Whose job do you believe it is to protect the Constitution of the USA (Bill of Rights)? Is it important to protect the Constitution?

What do you believe is the most important job of Govt?

Natural Rights guaranteed by the Constitution.....
The classic definition of "natural rights" are "life, liberty, and property", but these need to be expanded somewhat. They are rights of "personhood", not "citizenship". These rights are not all equally basic, but form a hierarchy of derivation, with those listed later being generally derived from those listed earlier.

Personal Security (Life):

(1) Not to be killed.

(2) Not to be injured or abused.

Personal Liberty:

(3) To move freely.

(4) To assemble peaceably.

(5) To keep and bear arms.[18]

(6) To assemble in an independent well-disciplined[13] militia.

(7) To communicate with the world.

(8) To express or publish one's opinions or those of others.

(9) To practice one's religion.

(10) To be secure in one's person, house, papers, vehicle[14], and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures.

(11) To enjoy privacy in all matters in which the rights of others are not violated.[7]

Take from the poor and give to the rich. OOPS, no, the other way around. Take from taxpayers and give to non-taxpayers? Naaah, take from taxpayers and give to political friends and family. Yeah. <<rimshot>>

The Federal government should:
- protect our borders.
- protect our interest abroad.
- protect our currency.
- protect our Constitution with the active help of every citizen.

Hence we should get rid of every politician who does NOT care about the Constitution (that would be at least half of them).

.....

Whose job? Every last standing US citizen and Yes it is important enough to defend it with my life and have always been fully prepared to.

Be concerned...be very concerned as those we've placed in position to defend it aren't.
