THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME

As the new constitution was being passed around for ratification opposition began to surface. Some folks started pointing out that the constitution laid out the rights of government, what about the rights of the citizens. Some supporters of ratification seemed to have a problem understanding what the hubbub was about. On the other hand some folks, including Patrick Henry, wanted to know what they were afraid of. Were they afraid that amending the constitution to include what became the Bill of Rights would "use too much paper" when it was sent to the printer

 

Thank whichever deity you're on good terms with that the likes of Patrick Henry held out. Considering what we're stuck with right now, we'd really be up shit creek, I suspect we'd be short the canoe as well as the paddle with no rock to stand on, in crap well over our heads.

I'm still afraid we'll lose our canoes before 2008!

Mr. Bush and his ilk do not much care for the likes of Patrick Henry, methinks...  Lisa  :-]
