At 219 years old and counting, the Bill of Rights certainly isn’t resting on its laurels. In just the past year, the document has been at the heart of the rise of the tea party movement, the uprising over airport pat-downs and the debates about the constitutionality of the federal government’s health reform law and greenhouse-gas regulation, and of Arizona’s illegal immigration law, states’ efforts to limit the Phelps clan’s funeral protests and much more. Thank goodness that the founders saw it George Mason’s way and decided to give Americans a written guarantee of their rights.
