    a question about rights

    Is it possible to delegate a right to some other person, or group of persons, that you don't have?

    No, which is why it is absurd to believe that a representative government might possess a power or authority that is not possessed by any of those being represented, from which the representative government supposedly derives its authority.

    Well you cannot delegate rights. You can only delegate privilege, authority, and/or power. Rights are yours by birth. So knowing this, you cannot delegate privilege, authority, and/or power which you do not already have to someone else.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    Yet Congress is delegated the power to impose taxes which power no person had. The same applies to the judicial powers which no individual had. If this is correct the premise of the thread may be invalid.
