Paul Ryan believes our rights come from god(s)! Did the right for women to vote come from god(s)? did the right for blacks to marry whites come from god(s)? Did the rights gained in the 60's for the bigoted treatment of blacks in this country come from god(s)? Does the pandering B.S. coming out of Paul Ryans mouth come from god(s)?

Locke's second treatise on government?

You're still effectively saying that rights are conferred by other people. To say the rights are inherent to their personhood only begs the question of who decrees what a person is (legally and philosophically it's very important as denying the personhood of individuals or groups is a way of denying rights). With much law decreeing that abstract entities like corporations have the qualities of persons then the question is even murkier.

I disagree mikenbondi. Blacks always had rights as individuals inherent to their personhood. Sadly, at one point, other people simply violated or denied them.

Of course rights come from the sort of community consensus that government represents. Try saying otherwise to blacks in America only a few decades ago. Try explaining that to any of the countries that the US has intervened in militarily.

As an atheist I have to laugh at his primitive fairy tales based belef in a fictional "god".Of the thousands of fictional gods that man has worshipped,which god is he referencing?! Mayan gods,Egyptian gods,Bhudda,Allah,Hare Krishna...?! Religion doesn't belong in government and of course Ryan is saying his fictional god is the truth!!
