dashersdad, I agree with what you say here, but there are several amendments in The Bill of Rights which specifically refer to "the people", including the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 9th, and 10th. And just because it refers to "the people" which is a plural term, doesn't mean that those rights being protected are "collective rights" as Obama seems to think. Rights really belong to individuals, not collective groups. However, if there is a group of individuals, that group has the same rights as a whole, as any individual within the group has. Thus, any individual has a right to criticize our government, and a group of like minded individuals also can sign a petition, or engage in a peaceful protest, to criticize our government.

Why is the 2nd amendment the only one with reference in it to specifically say "the people"? Which other one is specific to "the people"? Pray for our future.

There are people who really believe President Barack Obama is some sort of cunning political grand-master, plotting out the checkmate ten moves ahead of his plodding opponents. Nonsense. He’s actually President Peter Principle, failing ever upward thanks to the disarray of his opponents.

Just when you think he might be clever enough to score his cheap points off of Newtown and turn back to beating the hapless...
