    Did not know that. My Cato addition uses the "u". Which did the original version use?

    I would say that we can only apply them where the person in question falls under our jurisdiction, not just American Citizens. Otherwise, we could prosecute non-citizens for certain speech and whatnot.

    I remember reading that the founders actually had an argument about inalienable vs. unalienable, which basically boiled down to "well, at Harvard we say unalienable" and "well, at Cambridge we say inalienable."
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    I believe the original was "unalienable" but I find the word "inalienable" to be less awkward, however both forms are acceptable.

    Good catch. You are correct. This is a more accurate interpretation of what I was trying to communicate.

    fyi Re: What other rights are unalienable to all men?

    And women too.

    All activities a person does by and to himself, as long as he does not violate the rights of others to do likewise, and as long as he does not violate the property of others.

    Examples: A person has a right to live and manage his own affairs, a right to own property and use it as he pleases, and a right to be independent.

    A person does NOT have a right to other people's property or to force others to do things they wish not to do. Neither does government.

    There is no such thing as unalienable rights.
    The rights described above ARE unalienable -- i.e. sacrosanct.

    Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is what it says, but only when it does not impede on the rights of others.
    Women, of course have the additional right to always being right, even if it's wrong.
