Let's start with Freedom of Speech.

And I'd rag on a Democrat if they pulled the same stunts as have been forced upon the US and indeed the world over the past 6 years. I have little respect for people who violate the US constitution that are actually in positions to enforce it.
I hope you felt the same way about Clinton's administration because his administration took away more of our liberties and we were not even at war.
Really? What liberties did Bill Clinton take away from us?
You're no longer to able to speak freely in our country. You must be sensitive in what you say, if you say something mean or bigoted then it's considered a hate crime (especially if you're White and you're saying something hateful about a minority group).
Freedom of Speech means protection for your speech, no matter how distateful it may be to some. This constitutional right was not written to enforce nonoffensive speech. It was meant to protect what is to some, offensive speech.
Here's the First Amendment if you are interested:
Racial Profiling is illegal
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freddom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the peoiple peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Clinton's administration downsized the government's Intelligence bureaus and then bound their hands so they could no longer profile seedy characters properly. It's the reason why little old ladies are screened at airports while shady characters are not.
Let's say you see some swarthy men of Middle Eastern descent somewhere in the Heartland. You watch with interest as they're unloading something into a reservoir. Make certain you're not motivated by racial profiling before you call the FBI. You might get arrested for a hate crime. Remember, we are at war right now. But I guess it doesn't matter if you lose your life as long as you don't lose your political sensitivity and politcal correctness. You don't want Clinton's legacy to go up in smoke, do you?
Freedom of Religion
Our Founding Fathers guaranteed us "Freedom of
Religion" not "Freedom from
Religion". But Clinton's administration tried to erect a wall of separation between church and state. Despite what the left says the alleged "wall of separation between church and state" doesn't exist. It cannot be found in any of the constitutional documents.
Because of Clinton's administration Americans are no longer able to pray in public. This means that local children are not able to pray on their own in a park before a baseball game or any other public event. I don't belong to any religion, but it is terrible when a person's freedom is taken away.
They also tried to change the Pledge of Allegence. Now remember, saying the Pledge of Allegence is optional in schools. But they wanted you to believe that it was unconstitutional.
And as someone else has already mentioned- Americans are not allowed to display religious symbols on certain holidays in public; nor sing Christmas carols in public.
Gore created a Ritalin program, which forced children to take medication even if the parents and child were against it. Children, deemed hyperactive in public schools, are forced to undergo psychological treatment (mind control) and take medication. Who makes the distinction between a hyperactive child and an immature child? Overtired teachers and pill popping psychologists? This program has already incured faults. Some of the children who were medicated were in fact- not hyperactive, but simply immature children.
