The compromise was made years ago--it started in 1968, and was refined in 1994. I can live with the changes. I do believe that people can lose rights due to their actions. If they couldn't, then there is no way that criminals could ever be punished--any punishment of a criminal results in a loss of their rights--from their right to life, to right to freedom to a right to property. As long as individual due process is involved, I have no problem with taking away rights. It's esconced in the 5th and 14th amendments.
