    Together, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights aimed to solve the problems that the Americans had encountered under British rule and the Articles of Confederation by forming a new strong central government which was to be run by the people.

  • My Rights
    429 words
    Home of the brave, and land of the free is it quite that simple I think not. First of all, who ever came up with that phrase was obviously a Republican and obviously insane (same thing right).

Ashburn Village, the neighborhood we lived in, was an upper class development and it was considered safe. On October 14, 1991 the people of this neighborhood found that it was just the opposite. At four o'clock that afternoon Rosie and I were playing school in my basement when the phone rang. It was Rosie's brother call...
  • Right To Life
    403 words
    That the individual shall have full protection in person and in property is a principle as old as the common law; but it has been found necessary from time to time to define anew the exact nature and extent of such protection. Political, social, and economic changes entail the recognition of new rights, and the common law, in its eternal youth, grows to meet the demands of society.
