Silly boy, it’s not in the constitution, it is in the Declaration of Independence. (Sarcasm Alert). “We are endowed by the Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” This makes it quite clear that it is the government’s role to not only guarantee my life, liberty, and happiness, but provide me with the means to pursue and guarantee these unalienable rights. And, with the last 2 presidential elections, we (the majority) gave government the consent to take from you to provide the majority with whatever we need for our life, liberty, and happiness.
