Compare and contrast

The US Constitution, signed on this day 225 years ago by the Constitutional Convention that consisted of representatives of each state, elected by that state for that purpose, and the Consolidated versions of the Treaty on European Union and the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, signed at various times by various Ministers without any reference to the electorate back home. (Or hardly any reference.) Americans often carry a copy of the Constitution and the Amendments in their pocket or briefcase. Imagine carrying the Consolidated Treaties around!!!!
