161. Frankly I'm stunned by your comments.
Edited on Tue Feb-05-08 03:01 PM by superconnected
A few books you may want to read:

#1 above all else, The social Contract by Rosseau - it explains the foundation of all governments and also explains that the people elected will always abuse privilige, end up being run by the rich, and try to take over. It's in their best interest.

2. Orwells 1984.
3. Orwells animal farm - not like 1984 but explains the abuse by the people in charge.
4. Atwells the handmaids tale - not like the movie, the movie was glorification of sex the book was politically oriented and inspired from what atwell saw happen in afghanistan when women lost their rights - yes they were very westernized and we even had the olympics there in the 80's, women wore short dresses etc. and it was all taken away.

It would help if you examine the progress of antisemitism with the nazis and the major abuses that could follow with just having the information of what tatoos people have should this ever become a facist (insert any religion) state. Or even if we become a facist rw country where we have no tolerance for liberals or their tatoos.

Those amendments are there to protect us in the future. There is severely higher thought given to them than the immediate "police could use the information to catch crimials." I certianly hope you start investigating the higher reasoning behind those amendments. Had we not had them we would have been a completely facist state by now. You are suggesting we get rid of them and that naievity is scary. It's exactly the mentality our forefathers warned us to be vigilant against.
