An always smarter-than-me liberal refused to answer this question. So, why not post it to all? Very simple. Are all rights created equal? Do some rights warrant a permit to exercise that right, thus meaning it's not really a right but a privilege that the government can permit, or not? Do some rights warrant a fine or payment of cash to be allowed to practice it? Do some rights carry the burden of showing an ID or going through a background check to practice them? Very simple question. Are rights created equal? If the govt can give/take the right, is it really a "right" or a privilege? If we have no rights, but only privileges that the govt can take, give, manage, then what exactly are we as a people?????????
