Since the beginning of the country, there have always been those who believed the nation should stay out of the affairs of others. One famous isolationist was the great flyer, Charles Lindbergh. They generally believe that the US should exist only for the benefit of its own citizens.

What principal behind the constitution guarantees that a person's freedom cannot be taken away?

They CAN be taken, but it is the responsibility of the people to make sure that they aren't through voting and election of members of the government. Even though the constitution makes the beautiful statement that rights are God given it takes the structure of the constitution to make sure they are protected. It takes a press willing to expose corruption, people knowing the issues, people voting, petition of the government to remove laws that are against rights, and understanding history as well as how government works. Our idea about basic freedoms today is different than in 1789 when the constitution was written. Today people think they have the right to be happy, but there is nothing in the constitution or government that ensures the happiness of individuals. It is up to each of us to ensure our happiness.
