The idea that Kenny is expressing here is one of the key philosophical differences between American progressives and conservatives. It challenges the fundamental philosophical underpinning of the Bill of Rights. Once we lose that - mark my words - we have nothing left.

It's one thing to debate on a whole variety of issues facing the country. But once we start to dilute the Bill of Rights with the notion that those rights are granted by the government rather than God-given and thus unalienable, we are done. Really done.
