There are too many examples to list them all, this isn't a left vs right issue so I will pick a left example and a right example but I urge you to
study all the links and links within links.
I'm going to post articles from both left/right and conspiracy sources and they will all show basically the same thing. We have pretty much lost all
Scorecard: How Many Rights Have Americans REALLY Lost?
Preface: While a lot of people talk about the loss of our Constitutional liberties, people usually speak in a vague, generalized manner … or
focus on only one issue and ignore the rest.
This post explains the liberties guaranteed in the Bill of Rights – the first 10 amendments to the United States Constitution – and provides a
scorecard on the extent of the loss of each right.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech,
or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Does anyone here think we still have these rights?
I Will Stand Up For You If You Stand Up For Me
First they tortured a U.S. citizen and gang member …
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a criminal
Then they tortured a U.S. citizen, whistleblower and navy veteran …
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a whistleblower
Then they locked up an attorney for representing accused criminals …
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a defense attorney
The Bush Administration's Torture of U.S. Citizen Jose Padilla
The Bush administration's May, 2002 lawless detention of U.S. citizen Jose Padilla – on U.S. soil – was, as I recounted in my book, the first
incident which really prompted me to begin concluding that things were going terribly awry in our country. The administration declared Padilla an
"enemy combatant," put him in a military prison, and refused to charge him with any crime or even allow him access to a lawyer or anyone else. He
stayed in a black hole, kept by his own government, for the next three-a-half-years with no charges of any kind ever asserted against him and with the
administration insisting on the right to detain him (and any other American citizen) indefinitely – all based solely on the secret, unchallengeable
say-so of the President that he was an "enemy combatant."
Bradley Manning’s conviction under the Espionage Act is the latest development in the Obama administration’s push to prosecute leaks. We’ve
updated our timeline with the most recent events.
Despite promises to strengthen protections for whistleblowers, the Obama administration has launched an aggressive crackdown on government employees
who have leaked national security information to the press.
With charges filed against NSA leaker Edward Snowden this June, the administration has brought a total of seven cases under the Espionage Act, which
dates from World War I and criminalizes disclosing information “relating to the national defense.” Prior to the current administration, there had
been only three known casesresulting in indictments in which the Espionage Act was used to prosecute government officials for leaks.
Again there are too many examples to list here this is just scratching the surface, The Constitution was designed to limit government power, they
seem to have no limit of power so ....
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be
Even tho I'm labeled a liberal progressive I'm a die hard supporter of the right to keep and bear arms and I'm a supporter of militias. I also know
and anyone that watches the news knows this right is under attack.
This fight is divided on political lines generally the left want restrictions those on the right say hell no!
No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be
prescribed by law.
I see no violation of this amendment.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be
violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be
searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
The fact that we have to piss in a cup or take a physical for a job clearly shows we have no rights here:
But the government is flying drones over the American homeland to spy on us.
Senator Rand Paul correctly notes:
The domestic use of drones to spy on Americans clearly violates the Fourth Amendment and limits our rights to personal privacy.
Both Paul and his father are 100% correct on this issue.
Here is a map where they will operate drones from
