    All of these above, because all these things have the potential to be provided or earned by anyone and everyone.

    Pardon my hippie mind, why are people saying that they aren't rights?

    Just trying to understand both sides here.

    Society has rules. Inate rights are defined by those rules. How we choose to respond to those rules is our 'right' becasue it is the only thing we can truly control.

    I voted all of them just to skew the data and piss off the really hard-line Ayn Rand style libertarians

    Its a realistic position. Where is the universal code written that defines 'rights'? Why arent those same rights we enjoy the same rights Hatians enjoy? Why dont Cubans or North Koreans enjoy those same rights?

    The concept of 'rights' is a feel good concept. It is as inane as the word 'fair'.

    These rights are endowed by society as a matter of responsibility.

    You're already operating under the assumption that some people will have to pay more 'expense' than others for these rights to be attainable?

    Or equality. true.

    They are WONDERFUL words...and great concepts. But shall we all embrace God for giving us those rights? Yahweh? JoJo the Rabbit?

    Its an idea...and in OUR country they are ideals we value and work to achieve them. But unfortunately too many believe the way to achieve it is to reduce everyone else to mediocrity.

    Which society? Do these rights ONLY exist in America?

    Its not an assumption. Its a reality. Crippled and dependent pets need caretakers.
