fight for your rights

I have been thinking lately about our constitutional rights and how we have been losing them , so I looked 'em up , here's a couple amendments that seemed pertinent . . .

Amendment XIII (1865)

Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”

This one jumped out at me for the obvious economic slavery reasons . There is so much talk about austerity and I wonder what else can they take away ? The postal system ? they want to stop delivering mail on saturday WTF no netflix on the weekend that should get some peoples attention . All of the libraries ? they are closing on by one and shaving down their hours annually  ? Our infrastructure is already in decay with bridges , roads , levees , highways and schools crumbling away with no hope of assistance any time soon since all our money is going to the wars . We have been dealing with austerity for far too long . Sure I have a tv and a car ( and I thank the universe everyday for the luxuries  I do have and I know that it is so much better than most people have it ) but I cant afford to go to school ,  start a business , buy a house , or start a family ( since I cant afford infertility healthcare )  I feel like I am going crazy ! up is down , down is up .  And then I just remind myself " oh yeah we are living in an Orwellian state so everything is backwards " .  It is obvious we are all criminals in the eyes of this administration why else would they be arming the police with militarized riot gear . They are getting ready to fight us because they are afraid of us , lets keep it that way.

Amendment XV (1870)

Section 1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.
Section 2. The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Amendment XIX (1920)

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.
Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Amendment XXII (1951)

Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.
Section 2. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several states within seven years from the date of its submission to the states by the Congress.

This one is kind of a big deal they want to have Obama run for a third term.This is serious we can not allow that to happen! Here is a article on RT about it .

The Bill of Rights –
