"We, the people" is a lovely statement. Google the rest.

Yes. Haifux is indeed one of these concepts. If you think Haifux is a
Guava, then Haifux is a Guava (so does the zionism, btw).

Well, this is mentioned once in a while (especially when we discuss
the "charter" of haifux).
But fear not!
We the People of Haifux, in Order to form a more perfect LUG,
establish clux, ensure domestic Open Sourceness, provide for the
common creatives, promote the general Welfare, and secure the
Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and
establish this Constitution for the Haifa Linux User Group.
(and starting from this day onward, let it be known that Guy Keren is
our founding father).
