Sorry dude, you're wrong on almost all of these counts and clearly don't understand the American system of government and law.
- Number 1 is totally wrong. We don't derive our rights from being represented in congresses and George Carlin is funny but they aren't privileges.
- Number 2 is totally wrong. Groups don't have rights. We recognize some groups as lacking sufficient majority to access their natural rights via the common channels of commerce, society and government so we make laws to reinforce their access to their rights.
- Number 3 is not just wrong it's the definition of a totalitarian state - so please stop voting.
- Number 4 is a problem. The only quote I see in the posts you might be referencing is quoting the Constitution, not "liberty and justice for all" from the Pledge of Allegiance. The Constitution can be found in the first section of the first chapter of the first book of US law.
- Number 5 is wrong. It's like saying that the primary function of a company is being a company. Organizations exist to execute mandates not to be organized. Our government's purpose is specifically to, "establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence (SP.), promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity..." See the BLESSINGS OF LIBERTY part? Take a closer look.
- Number 6 is a paraphrase from fucking MAO, "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun." Here in the United States we believe that liberty comes from our creator (whoever we think that might be) and that it is protected by OUR continued maintenance of the capacity and right to use force. So, you're kind of right but if you elaborated I'm sure you'd show how wrong you can be about it.
- Number 7 is a bizarre statement. Justice in the United States is about protecting people's rights to life, liberty and property. That's why it's POSSIBLE TO BE GUILTY OR INNOCENT. When someone deprives someone of their RIGHT to life, they are guilty of murder. GET IT?
The individual is the source of ALL RIGHTS, ALL RESPONSIBILITIES and ALL POWERS. The Declaration of Independence works like the givens for a geometric proof. "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." There is no society contemplated here. Society is a collection of individuals that, JUST LIKE GOVERNMENT, is never presumed to have more rights than the individual.
Individuals have certain responsibilities that go along with those rights. "But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security." We have a duty to correct or abolish our government if it fails to protect and serve our rights AS INDIVIDUALS.
The particular limits on government called out in the Bill of Rights is instructive here. They are the rights necessary to correct or abolish our government or to establish and run one.
- 1st Amendment - Free speech (exactly how does SOCIETY speak?) and free assembly (which can be two people or a million) - This is the right that we use freely AS INDIVIDUALS and that we grant to the government for the formation of courts, administration, departments, congresses, etc.
- 2nd Amendment - Right to keep and Bear Arms - This is a right we use AS INDIVIDUALS and a right we grant to local governments for policing and to our national government for FBI and military. Our individual right to bear arms is also what qualifies our courts as those belonging to a free people. WE THE PEOPLE are the convening authority of our courts. If only the police and military had the right to bear arms then THEY would be the convening authority of our courts.
The list goes on. But the idea is that there is NOTHING in US law that society of the government is permitted to do that is not directly derived from rights belonging to the individual. And ALL POWERS granted to the government are granted under strict conditions.
It's forgivable that you don't know this. Democrats hate this stuff. It tends to seem quaint and it gets in the way of their plans. Nevertheless, it's true. When there weren't so many idiots in the news, discussion about progressive politics often centered on whether they could be permitted under the Commerce Clause since that is the door through which Democrats have driven their giant bus load of change.
