No rights, only obligations


No rights, only obligations

Dear Editor   

Contrary to Bernie Sanders opinion there are no rights only obligations. The constitution states we have a right to life but that has been abrogated by the Supreme Court with abortion. There is a right to live provided by parents who bring life into the world but this only lasts until the child is able to sustain himself. There is no other right to live because living requires some form of effort either self or some outside effort. Our civilization places obligations on some people to provide for some who cannot provide for themselves but these are not required. Every claimed right requires an equal effort. That can be called involuntary servitude or better known as slavery. We outlawed that 150 years ago. How many of those claiming a right would walk up to a stranger and demand a payment for their health care or tuition? It is very easy to claim these rights without elaborating who has to pay for them. It is naturally implied that wealthy business owners will pay the bills.
