Concerned progressives threaten rights


The Bill of Rights of our Constitution guarantees you the following liberties:

The right to say what you want, think what you want, create what you want.

The right to run for public office and vote for the candidate of your choice.

The right to assemble peacefully to protest injustice.

The right to own a gun for self protection.

The right to a fair trial, to not be jailed without warrant, to be considered innocent, to have to be proven to be guilty by a jury of your peers.

The right to live where you want, travel where you want, buy what you want, eat what you want, drink what you want, wear what you want.

The right to own property without onerous regulations which render that property useless.

The right to worship the God you want, in the church you want, with the religion you want.

The right to worship nothing, if you want.

As an American citizen, these are just a few of your Constitutional rights. They are guaranteed to you whether you are liberal, conservative, man, woman, atheist, black, white, brown, progressive, Tea Party member, gay, straight, short, tall, low IQ, high IQ, rich or poor. In short, these rights apply to all American citizens.

I suggest you use your Constitutional rights now because, if progressives have their way, I believe you will not have these rights much longer. Do not let them take away your rights without a fight.
