Bill of Rights Day Spreading Like WILDFIRE!
December 15 was the 206th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights -- the first ten amendments to the Constitution of the U.S.This should be one of the most honored civic days on the American calendar. Unfortunately, most Americans never noticed the occasion- in the same way that many people seem not to notice how the government is increasingly violating their constitutional rights.
However, there is a grassroots movement across the country seeking to wake Americans up to this anniversary and its meaning by consecrating December 15 as the official Bill of Rights day. Governments across the country in recent weeks have passed resolutions or issued proclamations proclaiming "Bill of Rights Day."
You can now see where in the U.S.A., "Bill of Rights Day" has been proclaimed as a day of commemoration, celebration....a day of great honor and reflection. A day to educate the commom man of their heritage, for without knowlege and wisdom of the Bill of Rights, our nation will perish.

The larger message -- if people don t believe in each of the specifics in the Bill of Rights, sooner or later all those rights will be footnotes in history -- by popular vote. The anti-civil rights forces have their own long-term strategic plans to whittle-down the Bill of Rights to nothing.
Our battle is not for the Second Amendment -- it is for the Bill of Rights. Our targets are not shooters or politicians -- but opinion leaders and the voting public. Our goal -- is to win over the hearts and minds of the American public. This is our turnaround.
David Kopel has said the Bill of Rights isn't for conservatives to protect their property or guns, or for liberals to protect filthy speech or rights of accused. Those rights were meant to hang together. To the extent any of the rights are abridged, ALL ARE AT RISK. Or as Dr. Martin Luther King said, "Injustice anywhere, is a threat to justice everywhere."
Our priority may be the Second Amendment, but our perspective must be civil rights.
