"I'd like to clarify something that some people seemed to be confused about.
Health care is not a right. (Neither is education, or food, or housing, or a job.)
How can I be so sure?
Anything that requires the labor of someone else cannot be a universal human right.
Our Constitutional, Natural Law rights require only that others leave us alone. They require no labor, action, payment, participation or sacrifice of anyone else on our behalf.
We have the right to NOT be interfered with when we speak, practice religion, gather, or bear arms. We have the right NOT to be imprisoned without due-process, to be searched without cause, to be made to testify against ourselves.
See how that works?"
