Then you'll feel like a real moron.

That statement is equivalent to "God loves you and wants you to be happy."

What the fuck do fundies teach their kids in home school? That America is a Christian nation and dictators give people rights?
That's just not a very practical way of looking at that kind of thing.
ALERT! ALERT! WE HAVE A SECOND GRADE DROPOUT IN THE VICINITY!
SEAL OFF YOUR BRAINS, AS THE STUPIDITY IS TOXIC AND
I REPEAT, THERE IS A SECOND GRADE DROPOUT IN THE VICINITY!
It's scary how some Americans not only don't understand their rights, but are so willing to wish them away. This is Theocracy speaking
No. People have natural rights.

Dictators allow no rights.
A dictatorship is absolute rule over tha people.
The American Constitution (based on the Magna Carta and other European systems) is about freedom from absolute rule.

Actually he is moderately correct. The constitution doesn't 'grant' rights, it simply lists and recognizes our natural rights. Still, fucking moron.

I am not even citizen of U, S and A and I still know about Bill of Rights.

Yeah, and you're living under the dictatorship of the proletariat.

Actually...considering how much Bush violated the constitution...he's right..
You're missing the point. The rights the Constitution protects come from the fundamental rights of each human being. The Constitution only states that the government can't take away the rights that we already have when we were born. In a dictatorship, the citizens do not have rights, they only have privileges that the dictator decides to give them.
Then why is it that, in dictatorships of all spectrums, people tended to have LESS RIGHTS then in the democracies of their time? I mean, people in 30s Britain had more rights then those in 30s Germany. Surely that contradicts your point?
