United States Constitution Day

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Today, September 17th is officially United States Constitution Day. I've included links below to the National Archives and another informational website where you can find the full text of the Constitution and all amendments as well as articles on the history of the writing and ratification of this important document. I believe that every American should take the relatively short amount of time it takes to read our Constitution. Then do everything in our power to protect and defend it.

I think the Repubicans (not a typo) took the constitution and used it to roll a fat one and then smoked it down. I mean, they can do whatever they want, right?

Well it was ole Dubya that allegedly said that the Constitution is just a goddamn piece of paper. Whether he said it or not he has certainly acted like he believes it. He's done a fine job of shredding it.
I'm a federal employee and I had to take the same oath that he did. Personally based on some of the things he's done, he's in violation of his oath. Just my opinion.
