The Most Important Amendment

Unless we stand up and make it clear to our elected IDIOTS on Capitol Hill and the White House to keep their hands off of our bill of rights.Then when the second amendment is gone, the other amendments will follow in short order (executive order that is) along with rest of the Constitution. The Declaration of Independence will become a fairy tale to tell our grand children about with Once Upon a Time but with no Happily Ever After ending.

We all know the term "The Bill of Rights" which are the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution although few of us (including me) could name them.

Hint: None of them start "Thou shalt not …" Rather they tend to start "The Government (or Congress) shalt not …" Keep that in mind.

The First Amendment is a catch-all of rights upon which the Congress may not trample: It protects an individual's freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of the press, as well as the right to assemble and to petition the government.

The American press...
