Today is Constitution day, September 17, 2016.
On this day in 1787 brave people met in Philadelphia to sign the document and further subject themselves to punishment if the British won the war for independence. [edit: we had already won the war at this point. I was unfortunately thinking about something else when this was written.]
Our Constitution has parts of it that need to be changed. The signing was over 220 years ago. The world has changed and we cope daily with circumstances that could not be foreseen in 1787.
Article V of the Constitution lays out the two methods that can be used to amend it.
Unfortunately many of our officials find it more convenient to ignore it than to expend the effort to change it.
Our Constitution changed the world. It deserves more respect.
We deserve better
