I know you didn't actually take anything i said to mean that we were closer to the 3rd world than first. My take is that to stay a first world going forward, we need to look at the areas we are currently lacking in. To me, that is healthcare, pure and simple. I don't think the gov't needs to be involved in all aspects of life, but this is one with which I have no issue.

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. How is health not intrinsic to two thirds of that statement?

Well maybe we sould look at the current stuff that the goverment is doing wrong and fix them first before it tries to take on anything else. I'd take goverment run health Care if I could opt. out of SS and have back 1/2 of the money they have allready taken from me.

Problem is they don't have that money to give back to start with. They stole the money from SS and if any investor did anything close to that they would be in jail. See SS sould have been very easy for the goverment to run. You take in the money but it in a safe place then pay it back when the person retires. They even had the advantage if the person died with no family they goverment got to keep the money unlike a private investment companies. Now people want me to have the confidence in them to run Health Care which is 100% more complicated then saving for retirement.

Are you joking?? Did you see the press conference yesterday? The media coddles him like nothing I've ever seen before, and when he was asked real questions, he ducked and dodged like a pro.

pursuit of happiness - for me, that means someone has a right to seek out happiness, thus limiting a government's right to interfere in your life; it does not mean that you have a right to medical care, simply that in the condition you are, no governmental rules or structures should infringe upon your abilities to your life's pursuits (obviously the most limited since your pursuits can't degrade another person's equally valid pursuit etc.)

life - health is intrinsic to this, but saying your health is a "right" is not the same as saying the government would give you healthcare... more so it means that others can't kill you or deprive you of health maliciously and get away with it

liberty - n/a for this discussion

again, being a part of a right does not immediately make it a government obligation to provide it. If the government ruled tomorrow that all Redskin fans are banned from using any doctor or seek out any medical treatments, that would be denying an inalienable right.

Can you blame the media? Can you blame them? I mean, they're the ones that actually have to ask the questions! And here the responses :confused: Forgive them if they're happy to FINALLY have a President that can speak in complete sentences! A president that can answer their questions. A president that won't throw them out of the room for asking the "wrong question". Its just.........Its weird man! I mean, remember the last Supreme Court nominee? The lottery chick? Can you imagine being in the media and having to go through that? Having to ask the questions? Particulary, why he appointed a Lottery chick? Just think about it from their perspective for a minute...............And give them a break man. Give us a break! We're still getting used to it.

They took your money and stole it from your account and never invested it in your funds.

also fascinating is that the Declaration of Independence was a treatise declaring freedom from oppressive government behavior. That your partial quote was actually used to say government should stay the heck away from these things. And now you use it to beg big brother to please please put people back under its thumb.

The founders wrote that to break from government and let men rise and fall on their own merits.

We certainly have come a long way my good people.

I don't see that a gov't option as being "oppressed." Let's not get crazy here, no one is inviting Queen Elizabeth over the pond. Specifically regarding taxation without representation, no one is doing anything with that. IF our elected officials pass some form of this plan, then it's the will of the people, maybe not all of the people, but the majority. It's not something being forced upon the taxpayers by the divine will of Lord Obama.
