Does anyone read the Constitution anymore?

It now appears that our fearless leaders are pushing through legislation that will make it easier than ever to remove your freedom from you.  Mr. Bush is wanting the ability to jail anyone he wants for as long as we wants without charging them.  This is in addition to several other points in this new legislation that are all allegedly designed to help win the war on terror.  This is terrible legislation and nothing good can come from it.  However, my point is the hypocrisy of the left.  They will have no trouble declaring that everyone has a right to universal healthcare, a right to an education, and a right to a home.  We as American citizens have none of these rights.   While government run universal healthcare would be a deathblow to this country, privately run universal healthcare would be a welcome privilege.  So, too, is an education or a home.  You have several rights as outlined by the Constitution.  Freedom to assemble, freedom to practice religion, freedom to protest, freedom to own a gun, along with many others.

While the left is rightfully fearful of this new legislation, we should all be reminded that the left among us will cheerfully rewrite the constitution as well.  Don't let them get away with it either.  Know the documents that founded this country.  It's your right!
