    Norman Rockwell captured pieces of America in his work but the Four Freedoms captured America at its finest.

    Freedom of Speech and Worship? Check.

    Freedom from Want and Fear? Um....stepping into some dangerous ground there not supported by our constitution.

    Just sayin...

    That kind of falls into the "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" thingy ;)

    Those are not in the Constitution, either... You are thinking of the Decleration of Independance...

    The Constitution is an interesting document and the exact oppisite of the declaration of independence. It does not deal with rights or goals, it was designed to limit the powers of the state and insure that the individual rights and that of the member states were respected. As set up, the senate was controlled by the states and was the counterbalance to the federal powers. When we went to the direct election of senators, that counterbalance was lost and the limitation of the power of the federal government is now dependent on the latest poll numbers. The powers that be want the Constitution to be a "living" document as they wish to ignore its limiting effect on their wish for total control.

    Those pictures actually make me sad to look at. Those images depict a time of family, pride, tradition............... on and on. Take each one of those Freedom of______________and put in a picture from this year. Sure looks a lot different.
