U.S. Constitution 2011 Bable (Lets Talk- 01/07/2011)

   This year you are going to hear much about the Constitution from people who  refer to it like it was a fetish. It will be held up by them like religious fanatics hold up the Bible.
    Attached here are words from a man of the time of the Constitution even though he was abroad in France carrying out his duties as an ambassador. Now this man’s closest confidant, James Madison, is given the accolade as being the “Father of the Constitution” so it is reasonable to assume there was substantial collaboration between them.
     As we go through these times blasted by the folks who are inspired by the words – “The tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of Patriots and Tyrants.” – We should be knowledgeable with his words concerning the Constitution—–
  “Some men look at constitutions with sanctimonious reverence, and deem them like the Ark of the Covenant, too sacred to be touched. They ascribe to the men of the preceding age a wisdom more than human, and suppose what they did to be beyond amendment…But I know also, that laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths disclosed, and manners and opinions change with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also, and keep pace with the times.”
Thomas Jefferson
