WE in the US enjoy certain rights NOT because we are endowed by our creator of these rights, but because after thrwoing off an oppressive regime that DIDNT believe in those rights, formed a government with a constitution that DECLARED the rights we now enjoy to be mandated and our rule of law to support those rights.
But make no mistake...what we in the US consider 'rights' are not at all respected...honored or enjoyed in other places.
Here, we have a 'right' to a fair trial. Other places? Not so much. We have a right to adequate representation. There? Forget it.
What makes us different?
