The bill of rights (amendments 1-10) in the Constitution establishes our unalienable/inalienable inherent rights as flesh and blood persons – which cannot be given to any entity such as a corporation or union because of this very reason – these rights are inhernet/inalienable. In absolute structure of power, these entities are not sovereign over us; we the people as the government are sovereign over these legal fictions of concentrated power. For example, these entities do not ‘yet’ have the illegal personhood right to vote, yet the 2010 Citizens United ruling perverted the Constitution by ‘giving’ the personhood right of free speech to entities to speak with money, which these monies cannot be regulated by our legislature as it is now considered an impingement on their ‘free speech’ right (and in the case of trade associations, this right of personhood extends even to foreign members/directors ‘the right of voice’ of unlimited and undisclosed money to buy TV ads advocating a candidate, e.g.,”vote for Joe”) — an outright buying of our elections by those with the most money including foreign.
The Declaration of Independence tells us the true purpose of the government:
“That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just power from the consent of the governed…” In short OUR rights that are inherent to us as individuals as outlined in the bill of rights has been usurped by SCOTUS by ‘giving’ them to entities. Something that is inalienable is inherent cannot be given — the Supreme Court has no precedent to do this in all law that has existed since our country’s foundation – our founders never intended such a perversion nor would stand for such now.
What is SOVEREIGNTY? Political sovereignty is the assertion of the self-determinate will of the organic people, and in this there is the manifestation of its freedom. It is in and through the determination of its sovereignty that the order of the nation is constituted and maintained.” Mulford, Nation, p. 129
The Constitution is the supreme law of the land wherein declares the sovereignty of power resides in the people who ordained and established it. [AFA]

Law Dictionary: Constitution of The United States of America
What is most important here is the term “right,” connoting legitimacy. A holder of sovereignty derives authority from some mutually acknowledged source of legitimacy — natural law, a divine mandate, hereditary law, a constitution, even international law. In the contemporary era, some body of law is ubiquitously the source of sovereignty. http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/sovereignty/#1
SOVEREIGNTY. The union and exercise of all human power possessed in a state; it is a combination of all power; it is the power to do everything in a state without accountability; to make laws, to execute and to apply them: to impose and collect taxes, and, levy, contributions; to make war or peace; to form treaties of alliance or of commerce with foreign nations, and the like. Story on the Const. §207.
2. Abstractedly, sovereignty resides in the body of the nation and belongs to the people. But these powers are generally exercised by delegation.
3. When analysed, sovereignty is naturally divided into three great powers; namely, the legislative, the executive, and the judiciary; the first is the power to make new laws, and to correct and repeal the old; the second is the power to execute the laws both at home and abroad; and the last is the power to apply the laws to particular facts; to judge the disputes which arise among the citizens, and to punish crimes.
4. Strictly speaking, in our republican forms of government, the absolute sovereignty of the nation is in the people of the nation; (q. v.) and the residuary sovereignty of each state, not granted to any of its public functionaries, is in the people of the state.
