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, butwhen 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
Isn't that amazing?
