Across The Web | Why We Must Support Human Rights | John McCain

America didn’t invent human rights. Those rights are common to all people: nations, cultures and religions cannot choose to simply opt out of them.

Human rights exist above the state and beyond history. They cannot be rescinded by one government any more than they can be granted by another. They inhabit the human heart, and from there, though they may be abridged, they can never be extinguished.

(John McCain was a prisoner of war for five and a half years in Vietnam, served in the U.S. House of Representatives from Arizona’s 1st district from 1983 to 1987, and is currently serving as a United States Senator from Arizona)
