    Happy Constitution Day
    Constitution Day is good time to remind ourselves that the Constitution does not presume to grant us any rights. We already had the rights. The Constitution exists to prevent government from infringing on them. The preamble to the Bill of Rights makes this clear:

    No wonder the Party of Big Government doesn’t like the Constitution.

    On tips from Lyle.

    my friends, the constitution wasn't written to restrain citizens' behavior, it was written to restrain government's behavior!
