Have you ever considered what "unalienable rights" guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution really means to you?   Here is the definition:

What's unalienable cannot be taken away or denied.  Its most famous use is in the Declaration of Independence, which says people have unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.


Your rights are CERTAIN and cannot be taken away, transferred to another, or even abandoned by yourself.



The first ten Amendments to the Constitution list the Rights that are endowed to each individual by their creator.  These rights are exclusive to each person and are not issued by government, but are defended and protected by the governments we elect by democratic vote.  This document is a "one of a kind" in human history that values individual rights over government regimes.  This is one reason millions of immigrants have flocked to America.   America enjoys the wide diversity of cultures that have made America a beacon of hope and prosperity for its citizens.



Each of the 50 States have their own "State Constitution" which defines and frames the guidelines of their government operations.  If I am elected I promise to uphold the Tennessee State Constitution.
