is an entire legal movement that is referring to the Constitution as a
charter of negative rights. To them,
negative rights are that the government can't do enough.
because the government is limited. Why change the name? Why doesn't
Obama say the Bill of Rights is too limiting? We have to open up the
Bill of Rights because people don't want the Bill of Rights messed
with. But if you call the Constitution a charter of negative rights
and you have your buddy Bill Ayers working up a curricula for high
schools and colleges where kids are being taught that the Constitution
is a charter of negative rights, they're going to make the assumption
the Constitution is oppressive, that the Constitution limits them.
Obama wants to do is an Anti-Bill of Rights. That's what he wants.
When he says, there's nothing in there, the state or federal
government, what they can do to you, there's nothing in the
Constitution what they can do to you. Well, he says what's in there is
what they can't do to you, but there's nothing in there about what they
can do on your behalf. So to him the Constitution is very limiting.
He wants an Anti-Bill of Rights.
The things Obama wants to
introduce, he wants to take from individual rights. Killing babies
would be an Anti-Bill of Rights idea. The Fairness Doctrine takes away
free speech. It is an Anti-Bill of Rights item. Why name something
fair that's anti-free speech? You take away an individual's right to
bear arms, is Anti-Bill of Rights, but to Obama that's a positive
right, a positive right granted to the government. He wants the
government to have sole power via the courts or however he can bring
about to limit your freedom, whereas the Constitution's purpose is to
limit government's freedom. A government entity looking at an
individual's private information is Anti-Bill of Rights. A charter of
negative rights is demeaning and a deliberate attempt to destroy the
Bill of Rights. That's what Obama wants. That's how he plans to get
around his redistribution scheme, or plans to implement it.
Our Position on Freedom
you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve
your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I
shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it."
All across the Western world we see threats to our traditional,
hard-won freedoms—especially freedom of speech. Whether on college
campuses with political correctness or thanks to the vast spying
efforts of the US government, our freedoms are being undermined. We
call for a return to the vision of the Founding Fathers: a vision that
values the rights of people to dissent. We also value the original Bill
of Rights, including man’s inalienable rights to keep and bear arms and
to be secure in his home and possessions.
