CSGV Bill of Rights Fail

Oh, my word. These Asshats just don't give up making fools of themselves. This is the latest from the CSGV facebook page.

"...Furthermore, not all the amendments in the Bill of Rights deal with individual rights."

What? Here's the slim skinny on the Bill of Rights. It's all about the Individual's rights. Don't believe me? Here we go

I Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. [Yep, that's a right of the individual]

II A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. [yep, another right of the individual]

III No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law. [Protecting the Individual Homeowner.]

IV The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. [another individual right]

V No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation. [person, that must be an Individual]

VI In all criminal prosecutions, the accused [an Individual] shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

VII In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury [for the defendant, an Individual] shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

VIII Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. [referring to a defendant, an Individual]

IX The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. [not a collective right, the Individual right]

X The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. [the states are the collective, so the people but be Individuals]

Hey, Asshats, the Bill of Rights is ALL ABOUT THE INDIVIDUAL, you know, THE PEOPLE.

What say you?
