In England: During information-gathering conversations, "right" is an unconsciously uttered filler word that precedes the response to a question. The duration of the utterance is directly related to the assuredness of the response that follows. Short utterances indicate that respondents are confident of their answers. Drawn-out utterances denote that respondents have less confidence in their answers. When the pronunciation is drawn-out excessively, respondents are signaling that they do not know the correct answer, yet feel obliged to respond anyway.
"How many eggs should I use in this quiche?"

"Right. Three eggs ought to be enough."

"What is the most direct route to Scarborough Fair?"

"Ri-i-i-ght. I believe you follow this road to a roundabout, and go west."

"Is the library open on Sunday?"

"Ri-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-ight. I do remember a time when the library was open seven days a week."

Guaranteed to all Americans by the constitution, but slowly being taken away through social aid programs, censorship, and bannings.
Bill: I don't smoke, but i do believe that it is the right of an adult citizen of this country to smoke if they so choose, and that it is the right of any privately owned company to choose if they will allow a person to do so.
Ted: Yeah, and why should a privately owned company not be allowed to hire or fire anyone for any reason they want.
Bill: And what about trying to censor the internet, or the censorship of radio, tv, and print. Why is it not the choice of the company what they allow on their networks?
Ted: Indeed, and let's not get started on the patriot act.

A public relations scheme concocted by government officials to trick the public into giving the government power over their lives. These are discarded and ignored the second they become inconvenient to the government institution.
To convince the colonies to ratify the constitution, they added a Bill of Rights. At the earliest convenience, these rights were immediately trampled on, discarded, and ignored. The Bill of Rights exists today as a set of things to have students memorize in civics class, but not entirely understand, and for lawyers to use to make arguments that are then ignored by judges. Any other applications of rights, such as deterring Draconian legislation, are nonexistent.
