On this date in 1789, Virginia Representative James Madison addressed the First Congress, proposing a total of twenty amendments to the newly-ratified United States Constitution. These amendments were eventually condensed to twelve, ten of which were ratified by enough states to become the Bill of Rights as we know them today.

Very good.

So today is the day to take a quick stroll through the Bill of Rights. How many are in force?

One political party would happily repeal all of them, and the other party wouldn't make much of a fuss.

And we are told to just keep voting.
