    There was even a song written about your right to party. It is a "rite of passage" into adulthood. It should have been added to the poll.

    The more my government attempts to protect me, the fewer rights I actually have. The more they attempt to fix my problems, the less upward mobility I enjoy.

    Getting into a mainly semantics argument here.

    There are many types of rights depending on the game/situation you are in.
    The right to be free from unreasonable government search is provided by our Cotus:
    The "Right" to take first base after 4 balls is written in baseball rules:
    The "Right" to defend yourself is a state of mind and is guaranteed by your ability to do so.
