Happy Constitution Day!

And now, a few words from Thomas Jefferson:

‎"On every question of construction carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probably one in which it was passed."

  1. Yay, Constitution Day! As a history nerd, I always feel like I'm the only one who pays attention to such things!
