My 1987 Poster for the 200th Anniversary of The Constitution

For Constitution Day, here's my 1987 Poster for the 200th Anniversary of The Constitution. I drew it for my high school's 200th anniversary of The Constitution art contest and I ended up being the first place winner. I got to go to City Hall and shake hands with the Mayor, which was a pretty big deal at the time. (a time before I learned that I should have washed my hands right away. Repeatedly)

Here's Ayn Rand on The Constitution:

"Today, when a concerted effort is made to obliterate this point, it cannot be repeated too often that the Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals—that it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government—that it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizens’ protection against the government." - Ayn Rand, The Nature of Government, from Dec. 1963. It was published in her book, The Virtue of Selfishness, and is available to read online at this link.

O que seria de nós ocidentais não fosse Thomas Jefferson que fora tão iluminado com os preceitos bíblico.
