Left-leaning politicians focus on creating an all-powerful central government and eliminating unalienable rights that preexist our Constitution. Even the U.S. Supreme Court agrees those rights do not depend upon mere words on paper for their legitimacy.

At the same time, those same politicians demand that government be allowed to track every move, transaction and utterance that citizens make — practices possible only in an oppressive, totalitarian state.

Isaac Asimov coined the “Three Laws of Robotics.” The first two can be paraphrased as — one: government may not injure a citizen or, through inaction, allow a citizen to come to harm, and two: government must obey the orders given to it by citizens, except where such orders would conflict with the first law.

Isn’t that the intent of the Bill of Rights which requires government to protect our unalienable rights both enumerated and unenumerated?

Who will protect citizens from a government armed with the latest robotic technology running amuck and destroying its creators?
