Bill of Rights Day

Bill of Rights Day is December 15. It was this day in 1791 that the first 10 Amendments (Bill of Rights) to our U.S.A. Constitution went into effect. Our California Constitution also has a list of rights in Article I. Neither of these includes all of our rights (liberties). Read them, enforce them, or lose them.

    In reality, 11 of the 12 amendments from the Bill of Rights passed at 13 states. The Congressional Apportionment Amendment has 10 of 13 states and when Kentucky became a state, they also voted for all 12 amendments. In fact, the Congressional Apportionment Amendment gives you better representation in the House of Representatives and is the true first amendment. Google Ratified Congressional Apportionment Amendment. Connecticut we’re told in history never voted for the 12 amendments of the Bill of Rights. In 2011, Connecticut’s Archivist signed off on the 1790 vote they found in their archives that clearly shows they ratified the amendments. Their vote was lost for 220, misfiled 10 years in the past under revolutionary war documents (who would do such a thing is a mystery but now that we know they voted, we have to apply that vote to 1790 and that ratifies the amendment.)

    Seems democrats care about every other right except "the right to bear arms". Ever wonder why?

    The only right that keeps them out of every aspect of our lives.

    The Bill of Rights looks like it was written by a crazed, right-wing militia member living in an isolated compound. It

    Tell that to Duck Dynasty, his right to free speech was infringed.

    No such things as rights anymore……

    I don`t watch the show by the way.

    The Bill of Rights, including the 2nd Amednment, does not grant any rights; it simply recognizes rights we have just because we exist. Even if they could repeal the 2nd Amendment, the right would still exist (and would even still be consitutionally protected by the 9th Amendment).
