In response to Reubenhop's comment:
You deftly point out that men are flawed, and God is not. That you can't see God at work in the founding fathers recognizing our rights is to your detriment, not your advantage.
It is dangerous to think that rights are created by men. You consider the founding fathers to be evil, and yet you consider Obama to be angelic. That, my friend, is the danger in dependence on man.
The point is that rights are rationally determined by the people. The Founders were exceptional people, but still imprisoned in the environment of their times. Hence slavery was legal and they had a whole Amendment devoted to quartering. And we should not be imprisoned by that environment now.
And the Founders are in no way evil: that's just a nonsense retort by you. And Obama is no angel: again a nonsense retort. Why do you feel it necessary too so grossly exaggerate the views of liberals? It really shows a high level of willful ideological ignorance. Think more.
I get your point, it is just that I think you are wrong. People don't determine rights, people determine privledges.
As far as quartering troops and slavery, two different issues. Let's take the more interesting one: quartering troops. So, is it your position that being protected against quartering troops is no longer an issue. So, in your view, that means what, that you no longer have to fear quartering troops, or that it is O.K. to have the government demand you quarter troops?
