In 2010, the current crop of GOP federal representatives made a big show of sounding out the words of our Constitution on CSPAN. They used the word “read.” However, they immediately set out to destroy our post office system. Thus the conclusion can only be that none of the words entered or stopped in their brains, and the process of “reading” was not involved.
The post office system is not a business nor is it an option. The writers of the Constitution believed that it was a necessity for an informed citizenry, even the most rural members, to have access to the news. Thus, the establishment of “post offices and post roads” was written into Article I. It is possible to find the section numbers by actually reading our Constitution. It is not a long document.
Pay attention to the first three words. They describe the government that so many now are complaining about and debasing. The government is YOU, unless you are a nonvoter. You are responsible.
Couldn’t it be said that nonvoters, by shirking their responsibility, have voluntarily withdrawn from the American experience of self-government?
