The Importance of The Bill of Rights in Society Today - When the Second Constitutional Convention wrote the Constitution in 1787, there was a controversy between the federalists and the anti-federalists surrounding whether or not to have a Bill of Rights. The anti-federalists claimed that a bill of rights was needed that listed the guaranteed rights that the government could never take away from a person i.e. “inalienable rights.” A Bill of Rights was eventually deemed necessary, and has worked for over 210 years. There are many reasons why the ten amendments are still valid to this day, and the best examples are the First Amendment, concerning the freedom of religion, the Fifth Amendment, and the Sixth Amendment....   [tags: American History, Constitution] 621 words

While the New York’s law is protecting the mining workers, it is unfair for bakers because they will lose their jobs if they don’t work for more than 60 hours per week (231-232)....   [tags: Bill of Rights]

Under the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell approach the Department of Defense were not allowed to ask questions that were aimed at finding out the sexual orientation of the prospective military members....   [tags: Homosexuality, argumentative, persuasive ]

Protection from Punishment - ... The exact wording, determined by the House of Lords, was, that “excessive bail ought not to be required nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel nor unusual punishments inflicted.” This idea was slightly radical at the time, as most people only had argued against excessive punishments, such as extensive imprisonment or long-standing torture. The incorporation of a ban against cruel punishments added a sense of empathy and humanity to the law, and paved the way for the same to be included in the American Bill of Rights....   [tags: Government, Separation of Powers, Bill of Rights] 2023 words

Why Our President Has To Leave - This is an essay about why I think Bill Clinton should resign, and also why I think he won't. You see, Bill Clinton is a man without morals. Well, actually that's not quite true. He does appear to have morals; he just sacrifices them to expediency whenever the opportunity arises. If absolute selflessness with respect to one's values were a virtue, Bill Clinton would be the most virtuous president the United States has ever had.

An Argument Against Gun Control - The Gun Control issue has sparked major controversy in America today. People who support gun control feel that guns are the reason for the soaring crime rate in our country. I disagree with the supporters of gun control. I feel that because of the black market, violent criminals being released from prison early, and the need to ensure personal safety, stricter gun control will have very little impact on violent crime in America. I believe that gun control works in theory, but not in real life. Sure, there are many violent crimes where guns are used, but most of these guns are obtained illegally, because the gun control laws enforced are not enough....   [tags: Firearms Brady Bill]
