Just American trying to live up to brithish linguist complexity, :p

It's on legal rights and who they are to. The Amendment protects all of the rights of people who are not mentioned elsewhere in the Constitution.

It, along with the tenth, means that ANY free action you might take cannot be against the law of the Fed. govt. UNLESS the Fed. govt. was specifically given the power to regulate your action in that regard by the constitution.

It means exactly what it says presumably.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.
