On this day 222 years ago, the Bill of Rights was ratified as part of the US Constitution to secure freedom of the people and to restrain goverment power over its citizens. Without the Bill of Rights, many of the other free states out from under the yoke of Great Britain would not sign on to the Constitution. Today is a day when the US Congress and the President just became traitors violating their oath of office. As the Preambler to the Bill of Rights as stated:
THE Conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution
RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as Amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all or any of which Articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution; viz.:
ARTICLES in addition to, and Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, proposed by Congress, and ratified by the Legislatures of the several States, pursuant to the fifth Article of the original Constitution.
Preamble to the Bill of Rights.
This is the day the Congress and the President drove a stake through the Bill of Rights, our God given rights are under attack by a bunch of delusional tyrants. These rights belong to us and not the Government. This is the time we really will learn the value of the right to keep and bear arms. This is the time were the ballot box may not be the remedy and might have to resort to the cartridge box to defend our liberties.
This is why it is a sick joke the President and Congress did on us. Let no member of the House or Senate not have a Merry Christmas when they return home from their districts. Let them be put to open shame before the people be broke their trust to. If they ignore the Constitution, we will ignore their laws because how they see our Bill of Rights as a G-d D--m piece of paper. We should see their illegal laws the same way. A piece of paper too that has no effect. I just wonder, have we reached the tipping point now. The people are getting ready to push back?
