PIE R Squared
In as much as the Greek letter “Pi” defines a number that is the ratio of a circle’s area to it’s radius and at the same time is an infinite number, so too the Constitution of the United States of America provides all the necessary elements to determine our general and undetermined rights as citizens.
The Declaration of Independence;” WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
In the Constitution of the United States of America, the lX Amendment says;” The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”
So, how do we make the PIE bigger if there is a certain truth to a formula?
The Boy Scout’s motto is ” Be Prepared ”
Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of Great Brittan said “Those that fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it.”
In a certain book it says “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” and “come let us reason together.”

” Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption.
If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature.
If the next centennial does not find us a great nation it is because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.”
James Abram Garfield, 20th President of the United States of America 1831-1881
