"Declaring what has always been doesn't mean that they did not exist before the declaration. The rights mentioned were granted by the Creator and thus have always been." - JoshRandall


Without government you don't even have the right to breath. A pack of your fellow apes can come in and beat the crap out of you and kill you just because they don't want you stepping over into their territory. Who is to say they can't if there is no government to stop them?

That's natures way and that's the way it worked for millions of years until homo sapiens finally invented government to make rules and regulations. The only rights we have are the ones that our government says we have. Other than that the only right that is guaranteed is death.
