Some have claimed healthcare as an American's 'right'. I copied from a op-ed the other day one shining the light on this inconsistency (I forgot to copy the author's name). "(T)he government does not compel citizens to attend church in the name of religious freedom. The government does not compel citizens to own a gun in the name of the Second Amendment. And the government does not force citizens to engage in the political process in the name of free speech."
"In contrast, our radically 'progressive' friends are eager to compel every American using the heavy hand of government to exercise their so-called 'right' to healthcare. Should we celebrate the passage of a bill that in the service of non-existent rights actually diminishes our liberty?"
