Constitution Day 2009

Today is Constitution Day, the 222nd anniversary of the signing of the basic document that protects our rights as Americans. Please take some time to read the Constitution today, especially Article I, Sections 8-10, which list the powers of the federal government, and the limitations on the powers of the federal and state governments. I would also encourage you to read the Bill of Rights, and compare it to that of our State (which in my opinion is superior to that of the U.S. Constitution).

If you haven't read it for a while, I think you will be appalled at just how much the Feds have overstepped their boundaries.

Do you know of a link to the original OH State Constitution? It has undergone some major revisions in the last 40 years and we wanted to compare.
