National Bill of Rights Day

Constitution

The Bill of Rights was completed in 1791. In 1941 President Roosevelt proclaimed December 15 as National Bill of Rights Day. That is today and most people don’t even know about it. As noted by Ken Paulson of the First Amendment Center (Minneapolis Star Tribune, December 15, 2011) it is interesting that we “celebrate our government’s Declaration of Independence from another government and totally overlook the American people’s Declaration of Independence from their (own) government”.

Let us take a deep breath, step back a bit, and thank our founders for creating a document that was created to protect us from government abuse.

Now all we have to do is use it!

About Doc

I am a Psychologist and a veteran of the Vietnam War. I work with abused children and with agencies which try to both prevent abuse and to empower those who have been abused. I feel strongly about child abuse and take every action I can to prevent it and to support the children I work with who have experienced it. I also feel strongly about politics and especially the course being taken by our nation. I believe that America is at a critical point in its development. How we answer the challenges from Islamic fascists and from our own internal enemies in the media, government, and academia will determine America’s future and the future of our children. I believe that if we don’t take the correct course now, America will go the way of Europe and that we will not reach the potential set out by our founding fathers. I believe that it is now getting serious. My gravitar is from "Darkman".

    Careful Doc,
    The current administration may put you away for such a post. I wish our founding fathers were here right now. I’d love to see what they’d do with situation the U.S. is in.

    jocaasbe,

    I believe that our founders are turning in their graves. The good news is that our current administration may not be around much longer. The bad news is that we do not yet have a conservative candidate that can beat President Obama’s political machine.

    Doc
