First Come Our Rights, Then the Government

Declaration of Indepedence by David Amsler

Most Americans can recite the first part of the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, or at least paraphrase it.  It is here where we read that all Men are created equal and have been given the rights of life, liberty and property not by the government, but by “their Creator”.  It is on this that our government rests—regardless of what the Supreme Court says.

It’s nice when law professors agree:

• The rights of individuals do not originate with any government, but pre-exist its formation.
• The protection of these rights is both the purpose and first duty of government.
