Happy Birthday to the Bill of Rights
On December 15, 1791, the U.S. adopted the Bill of Rights.
It's been slowly eroded since then, with the Patriot Act and other laws borne of fear in the mistaken belief that by restricting our rights we will become safer.
It's a great day to remind our elected officials in Congress of this anniversary -- and the history behind this critical addition to our Constitution.
