    In the United States, we do NOT get our rights from the Constitution or from government. We are born with them, endowed upon us by our creator, whatever form that is meant to take. The Constitution is in place to protect us and our rights from government, spelling out what cannot be done to us, at least without due process. If we got our rights from government (simply put: man) it would be far easier to send people to death camps, like what happened in with Communism and Nazism. If rights are arbitrarily decided by government, they can arbitrarily be taken away.

    This is too vague. Rights are not and are interlaced with freedom depending on how you view them from positive or negative libertarianism. The issue of Freedom v. Right is far more complicated than posited: entire volumes have been written on the political philosophy.

    Look up Issac Berlin, positive and negative freedom on the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. He will set you straight.

    Getting a chance to vote at the national elections means getting your right.

    WRONG. Getting the elected to do the will of the people and not their own is getting your right.

    The Right to life Includes the right to have a doctor prescribe you medication and not be controlled by government.

    Try getting freedom FROM religion?

    This article smells right from the beginning because the author thinks America is a democracy.
