The Meaning of Inalienable

• by Jeffrey Wernic

What does yield mean? It means to relinquish possession of. I guess for Biden, the difference between America and other countries is that we are born with inalienable rights but at birth we yield these inalienable rights to the government. I guess he believes that in other countries people are not born with inalienable rights so never enjoyed that brief moment at birth when we possess for a fleeting moment our inalienable rights before yielding them.

I wonder how I yielded my inalienable rights? Did my parents yield them when signing my birth certificate? Did I yield them voluntarily? Did I consent to yielding them? Were they not really yielded but taken by force? I personally do not recall yielding my rights.

Or does this represent his construction of the Constitution and the Bill Of Rights.

James Madison, the main author of the Constitution informed us that we have rights in our property and property in our rights. That we own our rights. That we own our property.

Jefferson in correspondence wrote: "Nothing… is unchangeable but the inherent and unalienable rights of man." Further: "Of liberty I would say that, in the whole plenitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual."

Some rights can't be yielded. But if there are those that can, file a revocation of signature off all documents, regarding those (or all) rights with your local and state government recording offices. Also, post an ad in your local or state business newspaper for two months. Keep copies, and use them with anybody who attempts to take your rights. If they won't stop and return your property, invoice them. When they don't pay, take them to court. Have about 30 buddies of yours file into the courtroom with you, just to observe. If anybody - the judge - breaks the law, get a number of these guys to form a Constitutional Grand Jury, and indict the judge. It will take having some buddies who know the law a little, but it will be worth it in the long run.
