I Want the Freedom to Be Stupid...

"Being stupid is its own reward." ~UnknownI'll admit, we do live in the country with the most freedoms today.  I try to be grateful for that, but it's tough.  I look back on our Constitution and it both saddens and angers me as to what has happened to that wonderful document over the years.  We've lost sight of what it was supposed to do and mean for the American people....more
