    The 5th and 8th should be combined in the sense they both relate to judicial process. I see that as the top of the list as that is what stands between the government and an individual losing his/her liberty or even life at the hands of the government.

    How do you even put a 'rank' on them? The beauty of the Bill of Rights (and what so many foolishly ignore) is that as constituted they protect ALL of them, not just the ones you may 'like'. People that continually attack the 2nd ignore the reality that it puts at risk the 1st and all others.

    The 10th has been used as toilet paper.

    I don't disagree with that. Obviously, though, some are more important than others. If you had to choose between freedom of speech and quartering troops in your home, which would you give up?
