I cannot believe there are people in positions of power who openly crap all over the document and the ideas that this country is based on. The Bill of
Rights is NON NEGOTIABLE. They are not just guidelines, but rather they are ESSENTIAL to democracy, liberty, and personal freedom. Anyone who cannot
see this should not be allowed to hold office and represent other people. Not everything in the government is open to interpretation, and the Bill of
Rights and the Constitution are some of those things.
They are not just ours, but also those who came before us and established this country. Those who died, by the thousands over the years, were fighting
to preserve those very documents, and we cannot come up and change them for any reason. This is because if they ever were changed, the US would cease
to be what it was created to be, and people would lose rights. That is what this is about, RIGHTS. We have them, because our founders said we had
them, and our whole system is based on us having them. We are entitled to them, plain and simple. People want to talk about entitlement and say that
it is a bad thing, and they may be right in other cases, but not in this case.
Franklin said that anyone who would give up rights for security deserve neither rights nor security...More or less that is what he said. And it is
just as true today as it was in 1776, for those who gave their lives or risked their lives to create something that had never been created before to
the same degree. Americans are forgetting where they are coming from, and this clown who is saying these things is definitely one of those people.
Every single person who loves liberty and freedom should be willing to fight and die for those things, for themselves, their families, and those who
both have come before them, and for those who will come after them. If fighting for these liberties means that we are fighting the very government who
is supposed to protect these basic rights for us, then so be it.
The Constitution is quite clear, and all oaths of enlistment are quite clear, that no matter where the threat to liberty comes from, within or
without, it must be opposed. This is why we have a 2nd amendment, because that day when the people must oppose the government WILL come, sooner or
later, and the people must have a way to defend their liberties and rights. This is so simple a child could understand it. And even though there are
people who do not care that others died to give them these liberties and rights, and gave them a roadmap on how to preserve these rights, hopefully
many still do.
Our government is so hypocritical it is ridiculous. They want us to give up our lives via the military to fight in other countries for the
"preservation or establishment of freedoms and liberties," yet they are slowly stripping those very things from us at home, as we speak. That should
make everyone MAD. You should be angry at this. This type of thing should not be stood for. If it were just another political idea, something to be
debated, one should not get angry. But this is something that is essential to our freedom. This is something that is non-negotiable, which means that
the idea is already perfect, and should not be tampered with.
