U.S. citizens are born with certain unalienable rights, i.e. rights that aren't subject to review or termination by a judge or bureaucrat. A trend in academia and politics is to deny the existence of these rights, because out of necessity they must arise from source beyond the purview of men (the "Creator"). I'd like to see what some of the posters here think about the concept of unalienable rights. If they are legitimate rights, what is their source? If they are not legitimate, what then limits the power of the government over the lives of citizens?
