TCN Program Topic Excerpt

Note: To the best of my knowledge, this is the one and only freely published list of synonyms for the word rights in the Constitution. Also, the TCN program is the only program that I know of that allows a user to compile such lists.

The following report is excerpted from the TCN program.

Download the TCN program to see what else is there.

The use in the Constitution of the word "Rights" is what inspired the list of words in the "Key Words" box on this screen, not to mention the entire TCN program.

Not so much so you could have THIS specific list of cross references and key words associated with "Rights", but also and even more so in order that you could add or delete from this list as you see fit - and so you could make similar lists of key words and cross references related to any area of Constitutional interpretation that is of interest to you.

It's funny how "life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness" in the Declaration of Independence became "life, liberty, and property" in the Constitution - not just in one place, but in two places.

Another echo of the Declaration that can be heard in the Constitution is found in the 9th Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Compare "certain unalienable rights" in the Declaration to "rights . . . retained by the people" in the Constitution.
