Chris Cuomo Rejects Declaration Of Independence

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights…”

We all learned those words as kids in school. They are the acknowledgement by the Founders that our rights are not the gift of government, but instead are fundamental to our humanity. That understanding is essential to our entire understanding of human rights and the nature of government.

Unfortunately, Chris Cuomo doesn’t seem to believe that, and rejected this founding concept in a discussion with Chief Justice Roy Moor of Alabama (whose recent antics I find objectionable for other reasons).

“Our rights do not come from God, your honor, and you know that. They come from man... That’s your faith, that’s my faith, but that’s not our country. Our laws come from collective agreement and compromise.”

Of course, the problem with Cuomo’s assertion is that it would legitimize the elimination of any right by a majority of the people. It would mean, for example, that we could strip Cuomo of his right to report the news or forbid the practice of Islam I this country. As such, no transcendent rights would exist, merely ephemeral privileges that could be revoked.

Comments on Chris Cuomo Rejects Declaration Of Independence

Hello Mr. Aydt. I see you have stumbled onto GOPLifer's blog and got the "experience" of the people that post there very quickly. Watch your back over there, for as you have noticed they will dig out your personal information and post it freely in hopes of threatening you and running you off. They finally ran me away by resorting to threats against my mom after digging out my birth certificate.

I have marked your blog here as a favorite. I don't deal with Facebook so can't follow you there. Keep up the good work.

On your topic here, it is scary that the left believes that rights are not really rights, just privileges that can be taken away by the tyranny of the majority. I think that is a fundamental difference between the left and right.

Yeah -- once they decided I wasn't one of their fellow fake Republicans or "concerned" Democrats, anything I had to say was irrelevant. I was particularly amused at the offense taken when I told one of the commenters she was not worth my time AFTER she said she was done with me -- I was deemed sexist and insulting. And the odd thing was that all it took was a single comment by me -- making a point they should have agreed with -- that led to all the politics of personal destruction.
