As many know there was much debate about the idea to include or not include a bill of rights into the constitution. Both sides in my opinion made some interesting points. As history shows, those in favor won the day. But here in 2017, looking back, are you glad they are included or wish they never were?
As I saw it, the federal government has enumerated powers and the bill of rights can cloud that issue to some people. However it was recently pointined out to me that in 2017 we may be fortunate for having the bill of rights as without them the federal government may not have simply overreached to the extent they already have but further into speech, guns, property rights, etc. An intriguing thought.
Where do you stand?
