Rights are defined in most legal dictionaries as entitlements.
Privileges or licenses are granted from a legal authority such a law or statute made by a state legislature, or by the Congress or the President.
With Obama's coming out about his flip-flop on gay marriage, leftists are once again demanding their RIGHTS, as they see them.
Whether you believe you were created from a pile of goo, or by GOD when you were born, you came into the world butt naked, with NOTHING.
Your parents or legal guardians fed you, clothed you, and gave you shelter. If you were one of the lucky ones, they also gave you love, support, and protected you.
Our Founding Fathers gave us the following LAWS, which are PRIVILEGES to name a few, and they CANNOT be taken from any American:
- Freedom of Speech
- Freedom of Religion
- Right to Bear Arms
Marriage is not a right, it is a privilege.
Abortion is not a right, and as despicable as this sounds to most normal people, getting an abortion is a privilege granted to women who don't want the responsibilty of taking care of another human being, or were too uneducated to protect themselves from becoming pregnant.
Leftists will demand their RIGHTS, they will demand HUMAN RIGHTS, and at the same time demand the privilege to snuff out the life of a baby growing inside a woman's womb.
They also will never understand that RIGHTS come with responsibilities. The progressives have fed them garbage for the last 100 years and made them believe that everything they demand in this world is their RIGHT.
It is not. We are privileged to have been born in America, a country whose Constiution is the only one that has lasted.
If you don't think you have enough entitlements here, perhaps you should live elsewhere. My guess is you won't stay too long and will be crawling back here.
With the current "Everything is a Right" administration now running the country, I also believe that if they stay in power for four more years, we won't have the country we had when you left.
Please understand the difference between your rights and privileges afforded to you.
