Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government
THE second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.
Nobody has a right to a job. The flip side of that question would be "Does anyone who doesn't want to work have a right to be supported by the government?" Aka, unconditional welfare to all who want it, no questions asked. (Yes, I know some feel we already have that, but trust me, we don't! Yet. )
In a perfect world, everyone who wants a job, needs a job, and is capable of performing a job would have a job. This is not a perfect world. America is based on equal opportunity for all, and in a perfect world that would be true. Again, not everyone will have the same opportunities, and life will be more difficult for some than others. People do have the opportunity to pursue education and training, so that they are qualified for jobs that become available. Alas, there are no guarantees in life that there will always be enough jobs for those who want them, or enough qualified applicates for employers who need them.
Where people do have the "right" to a job, I guaran-damn-tee that they are living under a government that tells them what job they will have whether they like it or not, and does not afford the opportunity to pursue any other options. That's certainly not what I want, and I doubt many others want that either.
