This column has it exactly backwards. Nobody owes us anything. See Harry Browne's essay: http://harrybrowne.org/articles/GiftDaughter.htm

    "The shallow consider liberty a release from all law, from every constraint. The wise see in it, on the contrary, the potent Law of Laws." ~ Walt Whitman

And just what is this "potent Law of Laws"? The answer, as we have posted here twice before is...

    "The law of nature is superior in obligation to any other. It is binding in all countries and at all times. No human laws are valid if opposed to this, and all which are binding derive their authority either directly or indirectly from it. ~ Institutes of American Law by John Bouvier, 1851, Part I, Title II, No. 9
