    This whole statement makes no sense to me Albert.

    When the Constitution says something is a RIGHT...then it is a RIGHT.
    Period.
    The Constitution was not based on compromise at all. It laid out very specifically the inalienable RIGHTS we have that cannot legally be messed with.
    That's not a compromise.
    Maybe I am just missing your point?

    Way to fail to actually address any of the questions in my previous post.

    Who are you talking to? I think Albert left in disgust (or confusion; it's hard to tell) hours ago. :rolleyes:

    In Albert's defense (for a change) he has a point. The Constitution was a radical document. When the Articles of Confederation proved to be too weak, a convention was called to modify them. Instead, the Convention produced the Constitution and an entirely new form of government for the United States. It was controversial and there was a lot of resistance to it. The framers (Federalists) felt it was fine as written, but the opposition (Anti-federalists) felt it gave too much power to the federal government (or general government as it was called) and insisted it needed a Bill of Rights. When there was a danger it would not be ratified, a compromise was reached and in exchange for Anti-federalist support for ratification, the Federalists agreed to add a Bill of Rights in the form of amendments.

    Even after it was ratified though, there wasn't any more compromise in politics than there are today. Jefferson hated Hamilton, and pretty much ended his friendship with Adams.

    When someone is being stridently contrarian it's hard to have compromise or understanding.

    ^^^Still, without compromise on the Bill of Rights, there would not have been ratification and no Constitution.
