Hey, LOOK . . . . . . . a Flag!

close up on u.s.flag

With all the fighting about the 1st amendment (freedom of religion, speech, & press) and the 2nd amendment (right to bear arms),

We seem to have forgotten about the 4th amendment:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

We also might want to remember the 9th amendment:

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

And the 10th amendment:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

9 & 10 kind of go together.

In fact, most of what I see in the news today makes me think that we need to go back and read what our Constitution actually saysespecially our politicians.

Many patriotic people would be surprised.

If anyone is interested, here are links to: 

the BILL of RIGHTS (that's Amendments 1-10),
and AMENDMENTS 11-27.
