Keeping this jurisdiction-free, the legal protections people think they
should have and the legal protections they think they have and the legal
protections they actually have are three quite disjoint subject areas.
It pays to keep this in mind when making statements.

process of reasoning is stymied.

My objection is not to your political beliefs or your ideas about what
rights are possessed by Americans.  My objection is strictly one of clarity.
