Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness

These are among the foremost rights which each of us, as human beings, have. You have the right to live without threat of violence. You have the right to live without unreasonable constraints on the choices you make for yourself, other than the equal right of others to liberty. And you have the right to pursue those things which you believe will bring you happiness, again so long as that does not violate another’s equal right to pursue their desires.

These are not “Constitutional rights”, they are innate rights to which every person is entitled. Government does not grant rights: it can only either recognize them, or violate them.

I promise you that as your Representative, I will do everything in my power to see that the state of Utah does more recognizing and less violating.
