    - The Right to face your accusor
    - The Right to a fair and speedy trial
    - The Right to an attorney
    - The Right to remain silent
    - The Right to humane treatment

    These are the rights our founding fathers fought for. Not some petty grievances because a political party other than your own is in power. Where was the TeaParty when the Government was trampling on basic human rights?

    And yet not a single one of those has been violated. By the way? The "right" to Humane treatment was not part of anything the Government originally agreed to.

    Clinton approved Courts that meet in secret and remove citizenship from naturalized citizens with out those citizens even knowing they were being tried. Clinton approved Courts that take your money and then require you to prove your innocent to get it back.

    You do remember Innocent until proven guilty don't you?

    The Patriot act has been approved by Democrats since its inception and Obama has signed it into law as well.

    Wasn't it you in another thread who argued that there are no natural rights; that only society can grant and revoke rights?

    If I am correct in that recollection, then it shouldn't matter to you if society as defined by government tramples on any so called rights should it?

    Those rights were routinely ignored by the previous administration. We still hold men in prison without charges and have not conducted trials in over seven years. These human rights violations make our motives suspect around the world.
    The prohibition agqainst cruel and unusual punishment was approved by our founding fathers

    Again...where were the TeaBaggers then?

    No such thing as inalienable rights.

    The concept as preposterous as immortality

    I defy any of you to show me one of those rights of your that I couldn't entirely alienate from you with a bullet.

    Now if you're talking about those rights denied to people in society?

    Yeah, sometimes people aren't extended the rights they're theoretically granted by the law.

    And yes, I didn't see the TP movement complaining when that was happening to people at GITMO.

    But the typical TP participant doesn't give a rat's all about those people, so naturally they were not moved to act.

    i'd say you don't really have standing for that criticism, Frankie babe.

    Which relates to the concept of Liberty...

    Something which means more than the fact that teabaggers no longer have their candidates in office anymore
