Now...the Democrats have turned the Constitution on its head...have departed from the Constitution...by passing a LAW that forces people to, at least, buy health insurance. Health care is still not a right.
Securing the blessings of liberty is just one of several goals the constitution servesWe the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Had the majority of the people not been in favour of his promised agenda then they would have elected Romney.
Therefore, the majority of the people have the right to demand to demand Obama fulfill his promises. They have in fact said, through the political process, that they regard it as their right to have affordable health care for all.
This is as simple as understanding that your congress enacts laws that afford rights to your country's citizens. To not obey those laws would be to trample on the rights of your country's citizens. You have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Now your citizens have shown through a majority vote that they claim the right to affordable health care too. It's a simple concept really. It's above and beyond your constitution as are many rights and liberties that aren't expressly mentioned. You may someday also claim the right to equality under the law as have the people of France.
Do you propose to separate the rights of citizens that the law grants them? Do you somehow separate the ACA from other laws? If you do then your actions would be seen as treasonous.
But this "forcing" is a misnomer, it is characterizing the govt as having to conscript medical workers.
The argument of a right to medical care is not an argument for said conscription.
So...you think securing the blessings of liberty is some sort of blanket statement that'll allow the government to demand the people do anything it wants? I don't think so. I think that phrase means that the desire is to protect the people from the government...or any person...from taking away the blessings of liberty.
Do you contend that, somehow, health care is a blessing of liberty?What does 'to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity' mean?
It means to guarantee to the people of the United States at that time, and to their descendents (their posterity) all of the advantages of freedom.
The question contains a small but significant error. It's "blessings" not "blessing." The entire clause is "...to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity..."
The blessings of liberty refers to all of the benefits that are afforded by having liberty. Free speech, the right to peacably assemble, freedom of religion, the right to own property, the right to travel freely within and between states, etc. These and many others are the blessings of liberty. It goes beyond the mere implication that liberty is a blessing.
