My God! Reading those, it's not difficult to image they were written by the Third Reich in 1938. Makes me ever so happy I was born in the United States, and I have the Second Amendment along with NRA and GOA to defend my Freedom. Praise God The Framers put the Constitution in front of The People to read and to decide whether or not they wanted to adopt it as written, or whether amendments were warranted. Amendments were warranted and such amendments became the Bill of Rights. Praise God. Praise God. Praise God.

Imagine if no amendments had been promulgated, and we lived today under the original iteration. We'd have no Rights as enumerated under the Bill of Rights. Owning a firearm would be a privilege (where have we read that before?), and we'd have no Freedom to not testify against our own best interests in Court. Y'all know the rest of the Amendments; just imagine not having them to protect you against government overexuberance when putting you on trial or deciding what you can write or say. How blessed we are that 56 men gathered and created a nation like no other that had ever before existed, and with Liberties that had never before been codified for all citizens.

We've all heard of Hammurabi's Code. Many scholars point to it as the first example of written law applying to all subjects of the king. I looked it up on Wikipedia; it's a good thing we do not live under such tyranny. The penalties for even minor infractions are death, severing of hands, removal of eyes, et cetera. Being born under the Constitution is a blessing that so very few of the world's population gets to enjoy. How some Americans can hate this nation is beyond my ability to understand...
