    ....without the Bill of Rights

    And, on this date, December 15th, 1791, the first ten amendments were ratified.

    "The United States Bill of Rights comprises the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution. Proposed following the often bitter 1787–88 debate over the ratification of the Constitution, and written to address the objections raised by Anti-Federalists, the Bill of Rights amendments add to the Constitution specific guarantees of personal freedoms and rights, clear limitations on the government's power in judicial and other proceedings, and explicit declarations that all powers not specifically granted to the U.S. Congress by the Constitution are reserved for the states or the people. The concepts codified in these amendments are built upon those found in earlier documents, especially the Virginia Declaration of Rights (1776), as well as the English Bill of Rights (1689) and the Magna Carta (1215).[1]"
    United States Bill of Rights - Wikipedia


    They remained in effect until the Democrat Party became dominant, and demanded restrictions on free speech and freedom of conscience.



    An example:
    “Earlier this week, Obama-appointed Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan wrote in her minority dissent to the Janus ruling that the Court had “weaponized the First Amendment.”

    The majority opinion dwelt on issues of compelled speech, noting that “because such compulsion so plainly violates the Constitution, most of our free speech cases have involved restrictions on what can be said, rather than laws compelling speech. But measures compelling speech are at least as threatening.”

    Kagan, however, has other ideas and claimed in her dissent that

    “The First Amendment was meant for better things,” she concluded.

    Kagan’s fantastical notion of “black-robed rulers overriding citizens’ choices” by “weaponizing the First Amendment” is puzzling. Citizens in non-right-to-work states are completely free to join a union if they so wish, and in doing so, commit to paying union dues. The only change here is that unions can no longer extort dues from non-members in any state.

    Citizens’ choices have not been overridden; indeed, citizen choice is expanded under this ruling. They can join a union or not join a union, those who do not join cannot be compelled to pay union dues, but they are also not barred from doing so if they wish.

    Her point about “weaponizing the First Amendment” is equally confounding. The Founders intended the First Amendment to be a weapon . . . against government tyranny and oppression. They were insistent that freedom of speech was required to check government and to maintain a free and independent citizenry.” Who's afraid of the 1st Amendment?



    Hussein put an anti-first amendment Justice on our Supreme Court.....


    ...and you can vote Democrat?????

    The Bill of Rights only applies to the United States ... the rest of America has their own Constitutions ... go up to Canada and deny the Holocaust, see how quick you get deported ...

    Leftists cannot win the debate of ideas: conservatives eat Liberal’s lunch. That explains the following:

    First on the list of targets for Communists, Fascists.....and Liberals......is Free Speech.

    Case in point, CNN news-speaker, and grad of..."
    Yale University, where he obtained an undergraduate degree, and Fordham University where he obtained his Juris Doctor (J.D.). He is a licensed attorney.
    He currently works at
    CNN,[1][2] and has previously been the ABC Newschief law and justice correspondent and the co-anchor for ABC's 20/20."
    Chris Cuomo - Wikipedia


    One smart Liberal, huh?


    With all that supposed education, Liberal Democrat Cuomo said this:

    "CNN's Chris Cuomo: First Amendment doesn't cover hate speech
    "Hate speech is excluded from protection" under the First Amendment.
    Chris Cuomo on Wednesday, May 6th, 2015 in a Tweet [​IMG]


    "Chris Cuomo is a law-school graduate. He was once the chief law and justice correspondent for ABC News. He is a host of a show on a
    network that bills itself as “the most trusted name in news.” Given all that, he really ought to know better.

    Chris Cuomo is a law-school graduate. He was once the chief law and justice correspondent for ABC News. He is a host of a show on a
    network that bills itself as “the most trusted name in news.” Given all that, he really ought to know better.


    Cuomo’s tweet, and his stubborn campaign to defend it in the wake of a merciless assault from the Twitterverse, errs in two ways. First, it’s ludicrous to state that “reading” the Constitution will reveal that hate speech is “excluded from protection.” There is no such language anywhere in the Constitution."

    Chris Cuomo Won’t Walk Back His Ignorant Tweet About Hate Speech



    No wonder the majority of Democrats favor ending free speech.....that's CNN's audience.

    Does Canada refer to itself as 'America'?


    How about Mexico?


    Read more carefully.

    Not according to Democrats/Liberals/Progressives/Fascists.

    I just proved that vis a vis Justice Kagan and Fredo Cuomo.....


    Are you the same guy from Wheel of Fortune who said “is there an ‘f’ as in pharoh?”
