    You gotta be kidding. Where does it say in the Constitution that you or anyone has a right to free food and free housing, or to subsidized food and housing? What you and the minority fella are getting confused with here is that you and or anyone else do have the same rights to an 'equal opportunity' to achieve those goodies--not that you have a right to hold someone up at gunpoint or to make policy to redistribute other peoples money via the govt to get them. You and the minority fella are subsidizing straight out socialism here, and I'll have no part of that here in America the beautiful.

    You are mistaken. No civil right our laws recognize is denied a person based on their private resources.
    Henry George's theories were based on land ownership and how far a business was from a public resource like a mill or waterway. The man lived and died a decade before the model T was produced much less modern transportation and communication. Not only did Henry George never hear of the Internet, he barely lived long enough to see the electric light. Applying the theories of Henry George to modern nations is about as risky as letting the most brilliant caveman design your next airport.
