Motion To Dismiss : Oregon

Motion To Dismiss : Oregon
I am confused on a point of jurisdiction... the Oregon constitution states the following in Article one Section one:

Section 1. Natural rights inherent in people. We declare that all men, when they form a social compact are equal in right: that all power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their peace, safety, and happiness; and they have at all times a right to alter, reform, or abolish the government in such manner as they may think proper. —

Oregon Constitution

Does instituted for their peace, safety and happiness translate into individual rights in this context? I would think that it does but I'm just not sure that it's explicit in that context.

DONE!  I'm OUTTA here, Jack!

This must have been written when Oregon was a part of Africa as I can sense a large amount of HIPPO in the cracy.

Re: Motion To Dismiss : Oregon
No where in the Oregon constitution can I find the "to protect or maintain individual rights" or similar terminology.

I would assume that the foundation for standing would be Article I Section I of said constitution, irrespective of any of the actual terms used, since that would be the so called governments' stated purpose.

That's funny NE, I was just about to post the following as well:

I also find it awesome that the article one section one of the Oregon constitution states that only men whom form a social compact together are equal in right. LOL

Re: Motion To Dismiss : Oregon
I understand NonE,

That's a common mistake... though irregardless "is" a so called "word".

It's common usage I believe was pre-nineteen thirties or so.

I believe it was considered a nonstandard usage of the word regardless, yet still considered a "word".
