    So you concede that X, Y and Z are perhaps not "rights" after all, and that's fine with you as long as we write laws that entitle people to X, Y and Z anyway?

    What I am fine with, is that under our Constitution, it is the Supreme Court that was specified as the body that decides what is Constitutional and what is not, just as they have with SS, Medicare, and the conservative's insurance mandate.

    It remains the rule of law, even though I personally do not agree with it.

    So you would not support mandatory Universal healthcare in the United States since the supreme court has ruled the government can't force citizens into commerce according to our Constitution?

    Yes, we haven't accomidated those whose beliefs instruct them not to use 'health care', but trust in God to do the right thing. (They wouldn't go running to the hospital at the last minute would they?)

    Until healthcare becomes affordable, it should be an option.

    I assume you are in a flippant way saying that everyone needs healthcare. Even so, we can be forced into it.
