Know Your Bill of Rights

Later today,  Obama is expected to sign into law the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which will allow American citizens to be detained by the military indefinitely without being charged. This will basically eliminate our constitutional rights as guaranteed by Amendments 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.  Ironically, today December 15th is Bill of Rights Day.

Original Ten Amendments: The Bill of Rights

Passed by Congress September 25, 1789.
Ratified December 15, 1791.

Amendment I

Freedoms, Petitions, Assembly

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.

Amendment II

Right to bear arms

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 infringed.

Amendment III

Amendment IV

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.

Amendment V

Rights in criminal cases

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb, nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Amendment VI

Right to a fair trial

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed; which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defence.

Amendment VII

Rights in civil cases

In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

Amendment VIII

Bail, fines, punishment

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

Amendment IX

Rights retained by the People

The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X

States’ rights

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.

    Now you know they don’t want to stop all speech, just our speech. They want to spew their lies and propaganda. They only want the truth squelched. They want to work people into a frenzy and scare them where they will give up their rights for some peace, the only problem with that is it doesn’t work. You will only be defenceless when they rise up against you.

      You hit the nail on the head there, Cindy. The recently passed NDAA & the proposed SOPA/PIPA legislation will only help the government keep the lid on the truth.

    Thank you for this site. I happened upon it and I’m glad I did. I;m so very upset at the state of our beloved country. I just hate what these leftists are doing to the country I dearly love. I’m so sick. I pray we can get her back. I fear that if mr. obama has his way we will all become communistic. I think he should be tried for treason on the things he is doing with the muslim brother-hood. I think he should be arrested. Then big mouth bidden is in and he is no better. We NEED them out.

    • You’re welcome, Cindy. I agree with your sentiments regarding our beloved country…that’s the reason this site exists. It’s late, but it’s not too late for us to take back our country.

      I agree that Obama must go, however we can’t just replace him with a Republican who basically has the same agenda and principles as Obama does. That’s what we’ve been doing in this country for over the past 40 years and is one of the reasons we’re headed down the road we’re on.

      I feel Ron Paul is the only candidate who can truly represents us, who actually cares about America and can guide this country back to within it’s Constitutional framework, as the Founders intended.

      Obama is a traitor to the American people and should be tried for treason.

    • Hi Bob,
      If they’re not awake yet, they probably never will come around. We lost a substantial chunk of our constitutional freedoms today & so few people seem to realize it….or even care. It’s truly a dark day for America.

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.
