FROM THE BILL OF RIGHTS INSTITUTE

 

The first 10 amendments to the Constitution make up the Bill of Rights. Written by James Madison in response to calls from several states for greater constitutional protection for individual liberties, the Bill of Rights lists specific prohibitions on governmental power. The Virginia Declaration of Rights, written by George Mason strongly influenced Madison.

One of the many points of contention between Federalists and Anti-Federalists was the Constitution’s lack of a bill of rights that would place specific limits on government power. Federalists argued that the Constitution did not need a bill of rights, because the people and the states kept any powers not given to the federal government. Anti-Federalists held that a bill of rights was necessary to safeguard individual liberty.

Madison, then a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, went through the Constitution itself, making changes where he thought most appropriate. But several Representatives, led by Roger Sherman, objected that Congress had no authority to change the wording of the Constitution itself. Therefore, Madison’s changes were presented as a list of amendments that would follow Article VII.

END

 

The Bill of Rights was written to protect Americans from tyranny(cruel and oppressive government or rule).

All governments become tyrannical; including democracies.

Over time, government no longer serves the people but exist only for their own sake: to take power and benefits from the people for the government.

Protect The Bill of Rights to protect YOU from government.

 

 

The facts no one wants to read.
