The Fifth Amendment -- not incriminating ourselves. We're the only country with that. Most just throw you in jail.
The Tenth Amendment. If the federal government has all the power, we probably would have no rights to do anything.
The Second Amendment. We're allowed our own weapons to fight for our country. If we didn't own weapons we'd probably die.
The First Amendment. The government can't take away your religion. They can't make you be Catholic or Adventist.
The Third Amendment, about quartering troops in your house. They can't come in and own it. It's important. Soldiers would come in and you fed them, washed their clothes and took care of them. I don't want that to happen.
The Second Amendment, the right to bear arms. The right to kerep guns in your house. It's self defense in case someone breaks in.
