    Exactly. So quit bitching about Americans who support the Constitution and the powers it gives to the peoples government. You are NOT objecting about a particular piece of legislation. You are objecting to the power given to the government in the Bill of Rights.

    Then the demand might be there for a physician who will cater to them. So many "what ifs" here.

    There isn't a govt mandate that physicians practice where the govt (or you) wants them to.

    I work for a Physician provider group in So Cal. In general, the pay is higher the more inland you go-and thats to attract providers from where they want to be, typically near the beach.

    The BOR does not give the govt power, rather it tells the govt what it CANT do. Please get educated.

    Um, yes I am. In particular, I object to the legislation that makes it a crime for a person to control access to his property and to exclude those with whom he does not wish to trade.

    You are objecting to the power given to the government in the Bill of Rights.
    Nope. I am objecting to legislation that congress opted to enact, not to the bill of rights.

    We are all equals. Some are not masters and some are not slaves. None of us has the divine right to tell our fellow man who he must allow on his property or with whom he must exchange. Any legislation that does so is unjust, as it makes some people the master over others.

    What if the doctor just happened to drop dead? People would have to find another doctor.

    Society has always had to contend with those who wish to use force to set themselves up as master over their fellow man. The tragedy is that it seems every generation must fight its own tyrants and wanna be tyrants.

    It's not irrelevant to the discussion. They are both human rights.
