Sen. Baldwin: 1st Amendment Doesn't Apply to Individuals
« on: July 06, 2015, 05:29:12 PM »
With idiots like this running things, is it any wonder why the country is going into the crapper?
(Actually, these people aren't all idiots .. just evil would be my guess!)

Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) says the 1st Amendment’s religious liberty protections don’t apply to individuals. On MSNBC last week, Wisconsin’s junior Senator claimed that the Constitution’s protection of the free exercise of religion extends only to religious institutions, and that individual’s do not have a right to the free exercise of their own religion.

I don't know whether to laugh or scream. The bimbo probably doesn't even know what the entire Bill of Rights is, let alone that it was meant to keep Govt at bay.

Whoever runs against her next, needs to make this the centerpiece of their campaign. :blink:

I wonder how the Baldwin twit will explain how the rest of the 1st applies to individuals, but ONLY free expression of religion clause is limited to organizations? Or is she going to be the first to start with the idea that only government approved organizations have free speech, press, and assembly?

The demoncraps are pulling every desperate string they can think of. The backlash against the latest SCOTUS travesty is not even started yet, and Christian America has the atheist libtard Satanists scared spitless. They sold their souls for votes from a 2% minority, and are looking at losing a significant portion of one of the largest consistent voting blocks in U.S. history in the process.  And I don't think courting a group which is predominately Catholic will help out a whole lot.

Sadly, I am wondering, even if humanist progressivism (grossly mislabeled as "liberalism") is solidly shut down for the next two decades, and America takes a decisive swing back to classical American Christian values, how we will get the genie of fake marriages back in the bottle? Will the coming swing back to conservatism (ie: classical liberalism) allow society to simply negate those unions forced down our throats?

Its frightening to see how many powerful people in our government are now openly opposing the principles of this nation's founding...  There is definitely a totalitarian revolution going on here now...  I often wonder if an actual shooting civil war will erupt in my lifetime.

Yet there not a one of them going through the process of change it.  Our founders gave us a way of changing it.

Because they know the changes they want will be opposed by the vast majority. Even their current most arduous supporters would take a, "Wait a friggin' minute!" backstep from what these tyrant wannabes are really after.  In fact, they are still hiding, for the most part, their real agenda.

This brain dead twit thinks that because the LGBT community - who is for the most part rabidly anti-Christian (they haven't the guts to be rabidly anti-Muslim...) - just won a major concession from SCOTUS, the time is ripe to start eroding our religious liberties, and the humanist progressives all filled with themselves, will fall in line.

And of course the first step, just as with their attack on RTKBA, she suggests that individuals are not protected, but only organizations. Thinks she can repeat history or something....

And I have a strong feeling she is going to find out just how wrong she is.

What? The bill of rights is to protect INDIVIDUALS not the government! I learned that in 8th grade in history. Somebody please put Sen. Baldwin back into middle school.

What I find disturbing is that Baldwin,and people like her, are involved in the legislative process. No wonder this country is headed for failure, and electing a `RAT or RINO will hasten the process.  :cursing:

Given how many states have called for a new C.C. it's highly possible. We all know the current Central Gov, isn't going to just step aside for the new one once the States call for and hold a new C.C.

Now that years of protesting have paid off with a political position - exercising freedom of speech in the most obnoxious way ....  the rest of you can to shut-up.

The Bill of rights is really a Bill of Prohibitions against the federal government.   It states what the federal government is not authorized to do.  The U.S. Constitution is a document that structures the federal government by dividing it up into three branches and states what each branch is allowed to do and is only authorized to do. 

Let's look at the first amendment. 

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.

If we look at this strictly; only Congress is not authorized to make a law against these things.   It doesn't say the states can't or private individuals can't on their own property.   This whole freedom of speech is a complete misnomer.

You forget the 14th states that no level of government has the authority to abridge anyone's rights without due process.
