TWO KINDS OF AMERICANS; THOSE FOR THE RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE AND THOSE FOR THEIR OWN RIGHTS AND OPPOSED TO THE RIGHTS OF EVERYONE ELSE.August 21st, 2014
It would appear that there are essentially two kinds of Americans.
There are Americans who vigorously defend their Rights under the U.S. Constitution; then there are Americans who vigorously defend all Americans’ Rights under the U.S. Constitution. This is two distinctively different kinds of Americans.
For example, there are some Americans who believe all women should have a Constitutional Right to have a legal medical abortion, if they choose; then, there are some Americans who would never approve of an abortion their self, but they believe that no other American women should have a legal Right to have an abortion.
This is two distinctively different kinds of Americans. If no one is require to have an abortion, then why should any woman be deprived the right of a legal abortion; religious concepts should not be an issue since the First Amendment is the separation of church and State.
It would appear that if the U.S. Constitution is to be the legal determinant, it would be important to know what the Constitutional forefather’s had in mind. From the way the U.S. Constitution reads, it would appear that the writers’ were inclusive in their Rights for Americans; or, if your Rights are not being violated, do not restrict the Rights of others.
All of this is related to the differences in the terms freedom and liberty. Freedom appears to be a singular thing, and absolute freedom to do as you please; whereas, liberty appears to be inclusive and limited freedom, to the extent you do not deprive others of their freedom in exercise of your own freedom.
The American Constitutional interpretation of the freedom of the American People would appear to be, limited freedom, simply described as no American has the right to call out “Fire” in a crowded theater, to cause panic, injury, or death to the audience.
Legally, there should not be an issue in America. Unfortunately, some recent decisions by 5 Justices, a majority, on the U.S. U.S. Supreme Court has caused some question about liberty.
But every American should consider these issues.
