Stuff My Brain Says #59

The Amendments do not state what the government has given you rights to, but what rights the government is not allowed to infringe upon. Any breaches of those rights are because the government, and lazy-minded people, have assumed that those rights have been bestowed upon the people by the government, as a king to his peasants, and therefore believe that they can alter and ultimately take them away.

When people realize that the Amendments are simply reminders of the LIMITS of government, arguments concerning things like the Separation of State and Church, and gun control (or, by the new politically-correct "gun safety") would go away, because those arguments are calling for the very limits the government CANNOT overstep.
