The Constitution for the United States of America

Bill of Rights
Article 9

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

We the People are making sure that we retain the right to exercise any and all of our unalienable rights. Our enumeration of right in the Constitution, does not ban us from continuing to use those same rights and powers. We, the People, always retain their right to the use our rights for our own benefit.

If this were not true we would not have the inherent right to amend or abolish our government and start over.

that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. - Declaration of Independence
