Government Giveth, Government Taketh Away

Silverfiddle Rant!

“A government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take it all away”
- President Gerald Ford

I have problems with language like this…

“Yet, even as the court continued to forge new ground in creating a private sphere where Americans could do as they pleased in their family life without undue government interference…”

I don’t blame the writer. She is simply echoing the mindset of government and judges that has prevailed for over a century: That government must carve out spaces and create new rights for us. That mindset contradicts the US Constitution and the philosophy behind it, which hold that these rights and spaces flow from natural law, preexist any written document, and may not be infringed by government.   
This unconstitutional mindset can be summed up as…
Rights come from government, so a person must seek permission from government to do something.  If challenged, that permission must be found in the constitution.
That’s ass backwards. The Constitution constitutes the government, telling it what it can and cannot do. Our individual rights are unenumerated and many and do not flow from that document. 
A Constitutional Mindset…
The question is not whether a black man may marry a white woman, or whether someone has a right to contraception.  This starts a game of “where can we find that right in the constitution?”  
Rather, the question should be, where in the constitution does it allow a government to infringe upon such a fundamental right?
What say you?
