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

    Relatively speaking, and in your opinion.

    18th is disqualified from this discussion.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I have not made a detailed study of the matter, but I think that the 10th amendment is the least/most poorly enforced one.

    The first amendment. Wartime censorship and the misinterpretation of "Money=speech" are a humiliation to the first amendment, which is the greatest piece of law the U.S. has. I would've also voted for the 4th amendment if I could've selected more than one option, as the pervasive amounts of surveillance in this country are also a constitutional violation.

    The thing is, money has always equaled speech....it's just that these days we realize how powerful a multiplier it has become, someone tried to limit it, but got slapped down.

    I've occasionally wondered if we need to eliminate money from politics to cut down on corruption. Then I wonder if that's even possible.

    All of them, however I chose the 2nd.


    Any and every law pertaining to the 2nd (guns) is in its self breaking the amendment. The second amendment is perhaps the only amendment that is fully self contained and that requires no further action in any way shape or form. It only needs to be followed.

    in·fringe
    inˈfrinj/
    verb
    past tense: infringed; past participle: infringed

    actively break the terms of (a law, agreement, etc.).
    "making an unauthorized copy would infringe copyright"
    synonyms: contravene, violate, transgress, break, breach; More
    disobey, defy, flout, fly in the face of;
    disregard, ignore, neglect;
    go beyond, overstep, exceed;
    infract
    "the statute infringed constitutionally guaranteed rights"
    antonyms: obey, comply with
    act so as to limit or undermine (something); encroach on.
    "his legal rights were being infringed"


    My belief is that the 2nd means you cannot deny, restrict, or remove ones ability to own a gun period.

    The 3rd Amendment... not even close.

    Well, hence the first amendment, speech has always been, or at least should always be "free." If we are going to say money is the equivalent of speech, and money is not free in any sense of the word, than speech is not free. 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.

    I've occasionally wondered if we need to eliminate money from politics to cut down on corruption. Then I wonder if that's even possible.
    We most certainly can and should. As shown in the link, other countries have already done this.

    What?

    How has that one been violated and/or not enforced?

    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...
