Letter: Why do the Democrats always want to take away our rights?


Everyone needs to do some homework, and read the Bill of Rights. I did and learned a lot. There are 27 amendments and everyone should read them.

Amendment 2

• The Right to Bear Arms

A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.

I didn’t know of this. They actually outlawed liquors.

Amendment 18 – Liquor Outlawed

(Ratified January 16, 1919)

1. [After one year from the ratification of this article, the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors within, the importation thereof into, or the exportation thereof from the United States and all territory subject to the jurisdiction thereof for beverage purposes is hereby prohibited.

2. The Congress and the several states shall have concurrent power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

3. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of the several states, as provided in the Constitution, within seven years from the date of the submission hereof to the states by the Congress.]

No where does the Bill of Rights say that you have the right to healthcare or to drive a vehicle.

The police must protect you.

More people are killed by drugs, drunk drivers, smoking, abortion, and many other things. Quit letting our government take away our rights little by little.

How do the career politicians with a salary of $174k become multi millionaires. Lets make it a requirement that all congressmen must supply yearly tax reports and health care document like they want the president to do!

Just remember: What the politicians promise as free, all working people pay for it.
