Media Rip Republican Who Won't Say Every American Is ‘Entitled To Eat.’ But He's Not Wrong. Here's Why. | Daily Wire:

Image result for Bill of Rights"So, is America worse off than South Africa despite our Constitution not mandating food as a right? Of course not. We’re significantly better off, because it turns out that using government to confiscate wealth from the very people who produce cheaper and more plentiful products ends up exacerbating scarcity. Declaring things “rights” feels good, but when those “rights” come with forced redistributionism, the things become less available.

So no, you don’t have a “right” from the government to food. You have the freedom from government to live a country where food is available in plenty, and where your fellow Americans help pick you up when you are down."
