The entire foundation of the US as a nation is that we are created equal, that we have rights given by God which cannot be taken, such as life,
liberty, and to pursue our dreams. If there is no God, then the rights we have are only permitted us by the ruling class (government employees,
police, landlords, employers). Do you want to live in a world where the only rights you have are what others decide you may temporarily have?
Here are the first two sentences of 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.
The Constitution of the United States puts into law restrictions on government which acknowledges our rights and ensures we keep our rights. The very
first right revolves around belief in God, and the right to express that (remember the Church of England was pushed by England as the only religion).
The second right is of self-preservation. Third is against intimidation (England used to board drunken rowdy soldiers in homes of people they
1. Freedom of Speech, Press, Religion and Petition
2. Right to keep and bear arms
3. Conditions for quarters of soldiers
4. Right of search and seizure regulated
5. Provisions concerning prosecution
6. Right to a speedy trial, witnesses, etc.
7. Right to a trial by jury
8. Excessive bail, cruel punishment
9. Rule of construction of Constitution
10. Rights of the States under Constitution
Each right helps support the others. The root of all rights and constraints on government is the belief in God, in a higher being than government
bureaucrats, politicians and their manipulative laws, and enforcers of those laws.
Point is without God, you have no rights. You've evolved from animals and are no different than animals, and have no rights from a higher being, only
rights that a bureaucrat decides you deserve.
