I am curious about the process and authority of alteringÂ amendments.
The process of making an amendment is pretty well known and not the easiest of tasks.
We have seen them get pretty well gutted, by legislation and the court, but I am wondering more of HOW they get screwed with.
The First Amendment is pretty clear, but yet we have thrashed over the years.
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.
We know that religion is not is not really free in this country, nor is speech, the press has quit being an investigative tool. People’s rights toÂ peaceablyÂ assemble has been nipped, and what is the federal petition process?
Some of this is cultural, but most of it has been the government just fucking us over, left and right.
BTW: for today we are containing this to the FirstÂ Amendment.
