What are the most important changes to the document from which the U.S. was founded on that we should always carry out in our lives and remember. In parenthesees is what the ammendments guarantee to the citizens

The Top Ten

1 First Amendment (Freedom of Speech, Religion, The Press, and Peaceful Assembly)

Glad there isn't much obsessing over that stupid second amendment. Americans are so irresponsible sometimes. That's why we have an electoral college.

This is what liberty is made of. this is top 2 for me - boltslegend

2 Fourth Amendment (Protection Against Unreasonable Searches)

It got Shredded after 9/11

The Nsa and the patriot act killed this act

3 Fifth Amendment (Protection Against Unfair Treatment In The Legal Process)
4 Sixth Amendment (Right To A Quick Trial)
5 Seventh Amendment (Right To A Trial By Jury)
6 Thirteenth Amendment (Slavery Is Illegal)

I think this should be second. - funnyuser

This is 3rd in my opinion behind the first two - boltslegend

7 Eighth Amendment (Protection Against Excessive Fines Cruel And Unusual Punishments)
8 Nineteenth Amendment (All American Citizens Have The Right To Vote Regardless Of Sex)

Worst one.

9 Twenty-Second Amendment (The President Can't Serve Any More Than Eight Years)
10 Second Amendment (Right To Bear Arms)

It protects the other rights and ensures that the government doesn't turn tyrannical. I'm not a psycho gun lover but defense against crime and tyranny is important - boltslegend

The Contenders

11 Twenty-Fifth Amendment (If The President Dies The Vice President Must Take Over)
