The omission of a bill of rights proved to be a mistake almost fatal to the Constitution. New York and several other states agreed to ratify with the promise that the First Congress would add rights to the Constitution through the amendment process.

These states might have rejected the Constitution without the promise of a future bill of rights. In A Tale of a Tub by Jonathan Swift (–), a tub is tossed to an angry whale to divert it from attacking a boat.

This satirical phrase was applied to the constitutional amendments to secure individual rights (the Bill of Rights) because “like a tub thrown out to a whale” they diverted attention away from adopting more substantial amendments that would change the structure of the.

The second reason was that the Bill of Rights was used, by Antifederalists, as a rallying point to argue in favor of the pre-constitutional status quo -- a confederation of independent states, operating under the glorified treaty that was the Articles of deralists no doubt knew that a debate over the content of a Bill of Rights could delay the adoption of the Constitution.

In many respects Sir Bartholomew Shower, an ardent Jacobite, seems an unlikely author for a tract urging the extension and refinement of the Bill of Rights. And yet there is little doubt that he wrote the essay. Shower was the son of a prosperous Exeter merchant. Preamble to the Bill of Rights *Congress of the United States begun and held at the City of New-York, on Wednesday the fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.

THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a. Amending the federal Constitution to include a bill of rights was the essential political compromise in the creation of the United States government.

Even though Federalists believed that individual rights were fully protected by state and common law, they knew that Anti-Federalists would never embrace the new Constitution until amendments.

NEW The New Bill of Rights. Nearly everything has changed in the United States since the Bill of Rights was written and adopted. We still see the original words when we read those first 10 Amendments to the Constitution, yet the meaning is vastly different now. And no wonder. We've gone from a country of a few million to a few hundred million.

Congress Creates the Bill of Rights. Within the half-billion pages of records in the care of the Center for Legislative Archives, there are some special treasures from the First Congress that show how the ratification of the Constitution necessitated the creation of the Bill of Rights, and how the creation of the Bill of Rights, in turn, completed the Constitution.

Of the states that initially ratified the Constitution, many included amendments and cries for a second Constitutional Convention.

Learned Hand was a wonderful federal judge. His work was often cited in Supreme Court decisions. Here, we have a chance, in this slender volume, to get a sense of his view of the Bill of Rights/5(1). This book is a detailed review of the case for a new Bill of Rights to more effectively protect economic, political, judicial, communication and personal rights and freedoms in the UK.
