Kage’s Amendments to the US Constitution.

Yes, I did rewrite the amendments to the constitution, thinking an updated version for a modern era was needed. Some are left intact and others altered as need be, but I also extrapolated onto them. Here they are!

Amendment I

Government, be it State, Federal or local shall pass no law in regards to prohibiting, limiting or otherwise abridging, the right to free speech of an individual or of the press. Nor shall they establish an official religion, or infringe on an individuals right to believe whatever bullshit they want, included but not limited to religion or lack thereof, unless said delusion is used a justification for harming another individual. You have the right to believe whatever you want, not the right to force or otherwise hurt others.

Amendment II
Self-defense, being integral to one’s personal survival, of themselves, family or other loved ones, the right to bare armaments, shall not be infringed.

Amendment III
A well-regulated militia, being necessary to a free state, shall be established by the government, to oversee the protection and general welfare of the people during times of war. No citizen shall be forced into the militia, even during times of war. No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

Amendment IV
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Amendment V
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Amendment VI
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

Amendment VII
In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

Amendment VIII
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

Amendment IX
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

Amendment XI
The Government, be it Federal, State or local, shall pass no law in regards to a human beings, of anytime, impeding the sovereignty over their own body.

Amendment XII
The Government, be it Federal, State or Local, shall pass no law prohibiting nature of any kind, unless said nature would cause bodily harm to others.

Amendment XIII
A human being or individual, shall be defined as any sentient being that is of the species Homo-sapiens, or any other future genus that our species might evolve into, and not be discriminated against for sexual orientation, color of skin, religious or other bullshit reasons that one could cultivate in impinging human rights.

Amendment XIV
The Bill of Rights, being exactly what they are, shall not be considered established by the government, but rather seen as the natural rights of humans that they are and as such, the government shall never be able to take them away for any reason or otherwise restrict them!
