Happy Constitution Day

Today is the 222nd Anniversary of the adoption of the U.S. Constitution by the Constitutional Convention held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1787. Now more than ever our founding document is under attack from all sides. As we slip further and further from the principles expounded in this great document now is a great time to stop and reflect on the genius of our founding fathers.

Unfortunately it appears that the following quote from Judge Andrew Napolitano more closely represents the current situation in Washington:

Last week, I asked South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn, the third-ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives, where in the Constitution it authorizes the federal government to regulate the delivery of health care. He replied: "There's nothing in the Constitution that says that the federal government has anything to do with most of the stuff we do." Then he shot back: "How about [you] show me where in the Constitution it prohibits the federal government from doing this?"
