Difference between negative and positive rights. According to Saint Clara University, “Positive rights, therefore, are rights that provide something that people need to secure their well being, such as a right to an education, the right to food, the right to medical care, the right to housing, or the right to a job.“ Negative rights don’t require anyone to help you. 

Is there a right of free speech? Yes. If someone said that the president is dumb, why would you arrest him/her. There’s most likely people saying things much worse. If this were the case then everyone would be arrested. The government  knows everything that we say. They spy on us through our electronics! Many people violate the right of free speech and that’s wrong.
