"Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence.  The phrase gives three examples of the "inalienable rights" which the Declaration says have been given to all humans by their creator.  Which of these rights do you feel is the most important?  What would happen if one of the three were removed from the Constitution?  How do these rights coincide with your Christian beliefs?
