To all my friends.

Today is a serious day.

It is a fun day.

Even if you don't live in America, this is the day I like to make sure all of you know the constitutional documents!

Here is a link to the constitutional documents:

http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/charters.html

If you don't know them or haven't read them go there and read.

Also here is a link to the best collection of Thomas Paine, a man who single handedly spurned our country into action by garnering public support, a man who single handedly saved the constitutional army from those who were leaving its service (George Washington read one of his pamphlets out loud, convincing more than half the army to re-enlist - Washington himself said without that pamphlet, it would've been all over).

I know my brit friends may call him a traitor ;D

But nuts to you!Very Happy

He's my hero!

If you do not own this book or one like it, you will never understand America. It is the simple truth. At the very least, rent it from the library.


I hope you all have a safe weekend Very Happy
