    9 and 10 are both pretty good.

    What does it matter? Other than #2, which is simply used as a red herring by the right, and #3, which is pretty much irrelevant, none of them apply anymore.

    “Quick, which one is most important to you?”

    Why choose one when you can have them all?
    Well… maybe not under the current administration…

    1 & 2

    The first one gives us the right to voice our objections, the second allows us to enforce our objections.

    Quick, which one has the word ‘privacy’ in it? or abortion, or health care, or anything else those liberal idiots bitch about?

    @TGGeko
    The right to privacy and right to abortion are part of the 9th amendment.

    Okay, smartass. Find me the word “torture.”

    Better yet, find me any passage in the whole Constitution that says the President can do whatever he wants.

    I’m with reboot – #9 protects the people and #10 limits the federal government.

    As far as #2 – if you’re a member of the militia, then you get to keep and bear arms. Military and national guard, and I guess this is also cops. This was the amendment written in to allow the Revolutionary War soldiers to take their military issue firearms home with them so they could rejoin the army easily if the British returned amd defend the country.

    @Eric:

    No, you read it wrong. #2 is about the peoples’ right to protect themselves. It is about the people being able to regulate a militia well.

    Here’s an interesting analogy about the 2nd amendment that I heard recently:
    What if it said,”A well educated Faculty, being necessary for the education of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and read Books, shall not be infringed”? Would that mean that only professors could own books?

    @RenegadeRick – Actually, I wasn’t reading the amendment. I was reading the letters written at the time discussing the need for the amendment. Those expositions defending the amendment mostly were concerned with the need to have weapons in every hamlet and village, because it would take too long to reconstitue the military if everyone had to go to the state armory and then back to the front lines in event of war. @reboot – Nope. It wouldn’t mean only professors could own books, as written. Nor would it forbid a law prohibiting citizens from owning books, as written. The amendment… Read more »

    America, the Land of the Lost and the Damned. Freedoms? Rights? What are these things of which you speak? America, good old U.S.A, has turned into a friggin police state! Good one G.W.B and you filthy Republican fat cats.
    America, and the Bill of Rights, were once noble and great but are now diseased and decaying from the inside out.

    @ pauld Torture is specifically forbidden in Article 8. And being held without charges is forbidden in Article 5. Although the Constitution and its Amendments apply to the citizenry of the US, to deny foreigners under arrest by US forces the same rights we have is hypocritical. Either kill them in war, or let them go if you don’t have any charges. Kidnapping and torturing people you think might have a tie to a suspected organization is insane. @ TGGeko Privacy is implied in the 4th and 5th Amendments. At least, that’s what the SCOTUS ruled on. Not being subjected… Read more »

    Article 9 seems to be commonly forgotten by conservatives.
