Oh, that old thing

Happy Constitution Day! Our national blueprint is 223 years old today. Here are some interesting facts about the document, including:

John Adams referred to the Constitution as “the greatest single effort of national deliberation that the world has ever seen” and George Washington wrote to the Marquis de Lafayette that “It (the Constitution) appears to me, then, little short of a miracle.”

Now if we could just get our current administration to actually adhere to it. Oh there I go again, wishing for the impossible!

(and the gov't hasn't figured a way to tax them yet, or take them away from US and redistribute them to others).

Still, I agree 100%!
