"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Today is Constitution Day. The United States has had the same constitution for 225 years (it replaced the Articles of Confederation)

RE: Happy 225!

Here's a conversation starter - does it need updating? I know we've had amendments, but does it need more? Can we expect that a document created 225 years ago in a completely different economy and global conditions should be adequate for today's times?

Although I doubt we could ever agree on the changes.

Yes, it needs an amendment to get rid of the super PACs.

My rule for any and all amendments :
That they each may grant a freedom, but never take one away.

...and that's a lot of candles.
