Here’s a quote from Paul Ryan:
“Our rights come from nature and God, not from government. That’s who we are. That’s how we built this country. That’s who we are. That’s what made us great. That’s our founding. We promise equal opportunity, not equal outcomes.”
I will not dispute equal opportunity, nor will I deny inequal outcomes: But I will NOT accept that our rights come “from nature and God”. American civil rights come from and ONLY from the United States Constitution. To claim otherwise is willful ignorance.
