedoms were limited.
Theses two speeches are both worthy of study in schools for their real understanding of what patriotism, our founding purpose, congress, and in particular the Senate should be about.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) on U.S. Senate: “If this body isn’t capable of having those debates there will be no place in this country where those debates can occur.”
An excellent speech by Rubio. Kudos.
A second equally important commentary from the view of the Afro-American prospective is this one by Senator Tim Scott.
