Saturday is Constitution Day, marking 224 years since the signing of the U.S. Constitution. It has been 20 years now since Constitution scholar Scott Bradley founded the Cache County Constitution Commemoration Foundation. Since its beginning there have been many events held to celebrate Constitution Day but Bradley says it will be quieter this year due to unavailability of facilities and the economic situation. Bradley teaches classes on the Constitution and this week he has speaking engagements lined up all over the state. Bradley says he’s pleased that more people are becoming more aware and more appreciative of the Constitution but he says some people, including politicians, seem to get it wrong. One exception, he says, is Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul. “For 20 years in the Congress he has been a stalwart,” Bradley says. “It’s not that he hasn’t made mistakes. He’s had some huge mistakes that I’m so disappointed in what happened. “But by and large he has a record that’s far more…impeccable means flawless so he’s not flawless but he’s closer to that than any of the others. It’s just that we find him being deep-sixed by the AP or the other reporting agencies out there.” Bradley says Ron Paul s a real straight-shooter who tells it like it is but he fails to get the attention he deserves.
