    If you have a right to something, it follows necessarily that you don't have to pay for it.

    Theres one that says right to a job.
    Why would anyone have a right to a job? Are you saying that employers must hire someone?

    Funny guns are a right in this country... does that mean they are free?

    Since you're putting words in my mouth and finding implications I never implied, I guess I'll say unemployment doesn't matter to you then. Why is it an issue?

    Like you're not opposed to all the above because you're a market fundamentalist?

    No, you have the right to bear arms, you do not have the right to have a gun.

    We don't have a right to guns, we have a right to keep and bear arms. Please tell me you understand the difference...

    Since you're putting words in my mouth and finding implications I never implied, I guess I'll say unemployment doesn't matter to you then. Why is it an issue?
    If someone has a right to a job, then that means firing someone would be a violation of their rights. What don't you understand about that?

    Like you're not opposed to all the above because you're a market fundamentalist?
    Huh?

    In the constitution they say that you have the right to bear and keep arms. If people say that they have a right to have a gun, they are only talking about the right to bear and keep arms.

    However, when people talk about the right to food, then that means that they should recieve food no matter what.

    Is there a difference? They have a right... to a gun if they want one. Yet they have to purchase it. Hence their right to arms.

    However, when people talk about the right to food, then that means that they should recieve food no matter what.
    What has made you think that 'the right to food' constitutes a right to free food? Sounds like an assumption to me

    Lets apply the concept in an inverse manner... can we withhold people from having food?

    Re: I have a "right" to...

    I believe in free food, water and healthcare FOR THE NEEDY. Otherwise you pay for it.

    The trick is how do you convert the needy to paying citizens?

    1. Good job market with growing businesses.
    2. Substance abuse programs.
    3. Life skills counselling.
    4. Education for the needy.
    5. Training for the needy.


    Who pays for it all (food, water, healthcare, substance abuse programs, life skills counselling, education, training)?

    The community where it is happening. We take care of our own.

    Wait.... so they are just handing things out to people? Why havent I gotten anything? What are you talking about? If I am wrong, here inform me lol. So you think theres a conspiracy on their part to redistribute americas wealth?

    Wait so now they are trying to break people to make them dependent? So their like skeletor-stalin who takes everyones money away with the goal of making them government dependent? Like CASTRO

    Apparently I need to hear about this.
    So...I'll put YOU down for deliberate also...The list is growing...

    I'd respond with the known social programs that you betcha just give away stuff...like Medicare, medicaid, housing assistance programs, food stamps, etc...but of course you KNOW about them already and are just being deliberately obtuse.
