No, it does NOT. Rights are INHERENT, endowed by the Creator. Government is not a power that has capability to confer rights on humanity. Perhaps you need to re-read this document and the Declaration of our founding...for clarity.
Rights that are inalienable are not the government's to grant. If they were, they could just as easily be revoked by the same government.
If you can direct me to language in the Constitution or the Declaration that references the government granting rights, I will appreciate the education.

I agree with you 100% Mace. I think you want the other guy to point that out to you.
