Today is Constitution Day. In honor of it, American Thinker has a short but intense post about the background of this day. The article, written by Harold Witkov, is entitled "Constitution Day Regrets," which is quite appropriate. What do you imagine would be our Founding Fathers' response to some of the "change" being pushed in America?
On September 17, 1787, the Constitutional Convention met for the final time, and thirty-nine of our Founding Fathers, following a painstaking and meticulous effort, signed their names upon the greatest political document ever penned. Today, in honor of that momentous occasion, we celebrate the observance day known as Constitution Day.
If these great men of yesterday are somehow watching us today, they are no doubt marveling at our robust health and long life expectancy, horrified by the prospect of an impending government run health care takeover, and kicking themselves for not having written into their document a term limit provision for members of the House and Senate.
