Happy Birthday Constitution

Sorry I didn't get you anything. I almost forgot about your birthday to be quite honest. Seems like we don't see you around much anymore. I don't want this to sound mean really so please try to understand the spirit of what I'm saying. We've kind of moved on.

Now sure, I know you're the law of the land and all that but aren't you really more symbolic than real these days? I mean you go on and on about enumerated powers and the protection of the individual at the expense of the collective but isn't that a little 19th Century?

We have really smart politicians who can fix things and they've promised not to abuse their power. I don't want to be a bummer on your birthday, because I really do like you. I'm just sayin' maybe you're not really that big of a deal anymore.

Happy Birthday anyway.

As a blueprint for a structure of government, isn't it by definition a document asserting the power of the collective over the individual, even as it places limits on those powers?

Wait a minute...bathroom scrawling, the 19th century,no need for government...holy cow, you're becoming an Anarchist! If you find yourself taking a sharpie to the back of a jean jacket, seek immediate medical help.
