I’ve shown before how the current U.S. constitution was a betrayal of the principles enshrined in the Declaration of Independence. It was a bait-and-switch because there is no intent in the Constitution to provide for the protection of private property, as there is no explicit statement in the document for the protection of private property.
The same is true for the concept of “rights.” Even though the U.S. Constitution is a legal document, the concept of a “right” is never defined or codified.
The Declaration says “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…” but the constitution makes no mention of “Creator” or “unalienable.”
In fact, it says nothing about the Declaration of Independence.
So one is forced to look at legislation for clues as to what judges and lawyers might mean by the concept.
So there you have it. The US constitution is not a de-facto protector of Individual God-given Rights but is in the business of doling out “Constitutional Rights.” No more than privileges granted by the Collective.
So now we see how and why the CONstitution has nothing to do with Individual Rights. Neither the right to property nor the right to self-defense.
And if you’re wondering what “Natural Rights derived from Natural Law” actually means, here’s a link…
