This is what Albert Foster wrote in the Detroit News 9-27-09 and I agree with him:
A recent letter writer claimed that health care, education and a decent living are rights, not options. In truth, they are privileges that are provided by society. The level and quality of these "rights" depends on how wealthy that society is.
Therefore, we should all strive to create a society that increases wealth first before we worry about redistributing wealth. People who do not understand this should be exciled to a Third World country for at least a year. Then maybe they would get it.
