I suspect that our government schools failed GK Butterfield when they covered our Constitution, but how can a person have been so disengaged from society as to have missed being educated on the topic by School House Rock.
In the absence of an acceptable education GK Butterfield progressed beyond the limitations of checks and balances. GK Butterfield's Constitution goes like this....
...You'll be taxed and pay, against your will, but today I'm just a bill....
GK Butterfield, bad for North Carolina, and
Anathema to the Constitution and the United States.
