Natural Law, Natural Rights, and American Constitutionalism (via Mirror of Justice)

This is probably more a project inspired by Robert P. George than the Straussians, but the effect is the same, especially when you see that Lincoln is held as an exemplar of American Constitutionalism. Can natural rights be rehabilitated so that the concept is palatable to paleos and traditional conservatives? Perhaps, but it is unlikely to be done here. Show me Robert George endorsing an authentic understanding of American Federalism and maybe I'll change my mind.
