You have a right to your liberty, and you should have a right to keep the fruits of your labor....I, in a way, don't like to use those terms: gay rights, women's rights, minority rights, religious rights. There's only one type of right. It's the right to your liberty.

They were given to me and each of my fellow citizens by our creator, and they represent the essence of human dignity...
Same Rights Saying: Our human responsibility for animal rights, plant rights, and the rights of the earth to its health and wholeness is self-evident.

Same Rights Quotes: I went to my first civil rights rally when I was 17 years old. I was a little skinny blond kid, scared to death, marching against the KKK in South Georgia.
