The words of the Declaration reverberate powerfully inside of me. It was the first historical document to which I gave serious study. Conclusion? It ... nails ... it.

In my opinion, any interpretation of the Ninth Amendment that fails to support the people being the ultimate repository of rights and the sole issuer of rights must be discarded. It's interesting lawyer and history buff fodder to suggest other interpretations.

But The Revolution specifically was to institute government that must receive all of its power from the consent of the governed. Revolutionary. Brash. Thoroughly non-European.

The Ninth Amendment means exactly what it says.
I can respect that.

Thanks. I can respect your opinions as well, and I believe we aren't that far apart in our love for the system of government described by our Constitution and established by our Founders and their shot heard around the world.
