[url]http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/711194/posts?page=1[/url] The Bill of Rights, the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution, was established to protect people's rights, as individuals, from the federal government. Where the 1st Amendment states the government "shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," our federal government has made many rulings barring religious expression in our daily lives (mostly public, but some even private.) A clear violation of the Constitution. The second Amendment states, "The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." It doesn't get any simpler than this. Any law barring the ownership of any firearm is un-Constitutional. If people don't like this, then change the law through the Amendment process, rather than betraying the Constitution and, through that violation, becoming a traitor to the American people. Go back and read this Amendment. The 2nd Amendment, like the rest of the Bill of Rights, doesn't create rights, it simply acknowledges and protects the God-given rights we already have. I would encourage everyone to get a copy of the U.S. Constitution and sit down and read through it. Several things in the Constitution are very clear, and stand in stark contrast to how we are told things are suppose to work. In the following paragraphs, you will see several issues that expose how our politicians have trashed the constitution, making it practically a dead document.

Just thought I'd add this from the post........ [b]"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." Meaning the federal government has clearly defined and limited powers, while the people of the member states of the union, acting as sovereign states, have the bulk of the powers. The central government is supposed to be the servant of the states [notice the word 'delegated' in the above quote from the 10th amendment,] not the other way around. In layman's terms, if it isn't expressly covered in the Constitution, then the central government cannot act on an issue. This outlaws about 60 to 70 percent of what the feds do today. The mass ignorance on what our Constitution says is largely due to our socialistic educational system and the anti-Constitutional, anti-American forces that run our universities and have infested our halls of justice and legislatures. And the liberal press and entertainment industry have helped to promote socialistic ideas and provide cover for these anti-liberty elites who control our systems of government. If people would turn off the 'boob-tube' for just 30 minutes and exercise what few skills public schools did teach them and read through the Constitution, pretty much everyone could understand what our forefathers left us, and how much it has been abused and betrayed by the elites and leaders of today. Is 30 minutes too much to ask so as to take back our freedoms, our liberties, and preserve them for our children and grandchildren? I hope not. [/b]
