    You ONLY have the 'right' but because we have a constitution that guarantees it. You DONT have that same right in other countries.

I don't actually know much about the US welfare system, but last I checked we have an economy that cannot account for all people despite their better efforts. Maybe your one of those people of the contention that people who don't make it are lazy? Are you really of the opinion that it is morally wrong to have those programs? Is that why you are upset?

    And don't rich people have a huge amount of money and assistance thrown at them through all sorts of technicalities in their business endeavors? Why don't those potential taxes go back to me? Why should I pay for a business mans lunch while hes on a business trip? Like he wasnt going to eat lunch anyways?

    I said that he had the right, because after what I know he is an US citizen.

    I don't have that right, because I'm not an American.

    A well regulated health care system, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to access free medical insurance shall not be infringed.

    The only right you have is the right to fight for your rights.


    THE GREATEST FREEDOM IS THE FREEDOM TO OPPRESS OTHERS
