Celebrate Constitution Day

Tomorrow is a holiday – did you remember it? The chances are that you didn’t, because the holiday is mostly forgotten, just like the thing that it’s supposed to celebrate.

Tomorrow is Constitution Day.

One way you can celebrate Constitution Day is to go to the Constitution Day resource center set up by the library of Congress.

A better way to mark the day, I think, is to educate yourself about where the candidates stand on constitutional issues. I’m not just talking about the presidential candidates. There are congressional campaigns this year too, for the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate.

Find the candidates running for Congress where you are at Politics1.

Which candidates support the Constitution’s separation of church and state? Which candidates support the protection from unreasonable search and seizure? What about your right to a fair and speedy trial? Cruel and unusual punishment?

These constitutional issues are all very much under debate right now, and if you care about the Constitution at all, it’s your duty to inform yourself on where the candidates stand.

If you don’t care about the Constitution, well, then would you please stay home on Electio Day?
