    What are your rights?

    I am wondering what everyone believes they are entitled to. We all have some familiarity with the Bill of Rights, so I'll leave that stuff out... but what other rights do we have?

    *edit* I should have added health care. My bad.

    HC is a right paid for in every industrialized nation on earth.....except the U.S.

    I saw no rights listed but first we have to decide what a "Right" is?


    Edit: In football the winner of a flip of the coin decides which team has the right to either receive or kick off.
    See what I mean?

    Rights provide nothing more than the minimum standard of treatment that a society considers allowable toward a fellow human being.

    Privileges are where it's at.

    So are HC providers slaves, obligated to serve? Or should they expect to be paid, in which case who loses the right to keep the money they earned to pay the HC providers so you can enjoy the "right" to someone else's labor? "Right"? Perhaps that word doesn't mean what you think it means...
