Writes Tom Woods:
It was Constitution Day, yesterday, folks.
And that reminded me of a story.
The only time I’ve ever been on with Sean Hannity was years ago when he had a program with the now-deceased left-liberal Alan Colmes.
We were discussing my book The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History.
Hannity opened the segment by deploring how little history Americans know, and celebrating the creation of Constitution Day by the federal government that year.
We never had a chance to get back to that point, since the rest of the time I was answering the hosts’ questions. But here’s the dark secret of Constitution Day:
The federal government has no delegated power to tell any educational institution what it is to teach on any particular day.
It’s rather bizarre to teach about the Constitution through a means that violates that very document.
Actual way to teach the Constitution (and many other things)?
