    The 2nd,

    My right to bear arms does not extend past my front door in this "May issue" state that is Maryland.

    Merely own, what about bearing arms?
    Haymarket's "support" of the 2nd Amendment, a right he believes we never had.

    There has been no violation of the 3rd amendment, thus it has not ever needed to be "enforced" so I don't really think it qualifies as poorly enforced, that to me would mean that the right is violated frequently and not respected.

    I'm a big fan of the 2nd, but I think the most poorly enforced is número cuatro, search and seizure has been insanely watered down, patriot act, asset forfeitures, to police searching you without a warrant, etc etc etc

Giving an insane amount of money to a candidate isn't expressing yourself most of the time; it's furthering your agenda. Even when someone is personally motivated, their right to exercise free speech by giving thousands of dollars to candidates is more powerful than that of the average person, and free speech therefore is no longer a right.
    My point was rather that money has always furthered the speech of those who have it. It's use for such, so far as I know, has yet to be curtailed in any meaningful way. The recent ruling only continues an ongoing trend, I think.

    None of those examples are acceptable to me.

    I'm talking complete removal of money from politics.
    No contributions to politicians campaigns are allowed.
    No spending by politicians on campaigns are allowed.
    No contributions to or spending from 3rd parties on behalf of a politician or their campaign is allowed.
    No significant gifts from anyone, including family members.
    Politicians are not allowed to maintain any prior investments of any form, or make any new ones for a period of time beginning when they announce their intention to campaign and extending until 5 years after their last term ends.
    Politicians are not allowed to create or sell any products or media for the same period of time.
    Politicians are not allowed to


    I could go on.

    But, in short, if you decide to become a politician, you give up all rights to any other source of income until 5 years after you leave office.

    **** I dunno.

    And interesting question might be which amendments have been over-enforced or interpreted too broadly

    Re: Which Constitutional Amendment is the least, or most poorly, enforced?

    The answer to this thread is easy - the 10th amendment, lol...

    Because the FedGov doesn't follow the Constitution or amendments in any fashion whatsoever.

    To my knowledge our military forces aren't going around demanding they be allowed room and board in random houses near where they're based...
    I think I read this poorly... I put down the least used Amendment.

    I might agree... the 5th has been violated up the ying-yang...

    I mean your response to the OP makes more sense if you mistakenly thought he was asking for least used amendments.
