This is how the Government tries to trick you to think they can skirt your constitutional rights! - By Executive Orders!
This according to the video.
But watch the ending - explaining that NO Executive Order can legally take away our Unalienable Rights because of the definition of Unalienable:
Not to be separated, given away, or taken away; inalienable: "All of them . . . claim unalienable dignity as individuals" (Garrison Keillor).
# S: (adj) inalienable, unalienable (incapable of being repudiated or transferred to another) "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable
Main Entry: in·alien·able
Pronunciation: \(ˌ)i-ˈnāl-yə-nə-bəl, -ˈnā-lē-ə-nə-\
Etymology: probably from French inaliénable, from in- + aliénable alienable
Date: circa 1645
: incapable of being alienated, surrendered, or transferred
This would mean Our rights are guaranteed and cannot be taken away or transferred to anyone - Government, The Feds, Cops - so that they may take them
What are these rights?
Here is where WE have a Big Problem. These rights are NOT Guaranteed by The Constitution! They are written in the Declaration of Independence! A
document, though important, does Not carry the legal weight the Constitution does.
Excerpt from The Declaration of Independence:
"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and
to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent
respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain [unalienable Rights],
that among these are [Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness].--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their
just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People
to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to
them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be
changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are
sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing
invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such
Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the
necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated
injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States."
So it now seems that these Executive Orders CAN take away all these things the video says it can because they are Not Protected by the Constitution at
least by this word; Unalienable !
As much as I would LOVE the video to be true, it is Not as it takes something in the Declaration of Independence and tries to apply it to the
