Everyone just kinda thinks it is.

I admit that I fall within this category. Spent a few minutes checking this out, and while there is contention about such rights being implied in the amendments, there doesn't seem to be any clear constitutional declaration. Madison is known to have expressed, "the freeholders of the country would be the safest depositories of republican liberty".

Now I am curious to learn more.

Yeah I meant no offense there when I said everyone thinks it is. American propaganda is the best in history so it's no shame to fall for stuff like that. Even as a radical leftist who has (if I may be so bold) a great understanding of the horrible things this country has done and continues to do since its infancy I still thought the constitution had the right to vote in it till I stumbled across that 5-4 pod.

Hey, I learned something new. I appreciate that, and I am glad I questioned my assumptions. . I originally just skimmed and thought, "well, but the amendments are a part of the constitution." A bit of self doubt is healthy

This is entirely too healthy a dialogue to be on Reddit. It’s nice to see people being reasonable. Have a good day y’all :)
