Constitution Day reminds us our founding fathers were revolutionaries

I'm a day late but Happy Constitution Day! My net buddy Andy sent this video to me last night and I went to bed early and slept late, but here it is, better late than never. Andy sent a few appropriate quotes along with it.
"Why is the constitution of the United States so exceptional? Well, the difference is so small that it almost escapes you. But, is so great, it tells you the whole story, in just three words.......We The People." ~ Ronald Reagan

And here's a few extras from Andy for this day after Constitution Day, always true any day.
"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." (John F. Kennedy)
"He who dares not offend cannot be honest."
"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed"
"An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject."
"In the beginning of a change, the Patriot is a scarce man, brave, hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a Patriot."
"Those who trade liberty for security have neither. "
"A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul."
"The government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other."
"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have."
"Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not"
"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
