fail. but, whatever. sell your own soul if it makes you happy. liberty for me.

the constitution is one of the Most Radical Experiments ever undertaken in the history of the Human Race as we know it.

our forefathers are rolling in their graves at the sheeple that are their offspring.

Life Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness. A1 is nothing without A2 -- that is why they were written back to back.

Government is OF the PEOPLE, FOR the PEOPLE and, BY the PEOPLE.

Constitutional Topic: The Second Amendment

The 2nd Amendment, starting in the latter half of the 20th century, became an object of much debate. Concerned with rising violence in society and the role firearms play in that violence, gun control advocates began to read the 2nd Amendment one way. On the other side, firearm enthusiasts saw the attacks on gun ownership as attacks on freedom, and defended their interpretation of the 2nd Amendment just as fiercely. If the authors of the 2nd Amendment could have foreseen the debate, they might have phrased the amendment differently, because much of the debate has centered around the way the amendment is phrased.

Is the amendment one that was created to ensure the continuation and flourishing of the state militias as a means of defense, or was it created to ensure an individual's right to own a firearm?

Despite the rhetoric on both sides of the issue, the answer to both questions is most likely, "Yes." The attitude of Americans toward the military was much different in the 1790's than it is today. Standing armies were mistrusted, as they had been used as tools of oppression by the monarchs of Europe for centuries. In the war for independence, there had been a regular army, but much of the fighting had been done by the state militias, under the command of local officers. Aside from the war, militias were needed because attacks were relatively common, whether by bandits, Indians, and even by troops from other states.

Today, the state militias have evolved into the National Guard in every state. These soldiers, while part-time, are professionally trained and armed by the government. No longer are regular, non-Guardsmen, expected to take up arms in defense of the state or the nation (though the US Code does still recognize the unorganized militia as an entity, and state laws vary on the subject [10 USC 311]).

I am more interested in who makes up the LW Trolls here. They have done more to

harass and harangue and in the process have actually been detrimental to the election of Democrats in Rural areas of the USA.

A Married Republican Man Trolling The Lounge for Democratic Women while

continuing to post the Most Vile Things about Democrats over at Free Republic. This Troll pays to post at both places and has never said anything inflammatory on this site.

I consider this to be a Variation of The Troll, ymmv.
