Do we have the right to goods and services provided by others?


If we have the right to a good education, food, shelter and healthcare then doesn't it follow that we should be able to demand these goods and services by any force necessary, including demands made at gunpoint?

    Exactly, the rights afforded in The Constitution were mainly the right to be left alone by the government. The rights of Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness not the rights to the goods and services of their fellow man.

    You are quite correct, we don't have the rights to what belongs to others but we have many in Washington who believe that its alright to have the government confiscate the goods of one citizen to give to another and to do this on a large scale.

    I agree, good answer. Thief's commonly believe that someone else owes them, so they take it upon themselves to decide how much. Empowering the government to redistribute another's goods or services isn't much different.
