    I believe he meant that you don't have a constitutional right not to right whatever you want in someone else's newspaper if they don't want you to, and that it is alright to be fired for doing so.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    I think that everyone who claims I'm wrong is very, very confused.

    Without people to amend the constitution they STILL would not have those rights. Again, at the signing of the constitution they didn't have those rights. A group of people created the constitution, society decided to follow it. Do you really think if something extremely catastrophic happened to this country the constitution would protect you?

    Watching you massage a really bizarre strawman for 10+ pages borders on insanity.

    And, without the rights that were endowed by our creator, people couldn't inact those rights.

    If something very, extremely, like totally catastrophic happened to this country, the 2nd Amendment will do a great job of protecting me.

    What else would you call it? Why would you claim that people have a right to insert their beliefs in somebody else's newspaper against their will or else its a violation on the constitution? Who makes such a bizarre claim and changes it around every other page.

    If those rights were endowed by a "creator" blacks would have had the same rights as whites and women could have voted from the creation of the constitution. They didn't.m no creator was endowing anything.

    And, we do. If not for those rights, endowed by our creator, we wouldn't have them and neither would you.

    If those rights were endowed by our creator they would have been there AT THE BEGINNING. Or are you suggesting the creator just decided later that blacks should have the same rights as whites and women should vote later on.
