Subject: myway001 - Introduction...
IMHO - The Founding Fathers did a fantastic job creating this Country, considering the technology of the time.
THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
Action of Second Continental Congress, July 4,1776.
THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES
We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
THE AMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
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.
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.
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 warrents shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation and particularly describing the place to be searched and the persons to be seized.
That was 1776, and we are now living in a different world in 2018. Those amendments need a rewrite. We need laws to define and explain religion, the press and free speech. We need some kind of control over those arms, that people keep and bear, considering the present day technology.
And we need better definition in Amendment III with more thoughts coming in MYWAY002.
To be continued -
I really believe in public discussion; however, Email is the best process for my software in it's present state. Please put a "MYWAY" in your title to get my attention. rest assured, I am working on a better system.
