The Bill of Rights that the Anti-federalists demanded so much is completely unnecessary and extra. For example, as Mr.Thames stated in his book, “ Regular elections, three branch that checked one another’s power, the preservation of local governments, trial by jury, habeas corpus protect liberty more effectively than a limited list of rights“(69). The habeas corpus says that a person can report an unlawful detention or imprisonment to a court and request that the court order the custodian of the person, usually a prison official, to bring the prisoner to court, to determine whether the detention is lawful. Also, the trial by jury says that all American citizens should have the right to trial by a jury. The checks and balances says that each of the three branches of government can limit the powers of the others. This shows that there are many ways that the constitution protects the people’s rights and the bill of rights are not needed to protect them. In addition, if the bill of rights states all the rights people have then what if something isn’t listed on there? For instance, if the Bill of Rights didn’t say that people have the rights to privacy then does that mean people can just come to your room and stalk on you legally.
