"Our rights do not come from God, your honor, and you know that. They come from man," Cuomo insisted.Mr. Cuomo would do well to go back to high school and sit through an American History class, because he evidently missed the part about Thomas Jefferson, who said, in part.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”Then, Mr. Jefferson laid out the proper function of government.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.I suspect that Mr. Cuomo is one of those unfortunates who is educated past his basic intelligence, one of those credentialed people who fails to understand the basic nature of man, and who substitutes book-learning for intellect.
Mr. Cuomo revealed himself to be an idiot. That's not his fault, but it is certainly the fault of CNN for continuing to employ him.
Don't bother to write in comments tht the Constitution lays out our rights. The Constitution only recognizes the rights tht were given to us by God. Jefferson understood that, and so do I.
