Americans Are Surrendering Rights This Important Document Was Written To Protect!

If you were to ask the average person on the street if he or she is patriotic, you will very likely be told “yes”. If you were to ask that same person why they believe this is the best country in the world, the term “liberty” would come up close to number one each time you asked the question.

The truth is, however, that however much we say we love liberty, as much as we may claim to support the Constitution, the truth of the matter is, Americans are slowly eroding their own rights; climbing into a hole, if you will, and then pulling it in on top of themselves so there is no escape.

One extremely important part of the U.S. Constitution is the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights is, in fact, the first ten amendments to the constitution.

After the Constitution was created, those who opposed a strong federal government, anti-federalists, complained that the document outline the powers of government but did nothing to protect the rights of the individual.

The anti-federalists agreed to ratify the new constitution on the condition that they (the delegates or the new Congress) protect the rights of the individual citizens by adding amendments to the constitution after its ratification.

James Madison undertook the task of writing such amendments. Fortunately, The Virginia Declaration of Rights, written by George Mason of Virginia, was available and formed the basis for the construction of our national Bill of Rights.
