The War On The Constitution

The Right is at war with the Constitution.

They hate the idea of free speech and have tried to limit it in the name of patriotism.

They have twisted the Second Amendment so much people believe it actually says, "Americans have the right to bear arms". Which is probably because they forget this part, "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." I am a gun owner, so I don't want guns banned, but let's not confuse this as a blanket statement that they can have a gun.

The NSA/AT&T, enough said about the 4th? The Fifth, Sixth and Seventh are now trumped by the Patriot Act. And the Tenth only applies to them. In 2000 they found their way around the 12th Amendment

And the newest is trying to add more Amendments. First gay marriage and now flag burning. Why do Republicans hate the Constitution so much?
