    Look up the term psychopath then explain how it applies to to caring what progressives think.
    Right....

    So people of a certain political affiliation should not have rights? Sorry buddy, but normal (see: non-psychopathic) people simply don't see things that way. I'm sure most conservatives and libertarians will agree with me when I say that rights are not earned, bought or inherited. In fact, pretty sure that the constitution holds rights as natural, as self evident. Not earned. Otherwise, should a newborn baby have rights? Or a special needs children?

    Rights should not be for trespassers.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
