Driving a car and obtaining a valid driver 's license is something every teenager longs for. Their parents are the ones who decide whether or not they are responsible enough to own one because owning a driver 's license is a privilege, not a right. Unfortunately, illegal immigrants feel that obtaining a driver 's license should be their right for working in the United States illegally and that each member of their family should own a car as well. There are already 8.7 to 12 million illegal immigrants living in the United States and more keep arriving each year (Tanton par. 8). Many problems will develop if this idea is legalized: cities will become over-crowded, more accidents will be seen on the roads and freeways, violence will become more frequent in our neighborhoods, they would be able to vote in popular and important elections, and terrorists will have easier access to America 's airlines and personal information. Illegal immigrants should not have a valid driver 's license in any state. They are illegal in this country and should only deserve one if they take the time to become a legal U.S. citizen. If this idea of illegal immigrants obtaining driver 's licenses comes into effect, there will be more illegal aliens coming into the United States then ever before. The vast majority of the population will contain a much lower income due to the over-crowding of cities. The unemployment rate will skyrocket because the number of people trying to get jobs will out number the amount of job opportunities. Not only will cities become over-crowded, but the roads and freeways as well. The more illegal immigrants driving on roads and freeways, the more accidents America will be seeing. The majority of illegal immigrants probably cannot read or speak any English. If they cannot read the country they are living in illegally 's language, then how are they going to know where to turn or what direction they are going? How would they know the correct speed limit?

“Should people under 18 be subjected to legal curfews or restricted driving privileges?”
Most teenagers consider their driver’s license as their ticket to independence. With a driver’s license, minors are able to drive themselves around whether it’d be to school, work, or other activities. A driver’s license for a minor could also mean, tragic car accidents, night out at drinking parties with friends, vandalism, drug use, gang violence, and trespassing. The question we ask ourselves is, whether….

Privileges vs. Rights
Throughout history, people have always wanted what they can't have. Since the 1970's, this is the attitude most Americans have taken with respect to underage drinking. It was at this time that many states changed the legal drinking age from 18 to 21. The theory behind this was, if you rise the drinking age, people will drink more responsibly, because with age comes responsibility. Unfortunately, the people who made….
Healthcare: Privilege or Right?
Many people consider healthcare to be a privilege while others consider it to be a right. This has been an argument for more than one hundred years. It has become such a big debate in the US that a politician’s position on the topic could be the deciding factor of putting him in the White House or not for most of the voters. People can give convincing facts about whether healthcare is a right or a wrong but it can be summed up to more of a privilege than a right after….
Is the education a right or a privilege? In my opinion, education should be a right. Everyone needs to be educated. Education is needed for all kids. Kids need to stay away from bad things. They need to learn something so that they can have a future. I believe that everyone has the right to education. Everyone needs to be able to get into college or to get a job. People need to learn how to read. Reading is important for when people have to read directions or fill out an application. They….

Learning is a Privilege, Not a Right
Nationalized tests are tests that students are forced to take at the end of every school year for the classes that are required to be passed in order to graduate high school. Failing a nationalized test will result in a student having to either take the same class the next year, or the student being held back and having to repeat the grade. Because these tests are such a huge deal, the….

Healthcare: A Right or Privilege
As I have pondered the ever hammering question of our society today, is healthcare a right or a privilege, I find that I am conflicted in making a decision to support either right or privilege.
To arrive at an understanding, I needed to define the basic terms of “right” and “privilege”. An individual’s right, as defined by our constitution….
The controversy over healthcare on whether it is a right or privilege has really been making me think about what I believe and what it is to be a citizen of the United States. The healthcare system in the United States has long been a debatable issue, especially when it is discussed by supporters of publicly funded healthcare. Unlike in many developed industrialized countries (including Canada, Australia, United Kingdom), the United States healthcare system is less socialistic, and thus a subject….
