    On the Birth Of Our Republic

    The "Republic" is 225 years old today.

    Yesterday, we held a party in Acme to celebrate, hosting several hundred, and later in the evening, we had 110 folks join us for a dinner celebration.  This year's party was the second annual event, and included a car show, and a "Ms. Constitution" crowning.  A great deal of planning and personal time and energy goes into this, as well as resources from the volunteers and donors alike.  In fact some of the regulars here have pitched in to help make it reality.  We thank you!

    Its a pretty big  ....  Deal.

    Celebrating the birthday of our Republic as well is U.S. Representative Tim Walberg:

    "For 225 years the Constitution has been this country's bedrock.  Our founding fathers wrote it not only to address the issues of their day, but with the clear intent that it was to be used to address foreseen and unforeseen issues in the future. I believe we must continue to honor and celebrate the Constitution's principles of federalism, commitment to freedom and protection of individual liberties".
    Seen and Unforeseen.  Indeed.

    Representative Candice Miller offers a little more:

    "225 years ago today members of the Constitutional Convention signed the final draft of our Constitution and sent it to the states for ratification.  Our nation had been founded 11 years earlier on the self-evident truths that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  The Declaration of Independence also stipulated `that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.'  The ratification of our Constitution created the government of the people, by the people and for the people promised in the Declaration.  Our Constitution was truly revolutionary because never before in human history had the rights of the individual been placed before the rights of the king or the state.  In America, the people are sovereign. Our Constitution still stands 225 years later as the greatest blueprint for liberty ever created by man.  Today, every American should celebrate the freedom guaranteed by the self-government enshrined in our Constitution.  Happy Constitution Day!"
    I would echo such sentiment.

    In fact I would be a little more aggressive in upholding the little teeny tiny parts like "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." as a guide.  That tenth part of the bill of rights pretty much has been run over, spit on, and mangled to fit the agendas of politicos from both sides of the aisle for decades.

    Given that these two of our Michigan Delegation were the only ones to even note the 225th birthday of the most important part of our heritage, I salute them. I hope it is not merely sans signification.

    Happy Birthday to our Republic.

    Though, I can live without the ongoing Kakistocracy smoke up the poop chute from Candice, and Tim.

    Facta, non verba: Timmy and Candi.
