    So you don't believe you have any right to them, and hence would be owed them, but you still fight to take them from other people? Don't you have any standards for yourself?

    BUT does the world owe you anything just because you are here?

    I have rights defined by the constitution and the bill of rights because I was lucky enough to have been born in America but the world owes me nothing.

    The world doesn't owe me anything, and I don't owe the world anything. I was raised as you were, sawyer. I was told that we are all born with the same opportunity, but where we go in life is up to us.

    No, and I voted no.

    Re: Does the world owe you anything

    The only thing I could think of that the world MIGHT owe me for being born is air. Maybe water too. But it's up to me to breathe and carry my own water. And even then, I'm not sure that "owe," is the right word.

    So you're saying "the world" doesn't owe you anything but the part of the world that you live in does?

    Seems convenient, since you'll never ask "the world" as a whole for anything anyway since that's pretty much impossible for someone to do but you'll ask a lot of the part of the world you're in.

My feeling is that if you want health care then get a job and buy insurance while others think you deserve health care just because. I don't get it.
    The World does not owe you anything...but isn't awesome that the community in which you chose to live has helped you attain utilities, fire and police protection, public education, and medical services. God love the USA.

    You were told wrong.
