Alright, I'll go first.
Five hundred seventy-six years. That was the interval between Magna Carta and the ratification of the Bill of Rights.
Half a millennium.
Across that time countless numbers of people who could have been your neighbors, friends, and family paid the price in blood, smoke, and treasure to wrest from government the rights in the Bill of Rights.
In his liberty-or-death speech, Patrick Henry asked when did government ever willingly a relinquish power, meaning willingly yield to a right.
The cost paid to obtain the rights in the Bill of Rights was very high. Over five hundred years of decent human beings burned at the stake (Mary Tudor, Fifth Amendment), having their ears cut off, disposed of their jobs and property, imprisoned, the English Civil War and all its dead and maimed, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.
The Price was massive.
I do not want to have to pay that price again to recover something already paid for in blood, smoke, and treasure.
I shall not yield, I shall not concede. Not not even one inch.
