What it might have looked like if the founding fathers had names like, Bush, Rove, DeLay, Frist, Ashcroft, and Falwell

That hissing noise you are hearing are your rights being sucked down the giant toilet aka the Department of Homeland Security.

The Bill of (the right’s) Rights

I'd hate to see what it would look like if it were written by people with names like Kennedy, Schumer, Pellosi, Kerry, Clinton, Boxer, Read, McCarthy and on and on.

One thing you could bet your butt on, there would be no 2nd Amendment.

The "Patriot" Act.

We were lucky, blessed, or what ever, that our founders were more enlightened than those of the left or right are today.

You ask a Liberal what time it is and he will tell you all the parts of a clock[but can't put one together],ask a Conservative the time and he will give you a prompt concise answer.

The "West Wing" revisited

"Hey George, what time is it?"

and George replied

The big hand is on the ... and the little hand is on the ...

"Very good", said Uncle Dick, "now go back to that oval office, we gave you, and do what Uncle Karl told you"

Well let's see. If we had people in office now with names like Kerry, Schumer, Clinton, Pelosi, Boxer, Kennedy and what have you the whole country would be over-run with terrorists, we would have no guns to defend ourselves, we would have no ammunition to put in the guns, every county in every state would have a federaly run abortion clinic, we would have to appeal to the French for a massive shipment of white flags so we could peaceably surrender, the UN would have a satellite office in every state to put down patriotic demonstrations and on and on. Given the choice I think I would prefer the way it is now. :-D :) :-D :) :D

Nightrain,

How can you make such an outrageous statement about importing white flags from France?

A simple review of France’s of surrenders, clearly illustrates your complete lack of fashion sense.

June 1815, Napoleon, surrenders to Wellington.

June 1940, surrender to the Germans

May 1854, surrender at Dien Bien Phu, to the Viet Minh

We were attacked on September 11, well after Labor Day. As is evident, by France’s history, if one is going to surrender it must be after the beginning of spring but before, but before Labor Day.

The only thing worse than losing a war is committing a fashion faux pas, while doing it, and there are few greater faux pas, than the wearing of white after Labor Day.

What’s next, brown socks with black shoes? Unbelievable!

We do, & they can & do cause more damage collectively to our liberty than any single one could as a president.

Trying to get a prompt, concise answer in regards to the second amendment from a conservative politician aint so easy in my experience. Politicians on both sides are pretty pathetic nowadays, just elected buisnessmen who dont care a hoot about America except how it can benifit them.

Leverdude, yes I know these people are in office right now. I was trying to show how things would be different if these people had no opposition from a different party. I hate to think what would happen if these people were allowed to run amuck if they had no opposition. :D

If I printed out 50 copies of your post, shredded it, and put it in my garden I likely could feed all my neighbors.

Bill of Rights

Our rights, ( I think), are fading away. I do not care which political spectrum is in power while it happens. I care greatly that this trend stop. If we staunchly support every little part of the Bill of Rights and Constitution, without reguard to political party, ( which it seems we will not), our children's children may have a better nation.
