Interesting that we have a Federal holiday for thumbing our noses at England, but the anniversary for founding the government for our country, Constitution Day, goes unmarked with barbeques, fireworks, and intoxication. This year is the 225th one.
Not so long ago I read the Federalist Papers. It was an interesting look at how some Founding Fathers responded to complaints about weaknesses and overreach in the Constitution. I hope most people read the federal Constitution, their state Constitution, and the Federalist Papers every few years.
