  • We are all created equal (The basis of all justice/fairness, but unequal in talents),
  • Life (security, common defense, justice),
  • Liberty, freedom and responsibility (free choice, own the consequences),
  • Property (no theft, no confiscation),
  • Pursuit of Happiness,
  • Freedom of Expression (Religious liberty, free press),
  • Self-defense (to bear arms), and
  • Trust in government, truth.

Alienable Rights are mere retractable, legislated rights (e.g. handicapped parking, Medicare, welfare, housing…these are perishable rights).

Universal Human Obligations/Responsibilities (i.e. good citizenship) to:

  • Be self-reliant and, if able-bodied, provide for one’s family,
  • Care for the children, the elderly, and the impaired,
  • Be law-abiding, informed/educated, vote, pay taxes, do military duty
  • Care for one’s community (ethnic, religious, fraternal, school, neighborhood, employer…) as our extended family, and
  • Repress one’s envy and greed.
