Well, I am probably setting myself up to be flamed since this is clearly an
inappropriate post...but I really couldn't let this pass without adding
another pointer.  All I can say is they started it.

I have to disagree with you here.  From the evidence I've seen,
many Democrats don't believe in the BoR either, particularly the 1st, 2nd, 9th,
and 10th ammendments.  The only party that consistently supports the entire
Bill of Rights is the Libertarian Party.

So do I.  :-)
