Checks and Balances

The 3 Amendments I think is the most important is the first Amendment because you have Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Press, Freedom of Religion, Freeedom to gather peacefully, and Freedom to protest against the government. Another Amendment I would choose is Amendment 3 because you do have to be forced to house a troop. And last I would choose the Amendment 4 because I do not want to be searched for an unreasonable reason.
