    It may be the off season for our representatives. That doesn't mean they don't want to hear from you.
    Those who are fighting to protect our rights need to be supported. Consider a box of ammo or two. $50 - 100.
    They also need letters of encouragement.

    Those who are anti natural rights, need to be politely rebuked.

    Sad, that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were created by our forefathers so we wouldn't have to Fight for our Rights!!

    This was an interesting article. We may, I say May have a new ally in the protection of the Constitution.
    Many Hispanics are more conservative than people think and they do have influence on the rest of their community.
    The concept that Hispanics want social programs and freebies is no where near the truth according to this.
    Lets hope their influence rubs off. I think many have seen the darker side of repression and want no more part of it.

    Worth the read and contemplation.

    Agreed. The version of compromise they're looking for isn't the one from a dictionary.

    It is best to leave God out of this fight, it just makes us sound even more out of touch to the opposition.

    Well then let's include the easter bunny, the great pumpkin, moohamid, and the invisible flying spaghetti monster too. Can't ever have too many deities on your side.

    Ya know, it's kind of funny how we have this rule around here that it's not allowed to bring "God" into the discussion due to the fact that it may "offend" certain people, and yet, here you are doing the exact thing the no God rule is meant to help avoid.

    Believe what you want...who cares. What you believe makes absolutely no difference to me, or God Himself...or the Easter Bunny as you call Him. It's about choice, and I love it when people make that choice so clearly as to actually put it in writing on a public forum because it simply means there will be no misunderstanding once you close your eyes here for the last time....and open them there in that place you are most certain does not exist...a few seconds later.

    The rule and agreement is simple. No religious discussion and slipping one's 'savior' in as part of a sentence is the same crap. You keep Santa/whoever to yourself (your part). We don't ridicule what you believe or teach you why it is delusion, etc.

    Then we all get along. It is a great rule.

    Actually, those documents were created so we COULD/CAN fight for our rights, not so we wouldn't have to...


    Just sayin' ;)

    I could have done without the posts where people were correcting other people over it. Bringing religion into a discussion here just leads to pissing match. Staying away from these discussions is best. Let's concentrate on other subjects: guns are cool and Nancy Pelosi wants to take away our rights.

    Human nature guarantees that those of us who desire freedom will always have to fight for it...until the end of time.

    God Given Rights doesn't offend me, Just another way of saying NOT man given rights. I'm a border line atheist but lack the faith to commit lol! I use phrases like that to make a point here and there and hope people aren't assuming I'm pushing religion on them. "Natural Born rights" just doesn't sound as Impressive. Back to nature... granola bars....peace signs..... just doesn't do it for me. God given makes me think of Charlton Heston coming down with lightning bolts and stone tablets. A nice authoritative image you don't want to argue with, that the government can't argue with! If there was a better phrase I'd use it.

    Classic and true to form, she bloviates exceedingly, yet actually says nothing of substance... at all.
