Bill of Rights Day

December 15th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Today is the 220th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, the first 10 amendments to the Constitution that guarantee us most of the civil rights we enjoy.

I think most of us take these rights for granted, somehow thinking that even without the Bill of Rights we would probably still have most of the freedoms we have. You only have to consider how busy the ACLU is continuously defending these rights to get an idea what would happen if they weren’t codified in law.
