Why Rights Matter

No matter what anyone tells you, the Constitution of the United States of America is a document created to protect the people from the government and to limit the powers of central government in this country. The first ten amendments to that constitution specifically state certain freedoms held by individuals and the various states. This Bill of Rights is full of things that can only be taken from someone as punishment for their own personal wrongdoing, not as a reaction to the actions of others. It is the most important part of our government, and it must be defended.
