Celebrate by fighting for it!

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Ratified 221 years ago today, the United States Constitution is a gem of governmental genius. It has needed, and still needs, tweaking here and there but it remains an amazing document. I urge you to read it (or re-read it).

Remember justice, domestic tranquility, and the general welfare? Remember liberty? Remember having rights as a citizen?

Let's keep on fighting to restore all this to our nation.

h/t to Adam B at Daily Kos for reminding me what day it is.
