Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
1. At this time, the Poll speaks for itself. It's not right to force someone to exercise a right, because then it's not a right it's a requirement, right?
2. I love the Firechicken display picture you've got there
That what I thought, about this "rights" business..
I voted "other"
The OP is against federally funded health care...a guess ....
The more people misbehave, the fewer rights they will have.
In this case, it is the insurance companies.
Here's where you fail:
Selective Service, created under the power to raise armies, has nothing to do with the militia.
Now, tell me how you agree that you cannot force anyone to exercise thir rights, but support mandating that people exercise their right to health care.
The idea of individual mandates is not based upon healthcare being a right, but rather being a responsibility, much like carrying car insurance. If you drive a car, you have a responsibility to carry car insurance, not a right to it. Seeing healthcare as an individual responsibility is based largely upon the fact that people are not allowed to collapse and die in the emergency room due to EMTALA. In fact, the ER can't deny care at all. So people who go without insurance can and often do end up costing the rest of us a lot of money.
So you argue that you do not have a right to health care...?The idea of individual mandates is not based upon healthcare being a right, but rather being a responsibility, much like carrying car insurance.
