Freedom of speech, religion, assembly, and the press. The right to bare arms was recently affirmed as an individual right, at least on federal land like Washington, D.C. The right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures (don't try arguing that you have this right at school kids- the Supreme Court seems to think all searches and seizures are reasonable there), the right to a jury trial, the right to an attorney (assuming you can afford one unless you're looking at a year or more of prison time), the right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment (the death penalty is apparently cruel but not unusual). That should get you started.

Cady Originally Answered: How many U.S. citizens have been out of the country?
I have lived in central america, Guatemala, and no not in the city in one of the outside towns. It was a wonderful expereince and I learned alot I didn't have a washer or dryer so I had to learn to wash clothes by hand in something they called a "pila" It helped me with my spanish and also to realize how rich of a country the US really is

Freedom of speech, religion, assembly. Freedom from unannounced intrusion into your domain. Freedom from self incrimination. Actually I think any constitution that doesn't have the 'Bill of Rights' as already written would be woefully inadequate. Why even try to fix something that isn't broken. Our bill of rights is still in place unchanged and still growing strong. Don't believe me, just turn on your TV. Good luck to you

In the country? As opposed to the city? Peace and quiet, I reckon. Considering the laws about disturbing the peace, it seems to be more of a right in the country.

Sounds dead on to me. The constituents of any politician are the ones who ensure is ability to represent them. Quite frankly, constituents' health...should not be considered above money, but above citizenship within said country.
