10. Are you actually a Republican?

With the exception of one really stretched 5/4 interpretation by the Supreme court, the right to bear arms is linked to a well regulated militia. No matter what Thomas Jefferson, who was the original OWS member, every other statement from the founding fathers concerning self protection related to militia or indian attacks, not guns against thieves. When you combine the freewheeling interpretation that free speech forgives all, or the weird interpretation that freedom of religion means you can refuse to give basic medical needs to employees, the real abuse of the constitution is the stretching of the bill of rights out of recognition.
