Constitution Day 2009

Constitution Day 2009

Happy Constitution Day. Today marks the anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. Officially created in 2004, the unofficial holiday has roots that reach back over 70 years, intertwined with Citizenship Day. Written in what is now called Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the United States Constitution shares its place of creation with the Declaration of Independence. Though written in 1787, the Constitution was not ratified until the following year.

Today is Constitution Day, the 222nd anniversary of the signing of the basic document that protects our rights as Americans. Please take some time to read the Constitution today, especially Article I, Sections 8-10, which list the powers of the federal government, and the limitations on the powers of the federal and state governments. I would also encourage you to read the Bill of Rights, and compare it to that of our State (which in my opinion is superior to that of the U.S. Constitution).If you haven't read it for a while, I think you will be appalled at just how much the Feds have overstepped their boundaries.
