no they existed before the founders, even back to the time of Rome.
slaves were considered property and not people
name one?, and please dont give me one where you infringe on the rights of other people...ie...like killing someone
rights follow nature, because they are our natural abilities
if man made rights on his own accord he would create rights to material goods and services, which lay a cost of burden, and no such right exist.
the founders made it known that where rights came from objective because they are not from government, but whether or not the came from god, or nature, or what your belief is, that is subjective
the founders had no power to end slavery within the states, when they did have power they ended it [Northwest Ordinance].
whether you believe rights are from god, nature, a huge beast beneath the sea, the founders left that up to you its subjective, but they made it objective that rights don't come from man.
u.s. federal enabling laws recognize the principles of the DOI, and one principal is natural law....the constitution states, the federal courts have authority over things which arise from the constitution, ..rights don't arise from the constitution
rights do not arise [originate] from the constitution.
