    These rights are listed in our Constitution, are they not ?
    If someone is trying to "take" them away, should not the man spend his own money.....as a cost of living ??
    And IF the "take away of the right" was illegal, then those who tried this would be subject to a lawsuit.
    Pollyanna ?
    There is MORE to this, is there not ??
    There are more rights than just those enumerated in the Constitution.

    Myself, I think as a practical matter, there has to be a limit to how much money we would spend to secure rights for someone.

    So how much money do you think a person's human rights are worth? How much do you believe it would be appropriate for the government to spend to secure human rights for a single person?
    There should be no limit. For the simple fact that if you secure one persons Right to <X> from being infringed then you secure everyones Right to <X>. If you infringe on one persons Right to <X> then precedent is set and you can infringe on everyones Right to <X>.

    But what if the group of people to whom <X> is applicable is very very small? Not all rights apply to everyone.

    Really? Human lives do, why wouldn't morality have monetary value as well?

    All Rights do apply to everyone. Whether a person uses that Right or not is entirely up to them.
