Most American citizens do not know their specific rights. Consequently, most American citizens have no idea why the Bill of Rights exists at all.  The first 10 amendments were ratified December 15, 1791 in order to correct the original constitution.  To be very specific, the first ten amendments, known as the Bill of Rights, were written to make it very clear for all to see, that our innate rights as free people are recognized by the federal government and therefore, the federal government is prohibited from infringing on these rights.

Obviously, we the people have been sleeping and partying and watching sports and drinking fluoride and drinking collectivist kool aid for many, many generations.  Now a portion of the population is beginning to rub its collective eyes in disbelief.  As you peer out, through the haze of official propaganda provided by the corporate media, you will see the unaccountable and lawless federal government while it goes about its business as usual.  But, if you know the Bill of Rights, you will realize that we the people are the bosses of the government, not the other way around.  The only power that the government actually possesses is the power that it is granted by us.  When we the people collectively stand up for our individual, God-given and constitutionally protected rights, we will awaken to a new day of freedom.

Here is my synopsized, but specific version of the Bill of Rights, followed by the Bill of Rights.

Amendment I  The right of freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and of redress of grievances from the government.

Amendment II  The right and necessity, in order to secure a free state, to form a militia and to keep and bear arms, as a means to defend the people from the government.

Amendment III  The right of consent or refusal to allow soldiers to be quartered in a citizen's home.   

Amendment IV  The right, with very specific rules for mandatory warrants before ANY search on a citizen or his property by the government.

Amendment V  The right, with very specific rules, to ensure due process and protection for life, liberty and property from the government.

Amendment VI  The right, with very specific rules, for the citizen to know the nature and cause of accusation against and to be able to face an accuser, to obtain counsel and to a speedy trial by the government.

Amendment VII  The right to a trial by a jury.

Amendment VIII  The right to not be excessively fined, to not have an excessive bail set and to not be tortured by the government.     

Amendment IX  The rights listed here shall not be interpreted in such a manner as to infringe on other rights listed here.

Amendment X  All powers and prohibited powers, not delegated to the United States in the Constitution are reserved for the states or to the people.

I highly recommend reading the Bill of Rights over and over again.  I also suggest rewording the Bill of Rights and the Constitution itself, in order to fully comprehend the law of the land.  I realize that the FBI and Homeland Security have both put out memos to their agents and to all law enforcement specifically stating that those who quote the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, among a list other groups and individuals, are potential terrorists.  However, this outrageous act, by the very group that the Bill of Rights was penned and ratified to protect we the people from, says all any informed citizen needs to know about the true nature of our federal government.

The Bill of Rights

Amendment 1  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.
