Rights Don’t Depend on Politicians

If there is one message I’d most like to share with you during these times, it’s that your rights don’t depend on the opinions of politicians.

Whatever mandates are issued, whatever legislation is imposed, your natural human rights remain completely unchanged. Having a right simply means no one can have a right to stop you.

Did you have the right to earn money last year? You still do.

Did you have the right to run your business last year? You have the same right today. And, no, this right doesn’t depend on a business license, either.

Did you have the right to gather with friends and family to celebrate Thanksgiving last year? You still have the right to do so.

Nothing a politician says can ever change any of this.

While politicians have the power to violate your rights, they don’t have the power to alter your rights with legislation or mandates. Not even a little.

Your rights remain exactly the same no matter what politicians claim.

Rights can either be respected or violated. There’s no third option. To regulate, limit, ration, license, or criminalize a right is to violate it. The person who violates a right for any reason is the bad guy, without exception, no matter what excuse they use. Nothing justifies violating human rights.

The freedom to exercise your rights is liberty. No one has the right to violate anyone’s liberty. This right doesn’t exist and can’t be created.

Liberty is not whatever politicians say it is or wish you would believe. Liberty is simply freedom tempered with responsibility. Politicians don’t even get the option of defining your responsibility.

It’s your life; your rights; your liberty. Take it back. Say “Enough” and mean it.

Some people will be angry with me because they imagine I minimize the opinions of experts. I can’t stop you from listening to supposed experts, nor from believing them. Listen to them all you want. They still have no right to impose their opinions on you with threats of government violence. If you help them violate the natural rights of your friends and neighbors, you are as bad as they are.

I’ll assume you’d never do this. You care about the rights of others and will support them as they live in liberty, even when they go against politicians’ wishes

Aren’t you thankful your rights don’t depend on recognition by politicians? I certainly am.

Indeed, rights do not come from pols or the state. There are people who think that the US constitution gave Americans rights in the Bill of Rights. It is rather bizarre that someone would think that prior to the the Bill of Rights being drafted and ratified that nobody in history had the right to free speech or freedom of religion or the right to keep and bear arms. As if magically these rights came into existence in 1791.
