    On this Memorial Day, lets pay tribute to the great Third Amendment to our Constitution. Our founding fathers thought it was so important that they listed it as our third most valuable freedom.

    Now, we get hundreds of threads celebrating the Second Amendment and Threads about our First Amendment rights. But how about we give the Third Amendment its due?

    On this Memorial Day, think how important it is that you can't be forced to give up your house to quarter soldiers. Back in the day, homeowners were forced to sleep in the barn because British Soldiers had taken over their house.

    So.....Third Amendment

    I salute you!

    Now if only you had that much appreciation for the 10th Amendment.

    This was actually a big problem back in their time with the British army commandeering peoples' homes to house British troops. That was the reason for the amendment, to keep the US from doing it. It's pretty much obsolete now, but I wouldn't necessarily throw it out.

    That's the only amendment that the federal government doesn't violate on a routine basis.

    Well if he gets re elected it may.
    I can see it in the future.
    We must help our solders for they have lost their homes . I make an executive order that everyone who can must help these families and open up their homes. It's a crisis. :)

    "Appreciating" it and actually respecting and abiding by it are two different things. The 10th is one in particular most Democrats would and do outright disagree with and even RINOs would only give meaningless lip service at best.

    How can Democrats be trusted to protect my rights given the fact the left, who have taken control of that party, have a list of those they want to see me deprived of in the first place?

    Except to tell you how much water your toilet should hold, what type of light bulb you should own and to make sure you have health insurance
