You have swallowed the lie concerning your rights.
Reread these words.
"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."

That sentence says that we are born with these rights inherent in our beings. That sentence says that we all are born with certain rights already intact. That sentence says that we came to be in possession of our natural rights by simply being born.
You better reexamine how you came to believe otherwise.
Right from the very beginning, it was made clear how we came to be in possession of these rights. Your belief that they were somehow written into existance is not only a very dangerous position to take, it is downright treasonable to the principles of a true American. Your beliefs about where our rights come from is incorrect. It says so right in the very beginning of the works left us by the founders.

Only Americans have these rights. People born in this country, or who are legally naturalized into America. No illegal aliens, no people of questionable parentage. Americans. There is something wrong when people are so ashamed of their parents they hide their Birth Certificate.

Utter nonsense.
ALL people have these rights and they too were born with them intact. You make the mistake of thinking that the withholding and/or the infringment of their natural rights is the same as not having them, and that only Americans have natural rights. You are simply mistaken.
What do you think that the "human rights" outcry over Syria is all about on Capitol Hill today anyway?

It is unsettling to learn that many conservatives in this country think their natural rights were written into being, and then try to use it as some sort of elevated moral position over others that were not so lucky as to live here ... no matter how they got here.

reread it again;
"we hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal..."

Please point out the words that support your claim that only Americans have basic human natural rights.

When it comes to the democRats, nobody is covered by the Constitution. You have the jew democRat Senate Judiciary Committee that seems to have gotten its' playbook from right here in Newtown. If you don't like it, get a law changed. Even if its' the most illegal thing going nobody will be able to outspend the government changing it. You get all the gov't offices onboard with a few raises and extra benefits, add in some occasional cash, and your lawyer will be doing circles from school to grave. If you need to re-write history, steal the founding papers and corresponding documents and "reconstruct" the file.

You are not that dense, so surely you can grasp what was actually said.
I did not say foreigners are covered under our constitution.
I said that ALL people all over the world are born with their unalienable rights intact.
Unalienable rights are sometimes called natural rights, or negative rights in law.
When a human is in a "state of natural law", their "natural rights" negate any and all man made laws that say such things like,'you can not kill and eat a California Condor because they are an endangered species'. A person's natural rights, which we ALL possess from birth, trump any and all man made laws, and we ALL possess them.

Again I ask you. What do you think all the fervor is about concerning "human rights" when it pertains to the current debate about going into Syria? What do you think ANY claim of "human rights violations" in a foreign country are all about? Those outcries are about the natural rights of people all over the world who live under tyranny and their basic human and natural rights are being withheld or infringed upon.
Those are NOT rights granted to only an American citizen because of our founding documents. Those claims are a direct reference to where those documents say:
"We hold these truths to be self evident..."
That means that people the world over can see it is true.

"...that all men are created equal..."
There it is ... ALL men are thusly created, NOT just Americans.

"...that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights..."
We ALL get these same rights by simply being born human.

"...that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
There ya go ... basic human rights ... natural rights ... unalienale rights (which means that they are impossible to remove from)

Maybe you could benefit from actually reading what was written and you just may learn that you are 180 degrees off base there guvnor. You are addressing one of the most anti-NWO people there is.
BTW Mr. Lied, Those words concerning being created equal and all, are not from the Constitution. They are from the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, and they form the basis for just how our governmental structure is to secure and guarantee that our government would avoid infringing upon those same rights.

That's what YOU say.
As to gun safety, teaching kids not to pick up or handle ANYTHING which might be a real gun is the proper method. Also to report such things to the nearest adults, especially if other kids are looking at or messing around with the gun.
Safety around guns is avoiding them. Teaching a kid about guns is the best way to get them curious and encourage them to pick up and handle unfamiliar guns.

If this President continues to bypass Congress the American people can bypass the President. He is not a King, and needs to be ignored if he ignores our law making body.

Um, genius, that's the RIGHTIE point of view you've got hold of there, I'm afraid. Liberals have wanted to control guns, to keep them out of people's hands, and however ineffective or misguided those efforts, they clearly indicate that liberals do not want African-Americans to kill one another.
The Right doesn't care or, as in your case, actively supports the killing. It's part of your racist agenda.
hopefully this great post will be put on your head stone soon!

Not totally true. "only real Americans"...?...it covers all those people in the United States legally...and in some cases even those illegally...to include foreign nationals.
