It seems like every few years, the ideas originally proposed by FDR in his "Second Bill of Rights" speech is trotted out. As usual, the Republicans attack and foam at the mouth over them and yet...

What is actually wrong with them? Where would America be if back in 1944, Congress embraced the Second Bill of Rights and passed them through. Where would we be today?

Seriously though, Gerry nailed it. The 2nd amendment was put in place so that the government would fear the people. We are gun crazy because of our past. Not our constitution.

"Would anyone actually like to attack my claim that America is gun nutty because it`s in the constitution, despite no active involvement from the government?"

I do believe it`s being a part of the constitution has something to do with how much Americans love guns. However, I would argue that it has a hell of a lot more to do with our history and culture of hunting and warfare. Most initial colonists here in the new world did not know anything about agriculture or farming and had to rely on hunting, or the hospitality of the natives, in order to survive. The French who inhabited the Louisiana territory relied primarily on trading animal skins for survival. Those who came west to claim land had to rely on hunting to make ends meet and feed their families. For a solid 300 years guns were considered necessary for both sustenance and protection. The second amendment facilitated that culture, but it did not cause it.

Baal "Would anyone actually like to attack my claim that America is gun nutty because it`s in the constitution, despite no active involvement from the government?"

We`re gun crazy because it`s in our culture. The Wild West... and rural towns where hunting is common. Dirty Harry and John Wayne alwyas had guns.

The constitution just gives guarantees the right to own them. "Theoretically". There`s much debate about the actual meaning of the Second Ammendment as it may have been intended to allow for civilian malitia, not personal ownership.

But the Supreme Court went back to a traditional stance in District of Colombia vs Heller in 2008 saying the 2nd Ammendment gives individuals the right own guns not related to militia.

But personally, I think the only real guarantee against a tyranical goverment is a well armed popoulation.

Cajun: The constitution is not to be used in such a manner, It was written to protect our citizens from the government, not to say what the government must do for it`s citizens.

There is nothing in our constitution or laws preventing citizens from owning property, In fact the 5th amendment already protects that right.

Baal wasn`t advocating people be entitled to a house, rather a reminder in the constitution that says you have a right to own one (and no it doesn`t say you`re entitled to it). Though I suppose that in of itself would have problems.

Baalthazaq: You are confusing the "right to bear arms". The operative word there is `Bear`, meaning to own, not to be bought for them.

We have a right to `Pursue` happiness, not have it handed to us by the government. Also, What happens when one day your government can`t pay for those entitlements anymore ? You get the riots that are happening in Greece, The strikes happening in Spain, Massive protests in Italy and Ireland.

A state sets itself up for failure when it enshrines `cradle to grave` entitlements in it`s constitution.

the right?? No no no. In Ireland and Britian this mentality has people on social welfare and living in houses out of tax payers money. If you have a child the state will give you a house so teenage girls are getting pregnet all over the shop to get out of their homes. Education yes. In ireland we have a free college system (€2000 a year for a registaration fee but, it is afforable) and a free health care system. Health and Education improve society and I think they are important. I also belive they should be right as, for houses and material bullpoo take some responsiblity and get a job. I wish there was a cut off as I think most of the people in Ireland on it are either a)lazy b)drug addicts in a cycle.
Good points bad points. And as a teacher, kids do not need laptops or ipods to learn.

One of the reasons for the second amendment is, get this, to deter an undemocratic government. Just take a look at before the beginning of the United Government, it took an insurrection (which should have failed by many reasons) to drive out the British. Interestingly enough it was rather useful in this little conflict.

I thought it was clear from my first post what the argument was.

Gun ownership is in the constitution.
It encourages higher gun ownership despite no government purchases of private weapons.

Ergo, if education/home ownership/etc was put in the constitution >>in the same way<<, it may encourage similar booms in those areas.

Ergo, good idea, even without government spending increases.

Incidentally:
Communism has a meaning.
Socialism has a meaning.

By accusing every policy of being socialist or communist, you are making communism (which is bad), look good.

By terming policies that work all around the world communist, especially when they are actually integral to some of the happiest nations on earth (Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Netherlands, etc), and even more specifically nations happier than you are, you`re making this communism look like some sort of Utopia.

