    If you believe that we are all born with inherent rights...how can you not believe that those rights should not only be protected, but preserved and shared by everyone?

    I Hate How People Treat You Like You're Non-human!

    I have STRONG feelings for human rights, & I fight very hard for MY human rights! People try to treat you as if dog doo-doo is worth more than you, & that you don't have the right to live. Well, people treat me like that.

    Human Rights

    Have you noticed how many countries there are without rights?  As a libertarian, I believe everyone should be free and equal.  I do like to bring awareness to these things, and one day I hope to make a difference.

    It Is A Moral Imperative That Every Human Being Has Inalienable Rights.........

    ..........and that these rights are protected by everyone else. In the defense of that person who is having their Rights infringed lies the freedom and dignity of everyone else. I sincerely wish people would get this in their heads! :)
