Zero Something…

It all starts at zero.

Constitution doesn’t grant rights to people!

An important note about the constitution of the United States of America. Nowhere in that document can you find a definition of the rights of individuals. (OK the “free persons” thing is a little embracing but it was fixed by the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments.) The document does go to great detail about what the rights of the Government are limited to. You might then think that the Bill of Rights defines what rights are granted to people but you would be wrong. The Bill of Rights only enumerates some of the rights of the people further defining what the government can’t do. In the 9th amendment it specifically says that rights not listed are “retained by the people.”

And if you don’t believe that then why would you need a 18th amendment to keep people from drinking? (fixed by the 21st).
