Today is the 225th anniversary of the passage of the Bill of Rights. Too many Americans don’t even know what the first ten amendments to the Constitution say, let alone the reason why these were so important to the founding of this nation.
On this date in 1787 the US Constitution was adopted by the Continental Convention in Philadelphia and ratified by conventions in eleven States. It went into effect on March 4, 1789.
Many, including our elected officials, don’t know what our Constitution says (which, by the way they took an oath to uphold!).
