    As far as rights go, individuals and groups only have them to the extent that they have the power to assert and to defend them.

    If Republicans have the power to say that government should not be impinging upon the rights of employers, or of businesses generally, then we the people collectively must have the power to say that the rights of employers and the rights of businesses generally are secondary to, and not in any way equal to, the rights of the individual, and of the community as a whole. Any other approach implies or maintains that the government is subservient to a special interest.
