    Sen. Rand Paul: Right To Health Care Is Like Believing In "Slavery"

    SEN. RAND PAUL (R-KY): "With regard to the idea of whether you have a right to health care, you have realize what that implies. It's not an abstraction. Iím a physician. That means you have a right to come to my house and conscript me. It means you believe in slavery."
    RealClearPolitics - Video - Sen. Rand Paul: Right To Health Care Is Like Believing In "Slavery"

    He's spot on, watch the video, he makes a great point.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Wouldn't the same logic apply to a person's right to be represented by an attorney in court?

    No. Because you have the CHOICE to have an attorney represent you, or you can choose to have a court appointed one.

    And how is this different? I'm not aware of ANY universal health care system in which the government "comes to the house" of doctors and "conscripts" them. Even under some of the most heavily-regulated European systems, the government doesn't force anyone to become a doctor in the first place, and they can quit anytime they want.

    Comparing universal health care to slavery is ****ing retarded.
