Let's try to be constructive now... Happy Birthday Bill of Rights!

Happy 217th birthday, Bill of Rights ...

Now instead of descending into the meaningless diatribe which closed the other thread which started this let's be constructive!

If you have problems with the way the Gov't is following the BoR then what are you doing to fix it outside of ranting online?

In general how do you intend to honor the BoR today?

Personally I have the COTUS on my iPhone and regularly show it to people to explain its workings. At lunch today I talked about it with our new employee from Switzerland who is also a US citizen by virtue of having been born here although she grew up in Switzerland and knows little of the US gov't.

Unless you want this thread shut down as well feel free to contribute on the issue posted or don't contribute.

So what have you done aside from ranting? I am not saying I agree or disagree with your appraisal, just asking what have you done?
