What Constitutional Rights Are At Risk Should Hillary Clinton Become President?

YOUR 1ST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO PRACTICE YOUR RELIGION.  Hillary Clinton would continue Obama’s policies.  His Civil Rights Commission said: “The phrases ‘religious liberty’ and ‘religious freedom’ … remain code words for discrimination, intolerance, racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, Christian supremacy or any form of intolerance”.   She would push for repeal of RFRA, which is the only thing protecting religious freedom at this point.

YOUR 1ST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH.  Hillary Clinton wants to make it illegal for you to band together with like-minded people to speak out on issues in the months leading up to elections.  Of course millionaires and billionaires – as well as labor unions – would be unaffected.  She has advocated the partial repeal of the 1st Amendment to accomplish this – what other people does she wish to muzzle?

YOUR 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHT TO OWN FIREARMS.  Hillary Clinton has said “the Supreme Court got it wrong on the 2nd Amendment” – yet all their rulings did was establish that the 2nd Amendment protects a personal right for sane and law abiding citizens to own firearms.  Many gun control measures are unaffected.  She also has advocated “the Australian model” in which over half the nation’s civilian firearms were confiscated.   In the recent debate she flat out lied about the nature of the Heller decision and why she opposes it.  Heller had nothing to do with toddlers - it was a ban on all handguns and a ban on functional long guns.  This is the law Heller overturned.  Safe storage laws are unaffected, ans are DC's background check and training requirements.  The only reason to want to overturn this historic ruling is to be able to ban handguns.

YOUR 5TH AMENDMENT RIGHT TO DUE PROCESS OF LAW.  In a move opposed by the ACLU, the NAACP and the NRA (among others), Hillary Clinton wants to use the so called “no fly list” to deny firearms rights to people who have never been convicted of anything – in spite of the fact that we do not know how people get on the list and there is no way to get off.  Many people have been on the list in error (even Sen. Kennedy!).  If your due process rights can be denied in this area of law – they can be denied in any area of law.

Hillary Clinton is the only modern presidential candidate to advocate the de facto repeal of portions of the Bill of Rights.  She must not become president.
