    You were free. Now with Obamadon'tcare, it's impossible.
    Well if you're going to go down that particular road then you arguably still have the choice of not making enough money to pay the mandate. You can just stop working and receive free health insurance.

    How so?
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Heck no. It's a line of people that had little chance of taking care of themselves thanks to FDR's government programs.

    Do we know communism, in the real world and outside of just theory, to be anything but slavery?

    In which case you will still fall under the requirements of Obamadon'tcare. You have to toe their line regardless.

    The trolling and the ignorance are indistinguishable now.

    Just like the rest of the perks enjoyed in modern society. You don't technically have to work to enjoy the benefits of living in a technologically and culturally advanced (historically speaking) society, such as well maintained roads, schools, clean drinking water, sanitation, medicine, etc. It's not the way I'd choose to live, personally, but the choice is there.

    Yeah, I saw that. Like I said, a mere extension of the ridiculous hyperbole contained in the title.

    Well, seeing as you have little, if any, proven credibility [ what are your credentials to be considered so?] as qualified or one considered to be expert/knowledgeable in such...let me guess, we are just supposed to just take your word for it, eh?

    Not much of a debating technique... would you possibly deign to prove something wrong, or illogical or something besides just saying its wrong...I mean, only if you want to be taken seriously.

    People pushing for a redistribution of wealth, government programs and so on, would disagree strongly with you. They would think the word "technically" has to go. They think they have a right to something for nothing. Like many of the advocates of Obamadon'tcare.
