Bill of rights day and a glass of raw milk

From Andrew Mastrocola on the Jefferson WAPF blog:

Raw milk freedom riders crossing the interstate line into Illinois with 100 gallons of raw milk.

“The Bill of rights was ratified 220 years ago, on December 15, 1791. Virginia became the 12th state to ratify the first 10 amendments, and they became law.

The Bill of Rights guarantees that citizens can not be oppressed by their own government. It guarantees freedom of speech, of the press, of religion, of assembly and of petition in one sweeping declaration in the First Amendment. The subsequent amendments guarantee citizens the right to protect themselves, be secure in their home, be granted a speedy trial by jury, be free from unreasonable search or arrest and not be forced to testify against oneself or be subjected to excessive punishment.

All government officers  pledge first and foremost to uphold the Constitution.  These oaths affirm that the rule of law is superior to the rule of any human leader.  Government has only those powers delegated to it by the people.

As a nation, we celebrate our Declaration of Independence with a holiday. We honor those who have made sacrifices in military service. We honor the flag with a holiday. But most Americans take little notice, if any, of the commemoration of the adoption of the Bill of Rights, which define our freedoms as Americans, and sets us apart from the rest of the world.

When Michael Schmidt came to Chicago for the Raw Milk Freedom Ride we toasted Liberty with a glass of raw milk. The glass of raw milk is quickly becoming a symbol of liberty, and freedom,  from oppressive governments around the world….”
