It’s Liberty Toastmaster’s Day. Today’s topic is: Rights that are endowed by our creator, not derived from governments. Dave Walden joins Kim in the studio. The following answers were shared by participating Liberty Toastmaster members:
Rick Rome: Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness serve as a sort of holy trinity (like the father, the son, and the holy spirit) in American society. This trifecta being codified in our founding documents marks the first time in history that a divine right has been impressed upon a nation’s people.
Greg Morrissey: The people of America must rise up and redefine the nation’s priorities to focus on the aforementioned trifecta. If we take these rights for granted, we take the greatness of America for granted as well.
Anthony Hartsook: We need to get back to understanding clearly that our rights come from our creator and not the government.
Marshall Dawson: A desire to be free is inherent in our humanity. It’s not so much about religion (in reference to “rights endowed by our creator”) as it is a simple human impulse.
Terri Goon: Our freedom wasn’t exactly given to us by God – rather, by people who fought for our rights.
