The Bill of Rights

On December 15, 1791 the first 10 amendments of the Constitution were established, after ratification by the Commonwealth of Virginia. These amendments are what we call the Bill of Rights. Designed to guarantee personal freedoms and limit the government's power, these articles are often twisted today in order do the opposite; limit personal freedom and expand government power.

Speaking of the Bill of Rights, how long before we see the "president" sporting a fancy military jacket emblazoned with fake war medals and celebrating his new powers?
