You should read it.
Also the Bill of Rights.
Also the Federalist Papers.
It might provide insight in how many Americans think.
I understand the concern of American people. Although I have not read the bills of right , I have done some research on the history of America.
The bills of rights is something many Americans think they have inherited from their fathers.
And I respects it.
My point is , the US govt started to act the other way. The bills of right is written according to common sense and logic and moral rules ,mostly.
But what we see US govt did in Japan , in Vietnam , in Afghanistan and Iraq are not according the bills.
The place where US govt is standing today is not somewhere separated from the past. It is a continuous movement.
The people who saw what is going on in Iraq and Afghanistan and said "we can live with this govt" should say the same thing today. The invasions , the TSA , and recent gun ban are pieces of one chain.
I wish well for American people and for other people all around the world.
But , here is a rule. the people who don't bring the change won't get the change
If you have changed and you are acting accordingly , then there is hope for change.
American pressure pot strategy
