...which, by the admission of the above fact, would make Abraham Lincoln a tyrant.
Hey, look, someone who gets it! Imprisoning the unfriendly media, only 'freeing' slaves in opposing states, and invading said states for not
wanting to pay you (sorry, I should say 'being slaver-y'?) does NOT make you an exemplar of American ideals...
I'm routinely amused at the concept that anyone in the USA possesses any "right" which does not immediately and aptly benefit the nation's
leadership, investment class, or position in some charade-like squabble between the two marionettes.
I'll disagree with you on this one - just because the government tramples and routinely ignores God-given rights does not mean they are invalid, nor
make them apply as you indicate - the government merely disabuses people of the validity of said rights and assumes more power and authority well
above and beyond them to claim the benefits you mention.
Our rights as properly defined state that we should do as we will as long as we don't intrude upon the rights of others to do the same.
Government's failure to recognize such, or greed in not allowing it, does not negate this truth.
