American Government and the Constitution Homework Six Answers
U.S. Govt. Constitution Lecture 6 Homework Andrew B
1. I think that it protects the right to keep and bears arms on an indivitual level. Simply because of the wording, “...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” THE PEOPLE. Not the militia, have the right to keep and bears Arms. Which then translates to a militia.
- SUPERB ANSWER. AND THE U.S. SUPREME COURT, BY A 5-4 VOTE, AGREED WITH YOUR INTERPRETATION OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT.
2. I think that the fact that unlimited spending for political campaings is fine! Not only does it level the playing field of elections. It also enables us to see what corperations want certain candidates and why they do.
- SOME MISSPELLINGS, BUT THE SUBSTANCE OF YOUR ANSWER IS EXCELLENT.
3. If the government uses evidence found against someone illegally than they will start doing all sorts of other illegal things. So I think that evidence found illigally should not be allowed to be used against someone. Regardless. I would rather have the possibility of a criminal being released on illegal evidence than have a government with no boundaries.
- VERY GOOD ANSWER AGAIN!
4. Yes it should. Privacy is privacy no matter what it is that is being searched. That is my view on this situation. So many of the things we have today could be searched without warrent if we based it off of what was around at the time of the writing of the fourth amandment. “The right of the people to be secure in their persons,... and effects,... shall not be infringed.” This simply means that people, and their belongings are to be kept secure.
- FABULOUS ANALYSIS.
5. I do not beleive that the free excercise clause should give native americans the right to block progress of roads through what they called, “sacred areas”. If this was allowed to be a “”free execercise” than everybody would be stopping other projects for this same reason. I think that a road is something that is a help and booster to economy and other people’s lives.
- MORE MISSPELLINGS, BUT THE SUBSTANCE OF YOUR ANSWER IS GOOD.
8. The government should absolutely, positively, HAVE to have a warrent before putting a GPS device on somebody’s car to track them. NO MATTER WHAT. As soon as you allow this to happen with no warrent, govenment officials would abuse their right to track whoever they please for whatever reason they so please. It would, in my opinion, directly violate Amendment 4 in the sense that people wouldn’t even be able to feel secure in their own car.
- "WARRANT", NOT "WARRENT". OTHERWISE EXCELLENT.
- TOTAL: 60/60. SUPERB ANSWERS AS TO THEIR SUBSTANCE.
