“If the average citizen is guaranteed equal opportunity in the polling place, he must have equal opportunity in the market place.”
Please explain how the average citizen does not have equal opportunity in the market place. Please explain how you would guarantee equal opportunity in the market place and then please explain how that will effect the economy at least at the macro level.
“We have come to a clear realization of the fact that true individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence.”
How do you have both economic security and economic independence?
How do you codify a right to a “useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation” without forcing industries, shops, farms, and mines to employee Americans?
Please define what is “enough” under FDR’s 2nd right “The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreations”
How do you force farm’s to employee people and allow them to “raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living”? Please define “decent living”.
“The right of every family to a decent home” Not sure where to even begin with this one.
The rest raise the same questions. “The right to adequate medical care” okay, what does that mean? An “opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health”. What does that mean? Government gym’s? Mandatory exercise? Government approved rations?
“The right to adequate protection from economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment.” Okay, we basically have that now.
“The right to ‘good’ education” Okay, define that please.
The difference between the 1st bill of rights and the 2nd is that the first restrained government action allowing for citizens to be free while the 2nd requires government intervention in the name of security.
The second bill of rights is literally the exact opposite of independence / liberty.
