Bill Of Rights Day

No one seems to have any problem remembering Christmas is December the 25th every year, and New Years Eve always falls on December the 31st. Some people can even remember that December the 7th is Pearl Harbor Day. How many can remember that the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution (The Bill of Rights) were ratified on December, 15, 1791? "America's Aggressive Civil Rights Organization", JPFO (Jews For The Preservation of Firearms Ownership)urges everyone to celebrate their freedom every December 15th. They post some ideas for things you can do to make it a special day at their web site. This year they have challenged the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to celebrate with all of us.

JPFO Alert: A Challenge To The ACLU

For years, supporters of the Second Amendment have complained that the ACLU tends to "cherry-pick" the rights that they defend, promoting some while turning a blind eye to others. Of particular concern, of course, is the ACLU's tendency to ignore rights violations when firearms are involved... even when it isn't the Second Amendment being violated!

We at JPFO believe that the Bill of Rights must be protected_in its entirety_. As one avowed liberal proclaimed (while ordering dozens of our Gran'pa Jack Bill of Rights booklets!) "You can't seperate the Bill of Rights and say, "I want this part, but not this part.""

Darn straight. And that's why we make it a point to promote December 15 as Bill of Rights Day every year. We don't discriminate, either, we want ALL the Bill of Rights, for ALL citizens!

But this year, we want even more. The ACLU claims to honor the Bill of Rights, stating on their website, "These rights are indispensable to a free society..." We agree, and challenge the ACLU to invite THEIR membership to celebrate Bill of Rights Day with us. We've provided the resources:

-The Bill of Rights in 15 languages!

- Lists of activities

- Sample Letters to the Editor

-Sample Resolution

- We'll even give 10% off all orders over $10 from our Bill of Rights or Bust_website

So how about it, ACLU? Join with JPFO in an agressive defense of the_entire_Bill of Rights. Bill of Rights Day is only a few days away-celebrate with us and ask your members to do the same. We look forward to your response.

ALL the Bill of Rights for ALL citizens!

- The Liberty Crew

I hope you will use some of those links to celebrate your rights this December 15th. I think we should celebrate them every day (while we still got em). I want to ask you to celebrate Bill of Rights Day 2005 with me by sending a message to ten of your friends. Remind them of what the day is, and let them know what it means to you.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

Everyday I show my support for the Bill of Rights and so everyday is a Bill of Rights day to me but I do hope that others will take time to understand what the Bill of Rights are about.

Thank you for posting about this, I hadn't thought of it. I'll try to do something major on my blog to increase Americans' awareness of their rights.

At least your congressman will answer you. Mine (Nita Lowry) never does. And you're right about the ACLU....they're very selective on which rights they care about. You would think an organization designed to protect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights would be a little more mainstream.

The ACLU is full of beans when they claim they are for defending the Bill of Rights. What about the Second and Tenth Amendment?