You need another argument beyond false labeling and guilt by association.

It is legal in many countries.
None of which have the right to own guns in the constitution.
None of which have a rate of ownership double the nearest competitor.

Gun ownership in the US is at 88% compared to Yemen`s 54%. They`re second. The world average (median) is 6.2%.

I`m arguing that the inclusion in the constitution is part of the reason for the high levels of gun ownership (feel free to make alternative arguments).

My argument further is that similar inclusion might be an easy way to promote interest in (mainly) education, but hopefully other things as well.

Nope we are gun nutty. Yes I like my Remington 12 gauge shotgun and my .338 Winchester Magnum rifle. I also enjoy my brand new 2010 Bowtech Admiral FLX that I took pig hunting up Mauna Kea and Loa. You want to start with spearguns also?
No one and I mean no one will take these away from my living fingers. When they try they will have to kill my wife also. She`s a better marksman than myself.

Here is a kicker for you to dwell on. Try regulating these in Hawaii. Half the local Polynesians alone carry hunting weapons in their homes. Consider that fact when Hawaii is considered one of the most left liberal minded states in the Union. Since we are on the front line in the Pacific it will never happen. They make you register and do background checks and have you go to classes for training. However they don`t ban such. The last politician who tried such lost his seat in the capital.

I`m insinuating that phrased in the exact same way as the right to own firearms, there shouldn`t be a problem *at all* even for Conservatives.

Look at the link I posted. The US has more guns than anyone by a long long long shot. I`m pretty sure that has a hell of a lot to do with the right to own one being so ingrained in the US mindset.

You apply that same mindset to housing and education, and it would be beneficial, even without the government paying a single penny for it.

Right. Everyone has the right to OWN a gun, but they do not have the right to have a gun BOUGHT for them. This man is saying that everyone has the right to have a home, healthcare, and education PAID for them, without them doing anything to earn it.

Yes, the socialist mindset, where just PROCLAIMING it so will MAKE it so. (after all, it SOUNDS so simple, so it IS so simple) These same idiots do not realize that you have to PAY for such proclamations.

They believe all wealth originates with the government, so they can do with it what they will. Just ask Michael "The Money of the Wealthy is not `theirs` it`s `ours`" Moore. (of course, `His` wealth is well, `his`.)

They don`t even try to hide it anymore.

"The Ipod is just an exaggeration for the trickle up effect that the law would create."

There is no trickling if there is no money. Giving someone a house doesn`t cause them to suddenly produce wealth. Spending more money on schools and paying the same teachers more doesn`t make your kids smarter. Giving someone free healthcare does not make them more productive.

On the contrary, all of these things incentivize laziness.

Welcome to the socialist mindset.

Here`s a good clue as to whether or not something should be included as a right under the constitution: If it costs money, it isn`t a right!

You have the right to get a job and buy a house yourself. You do not have the right to have someone else unwillingly buy that house for you.

All men are born equal... or not, due to the accident of birth. Or to rephrase it, some men are more equal than others.
So this brings us to the issue here. Should we create a level, universal platform and bring everyone up (or down) such platform, to create forced equality? Or should we just simply let nature take its course, eliminating the weak and reinforce the strong? Or perhaps, should we make a compromise between the two extremes, allowing inequality its existence, at the same time doing whatever we can to create a makeshift, unstable equality?
However, I still fear that reality is much more than that, and solving inequality is much more than picking A B or C. The ruling class will not forgo its privileges, the ruled class will not tolerate inequalities. But without the people below, who will the ruling class rule? And without the people above, who will guide the bewildered masses into the right direction?

I like the idea (or maybe ideal) of providing the "right" to everyone to have a home, healthcare and an education. But then I have to ask, what kind of house? Does each kid get there own room? Does the home require a tv (with cable paid) and/or internet for the laptop? Let`s say you have "right" to house with one bedroom for every two kids. So if you have two kids and a two bedroom house, do you get a new house when you have another child? Is there an age limit on the houses? If my house is 5 years old and my friend has a 75 year old house, is that equal?
So, like I said, the idea sounds wonderful; however reality isn`t ideal :-? That`s my 2 cents.
