The protection for American Citizens against self incrimination is specifically spelled out in the 5th Amendment of the Bill of Rights.
Because an American is a felon doesn't preclude them from being equally protected by the Bill of Rights.
America is a nation of equal protection laws guarding all citizens against the decisions of the Government and Man.
Do you think there should be some people not protected by the Constitution who reside in America?
Do you support arbitrary judgements?

there was nothing self incriminating against law abiding citizens in National Firearms Act of 1934 in Haynes vs. United States, its was Modern Liberals in 1968 that said that the law was self incriminating towards convicted felons because the convict Miles Edward Haynes was violating law to begin with and charged with failing to register a firearm under the National Firearms Act of 1934 and knew he violating the Law for having a fireman in his possession and these are the same People the Modern Liberals on the left today are saying should not have guns in their possession.

The 5th Amendment protects citizens from having to confess their crimes or participation and involvement in a crime.

That protection is written into the U.S Constitution, whether you understand it or not. That provision has been a protection of Americans since ratification of the Constitution.

If you are charged with a crime and you are asked about the incident on the witness stand under oath, you, being an American Citizen have the right to take the 5th........ You can not be sanctioned for refusing to answer the judge.

Are you a naturalized America?

I understand it very well, he violated federal law to begin with and those modern Liberals thinking on SCOTUS made an bad & poor legal decision on their part which was to benefit the convicted felons here in the US on the way the liberal SCOTUS issued their ruling & decision and it would have been different if it was a law abiding citizen if they failed to register since they were legal to own a firearm.

Remember this is the same Liberal Court that says indiviudals have no legal rights to Social Security which can be reduced or eliminated anytime which is another scam perpetrated by the modern Liberals as FDR called them and it was really only to benefit the Federal Government and the New Left has taken this new so called modern Liberalism to the next step which True Liberalism rejects everything it stands for.

Social Securitys Sham Guarantee

They are not guaranteed legally because workers have no contractual or property rights to any benefits whatsoever. In two landmark cases, Flemming v. Nestor and Helvering v. Davis, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Social Security taxes are not contributions or savings, but simply taxes, and that Social Security benefits are simply a government spending program, no different than, say, farm price supports. Congress and the president may change, reduce, or even eliminate benefits at any time.

Affirmative Actions is not now or ever was a law and, Hate Crimes are applied and equally motivated by Ignorance.

Affirmative Actions are programs intended to affirm the civil rights and guarantees within the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S Constitution by taking positive action to protect them from, "the lingering effects of pervasive discrimination, enacted by White Southern State Legislators.

They were simply enforcing the provisions in the U.S Constitution. They made no striking law...... They just enforce the protection clause contain in the Constitution's 5th Amendment.

That's what the SCOTUS is supposed to do.

Courts in America can not make citizens testify against themselves.

That what it means to be protected from self incrimination.

Well Affirmative Actions aren't laws.

Affirmative Actions is a set of policies or program that affirms your organization's compliance with the provisions of the 14th Amendment.

The Felon violated Federal Law, of which the Federal prosecutors would have never convicted the felon without his cooperation. The 5th Amendment protects that felon and any other citizen from being being made a witness and supplying evidence against themselves in a court of law.

Whether you're a felon or not, you are protected equally by the U.S. Constitution and it's the Supreme Courts' job to enforce those protections.

Not exactly true, When Bush went into the White House the S&P 500 was January 22, 2001,... at 10,578. 20

When Bush Left on Jan 20, 2009 the S&P 500 was 7949

The Market was an indication of the Financial and Economic Collapse of America under the Bush policies. When you consider that at one point the S&P 500 was at 14,000, and for it to close out at 7949 when Bush left Washington was even more of an indication of how great a failure his presidency was.

For crying out loud, there had not been a collapse similar to the collapse of America since the Fall of the Roman Empire.

That's not much for the Republican supporters to be talking about, it is not as if anybody in the world forgot what the Bush policies did to the world's financial system.

why do you think packing the US Supreme Court is so necessary to the Right & the Left which was even needed for FDR because the SCOTUS kept ruling against the New Deal legistlation as Unconstitutional until FDR threaten to remove the justices from the SCOTUS by having congress legistlate their removal by issuing age limits and by even adding more justices to the SCOTUS to obtain favorable rulings regarding New Deal legislation since the US Constitution does not limit the size of the Supreme Court.

Miles Edward Haynes broke the law on his own by possessing a firearm besides he was a convicted felon and thus prohibited from owning a firearm which was the law.

I don't see the correlation with the New Deal and, the 5th Amendment and it's protection against self incrimination.

It's pretty elementary...... You have the right to plead the 5th and not testify or witness against yourself.

You have the right to remain silence, anything you say can be used against you?
