The Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution

I have heard there is a movement afoot to restore the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution. In honor of this noble movement, I offer the following quotation, which I feel is never inappropriate to repeat even though I'm sure you are all familiar with it:

    First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
    —Reverend Martin Niemoller
