RIP US Constitution
Today is Constitution Day. I would celebrate it, but it seems inappropriate to celebrate something which has been rendered practically dead. When 99% of the federal laws on the books are unconstitutional, you might as well declare the Constitution dead. To tear it up at this point would be a mere formality. The only things we follow in it are the technical details on who can run for what office and when they are in office.
