    So answer to your question - removing the sexism - yes, people in our society can give and take away rights. We do that through the democratic process.

    I happen to not agree with the death penalty nor the "stand your ground" laws, but have been overruled by the "collective"


    if someone kills ...murders, then his rights are no longer secure......

    stand your ground,...... enforces property owner rights, to use deadly force if threaten........you cannot kill just to kill.

    so if people give themselves rights, ....then if 51% decide to take rights away from the 49% ........since the power to give is also the power to take.........your fine with that, even though it violates the founding principles of the DOI.

    collective rule is majority rule, the founders gave us rule of law........not majority rule.

    So you're saying that without a supernatural entity (deity) getting involved, we would have no rights at all?

    And how do you know all liberal-minded types believe that?

    nations, which have rights created by the people, are democracies.

    our founders state rights, come from a higher power

    the u.s. was not created a representative democracy....because to be a democracy it would have to have been created as a democratic form of government, and it was not.

    article 4 section 4 of the constitution states our government is .....republican.

    for something to be democratic it must be a vote of the people..

    the constitution of the founders, makes only the [house] a democratic body, the senate and electoral college are not a democratic body.

    He's dodging your question. And it's obvious why

    as soon as you asked it, he changed his claim from "endowed by a creator" or just plain "endowed"

    Yes, I do choose to believe what is real and true over wild exaggerate over generalizations. I'm fine with that.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
