Goines 1 Protection Rights Granted Under The Constitution Da’Kennya Goines Department of History & Political Science POS 207 April 01, 2017 Introduction The rights of all citizens have not always been equally represented in the United States of America. During times when the Articles of Confederation was still in effect, the confederate states were the one’s whose interest were looked out for.

Citizenship is defined as being a legal resident of any country in which a person resides. Every nation does not have founding framework and amendments which look out for the best interest of their citizens.

With there being so many different religions, ethnicities, cultures, and races living in the United States, the best measure that the government could have done was sufficiently implement laws that encompass the whole instead of just a select few. The First Amendment and its rights to freedom of speech, press, religion and right to assemble is probably one of the most influential Amendments in the Constitution. This amendment made it tolerable in all states to properly support whatever religion in which one believed in without persecution from others. “As a great guarantor of individual freedom, including freedom of speech.” 1 (Monaghan) 1 Monaghan, Henry P.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
