Here’s an Idea!

When Constitution Day rolls around, let’s make sure that we remember what the Constitution actually says, instead of pretending that rights are “privileges,” and that the Constitution somehow drafts us into participating in civic activities.

The incumbent president of the United States boasts about having been “a constitutional law professor” at one of the best law schools in the country. You’d think that he would have known his subject matter a bit better. Oh, and by the way, if a Republican president made the mistake of claiming that constitutional rights are “privileges,” s/he would have been denounced from Boston to Seattle as a fascist.
