Does the Constitution give you those rights or does it just describe and enumerate rights you already have?

To: Your Nightmare
The Constitution is the framework for this country. Our rights - as citizens thereof - are enumerated and guaranteed in the the first ten Amendments.

It can be argued that the government has reneged on those rights to us citizens. Most blame has been cast at the judiciary, but McCain-Feingold was passed by the houses of congress, signed by the executive, and affirmed by the judiciary; it represents the most dramatic, concerted, and blatant attack on the First in quite a while.

The Firearms Act of 1968, the Brady Bill, and the Aviation and Transportation Safety Act of 2002 is destroying the Second.

Are they trying to push us til we react violently?
