… We'd all probably be in trouble.
But someone had the bright idea to see which parts of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and all the Amendments are “liked” best — Facebook style.
The First Amendment is currently first in likes. Which is nice, considering when the Founding Fathers wrote the original Bill of Rights, it wasn't.*+
It's way ahead of the 4th Amendment, which is in second.
Big surprise: Nobody likes the 18th Amendment at this point.
When the original bill of rights was presented to the public, the first amendment had to do with the number of people per Representative. The second had to do with not changing the pay for members of Congress until after an election had occurred.
The first never passed. The second was resurrected about 200 years later and passed in 1992.
That we think of as the First Amendment was actually the third one in the list of 12, and everything else was down two digits, too.
