Petition to Proguntactics

The Bill of Rights is an immutable affirmation of human rights!

Every day we see the Bill of rights under attack by politicians who either: have not read the Constitution, cannot comprehend its integrity, forgotten their oath to it or wish to overthrow the sovereignty of our nation. Even though, The Bill of Rights grants no rights to the free people of this country, It is still the cornerstone of everything we hold dear in America. No more shall we tolerate politicians that attempt to subvert or destroy the way of life for the American people. Listed below is the Bill of Rights simplified. Everyone can agree that this document must not change for We the People to maintain our freedoms. Please sign the petition and let them know that the Bill of rights and the constitution means everything to the American people. I and every American would like to see a law passed that limits the power to ratify or edit any amendment in the Bill of rights to include needing 4/5 vote in each house of Congress to be proposed. Then the proposed amendment must be ratified by majority votes in the legislatures or conventions of four-fifths of the states before it can become part of the Constitution. This extra security would make the Bill of Rights more resilient to being changed on a whim and would require a substantial change in society to overturn these unalienable rights of the people.  Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Speech, and the Press Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Amendment 5 - Protection of Rights to Life, Liberty, and Property No person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.

Amendment 7 - Rights in Civil Cases In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States than according to the rules of the common law.
