Taking note of history - American citizens vote for the next President of the United States

I'm writing this brief blog piece today to record the fact that US citizens will go to the polls today (some already have) and will cast their ballots for the next President of the United States.  Every four years,  Americans of voting age, have the right to vote for the candidate of their choice.  Democracy and its leadership depend upon basic Constitutional rights. The public opportunity for individual citizens to vote is one of the most prized rights we share equally.  One citizen, one vote. 

We've put together a fingertip
"web notebook" version of the country's key documents by which we govern and live our daily lives by in this American democracy.  The documents are some of the most powerful thoughts and ideas ever put to paper by humans in search of community, freedom, justice, human rights and self-determination.  They remain the essential foundation and building blocks for all citizens in pursuit of a better life for themselves and for future generations to come.  And today is a perfect time to reflect upon the wisdom of the first American citizens and their leaders.
