As far as I see, there is no such option for the widget as a whole, but
only for a particular tag. So in order to right-justify the contents of a
text widget you will need to do:
textwidget.tag_add('sometag', 1.0, 'end')
The problem here is that you will have to do this explicitely every time
some new text is inserted into the text widget. Even worse, you will have
to find a way to automatically keep track of the widget's contents.
I don't know if there is a way to configure the text's "default tag" so
you will only have to do this once.

After a time, you may find that "having" is not so pleasing a thing,
after all, as "wanting." It is not logical, but it is often true.
