Our rights, given to us by God, and the Government is to protect those rights.

An excerpt fro the Declaration of Independence:

[i]We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.[/i]

[b][i]Do you realize that the 56 signers of this declaration would likely face charges of sedition today?[/i][/b]

The WEF sees that as a privilege still, that can be taken away…

People protested now and were labeled domestic terrorists and sentenced to the maximum penalty that could be given, 14 years in prison. 😡

'Endowed by their creator....."
'All men are created equal.....'

So God gave these rights to white men....not women or people of color. Guess God was OK with slavery.

No God, real or imagined, gave anyone any rights.

@JSul3 [quote] Did God give these rights to white men or not? Did women and people of color get these rights at that time? Is God OK with slavery?

I guess these simple questions are above your pay grade.[/quote]

God gave rights to all men.
At the time the declaration was written women and blacks were 2nd class at best.
Because of ideological advancements (despite democrat resistance) those right are extended to ALL people.

Slavery is a man made enterprise.

I wonder if you can even see these gems of wisdom while you are blocked.

And the Constitution represents the chains used to protect our right and keep the gov't at bay.

Rights come from the people and the state and is protected by the state not god.

You were warned. Hoe does it feel to be on the outside looking in?
