Categorization of Posts
We allow articles to be classified in logical groupings based on the author’s opinion. More than one category may be selected, but it is not recommended that it be more than three. Many articles cover more than one topic or have the complexity needed to be classified under more than one. These classifications allow anyone to see all articles classified by authors under any one category.
As Americans we have the assurance of a stable society that comes from the foundation documents of our Country. We argue that all our rights originate and continue their relationship to our Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We categorize articles based on a “best fit” into this framework. From time-to-time we will add or delete categories based on internal evaluations.
There is a good chance that if you are unsure of just how your article fits, it fits under the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights is so integral in our daily rights that it is taken for granted by many. Few younger citizens have ever known any other governmental system and lack the knowledge or experience to know just how unique our freedoms are today.
The construct of our government, our civil liberties, our rights as citizens all go back to just these two documents. Other countries try to replicate the magic of these two documents, but none have. The collective genius of the men who came together in Philadelphia to create our Constitution made the documents unique and it has stood the test of time.
By contemporary standards it is not perfect, but it is as close to perfect as any foundational document for nation has ever come.
