Rights? In The New America You Don’t Get Any Rights!

by The American Dream

One of the unique things about the Constitution of the United States was that it guaranteed certain rights for its citizens.  Those rights provided the foundation for an era of freedom and prosperity that was pretty much unprecedented in human history and dozens of other nations eventually copied many of the ideas contained in our Constitution and Bill of Rights because they worked so well.

Of course our system never functioned perfectly, but when you compare it to what has gone on for most of human history, it truly was a bright light in a sea of oppression and totalitarianism.  Unfortunately, our rights are now being systematically taken away from us.  In America today, the politicians have convinced most of us that in order to keep us all “safe” we must give up many of our rights and move toward becoming a totalitarian police state.  In the “new America”, you don’t get any rights.  They tell us that giving people rights is too dangerous.  Instead, you get some limited “privileges” which can be revoked at any time by the authorities.  Sadly, most Americans have become so dumbed-down that they don’t even realize what is happening.

How many Americans do you think have actually read the Constitution?

Personally, I went through high school, college and even law school without ever being required to read the Constitution of the United States.

Isn’t that amazing?

Most Americans don’t even understand that they have rights because they have never even read the documents that grant them those rights.

You can find the text of the U.S. Constitution right here.  If you have never taken the time to read the whole thing, you really should.

According to the U.S. Constitution, the following are some of the rights that we are supposed to have….

  • Freedom of religion
  • Freedom of speech
  • Freedom of the press
  • Freedom of assembly
  • Freedom to bear arms
  • Freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures
  • The right to due process of law
  • The right to a speedy and public trial
  • Freedom from cruel and unusual punishments

Unfortunately, all of those rights are under attack in America today.

In most cases, a right is not taken away all at once.  Instead, opponents of these rights take what is known as an “incremental approach”.

For example, we are told that there are certain limits on the freedom of speech.  We are told that we cannot yell “fire” in a crowded theater and we accept that because it sounds reasonable.  But then once everyone agrees that there are “limits” on that right, the control freaks that run things just keep trying to tighten those limits in thousands of different ways until our freedom of speech is whittled away to almost nothing.

It is imperative that we stand up for our liberties and freedoms.  If we don’t defend them now, eventually they will be gone for good.

    What’s the popular quote that’s been going around lately? I can’t recall it off the top of my head, but it has to do with Reagan saying something about the loss of freedom is never more than 1 generation away if we don’t keep fighting for it. It seems so applicable now.

    • “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.“

      Ronald Reagan on June 6, 1984

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.

If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
