    Yes, liberals always want larger govt to correct the failures of the previous liberal govt. That is how liberals got from JFK to Sanders communism with no shame, no sense of treason, just pure and perfect ignorance!!

    No, but someone has to issue some realistic context. Next James972 will tell us George Washington rode a unicorn.

The Bill Of Rights does not grant rights rather it re-enforces rights that are granted by God or some higher power according to the beliefs of the founders of the USA. Since its a belief I cannot prove that there is a God that grants such rights but that's what the founders believed. Anyway, that being said the purpose of the Bill Of Rights was to prohibit the government from restricting the rights it mentions and if it were to do so than the government would have too much authority. Simply put, the government does not have the authority to infringe on the rights listed in the Bill Of Rights and its not supposed to. That is why, unlike the rest of the Constitution, the Bill Of Rights or any part of it can't be repealed and is scribed in stone. To repeal or change it would give the government too much authority and would thus result in a corrupt government. That is why the Bill Of Rights has to be respected and kept the way it is. For the government to infringe on any of the rights in the Bill Of Rights in doing so the government would be crossing a line it has no right to cross.
    Did you know that, at the time the Bill of Rights was being debated, a Bill of Wrongs was also being debated? The first one passed. The second one didn't. However, the first 10 amendments are amendments, which can also be subjected to change. IMHO, the 14th Amendment is just as important as the first 10.

    Not hard at all. A law that recognizes black Americans as people and gives them equal rights is just as important as the first 10. Actually, what the 14th does is to say that inalienable rights apply to all races, not just white people. Without the 14th Amendment, the first 10 is nothing more than words on paper, because people are allowed to cherry pick who gets those rights, which is exactly what they did during the era of slavery. Black people were not people. They were property with no rights whatsoever.
