I know it’s offensive to a lot of people when someone says that the Constitution is just a piece of paper. When I say it, it’s not to suggest that it doesn’t matter if we ignore it. I find it appalling that we don’t honor the rights that it attempts to protect. Saying that it’s just a piece of paper is simply facing the reality that you shouldn’t put your faith in a piece of paper to do anything. Each of us has to work to protect our rights. This July 4th, I suggest you declare your personal independence from the State. It may not be much more than a statement for now, but freeing your mind is an important first step.
The idea for today’s cartoon was suggested by a Richard Onley. Thanx, Richard.
