    That needs to be recited word for word before being passed from elementary to middle school, before being passed from middle school to high school, and before you are allowed to receive your diploma.
    Too stupid to recite and understand the Bill of Rights?
    Then too stupid to graduate. Go dig a ditch or ask if someone wants fries with that.

      Hell, I think that every high school should have a required course for the BoR and the words and thoughts behind it.

      • bikermailman says:

        Back in the day, a semester of Government, including the Constitution, was required to graduate HS in Texas. But hey, we’re just a bunch of dumb hicks in flyover country, what do we know?

  3. Ragnar says:

    Yar man. But we already know that.

    Too bad we can’t roll this up and poke it in the eye, or jam it up the ass, of all the politicians (and the sheeple who vote for them) cops, judges, everyone in Hollywood, pundits…the list goes on.

    Me thinks this will end badly.

    • bikermailman says:

      After a bunch of multi thousand page bills the last several years, I came up with an idea for an Amendment. All bills must have the pages rolled up, and inserted rectally into all supporters of said bill. Failure to do so by each supporter will render said bill null and void.

    10 has always been my fav. But the invasion/war nullified that.

    Excellent post. We should all print that out and read it at least once every day.

  6. Angel says:

    The 10th Amendment is the least discussed and least understood, yet one of the most important.

  7. Alexander says:

    “Originally, if you didn’t own land, you didn’t vote, and there was a good reason for it: because those without property will always vote away the property of other people unto themselves, and that’s the beginning of the end.”

    Ought to be memorized by every citizen. Politicians seem to forget that it was added to the Constitution to specifically denote “shall not” actions by the government. They were very specific in the 2nd, hence the wording “shall not be infringed”. I believe Angel is right on about the 10th…..it’s the one Mr. Lincoln trampled all over and no one impeached him…

  9. truthzzzz says:

    If you want to keep them, it may be necessary to register a few like thinking people to n the next two weeks. Most states have a one month limit before the election required to register to vote.

    get your veterans group, or your gun club, or your church to register some people.
    call you county elections office. Local city hall may register people.

    Or you can just clutch you gun and bible and tell God why you did nothing when the chance to appoint Supreme Court justices of a conservative bent was in front of you.

    Ballots are easier than bullets and ballots are the weapon in front of you right now.

    God gave us our rights. The US Constitution has some of them on paper.
    There are many people who are trying to take our rights away now.

  10. pdwalker says:

    The Constitution and Bill of Rights is deliberately not taught any longer.

    It’s easier to herd people if they are uneducated.
