"Let me start out by saying that I don't agree with your use of the word "right." The correct word is "privilege." None of what you listed below is a Constitutionally-given "right"--they're merely privileges (oft-abused, at that) of living in a free country."

Privileges can be taken away.

I believe Jefferson spoke of certain inalienable rights, endowed by our creator.

The fact is that living in America is a privilege and a blessing because the American culture recognizes these and many other rights!!
