Healthcare As A Right = Slavery

And Senator Rand Paul is correct:

"Our founding documents were very clear about this. You have a right to pursue happiness but there is no guarantee of physical comfort. There is no guarantee of concrete items. In order to give something concrete or someone's service, you have got to take it from someone so there is an implied threat of force. If I am a physician in your community and you say you have a right to healthcare do you have a right to beat down my door with the police, escort me away, and force me to take care of you? That is ultimately what the right to free healthcare will do. If you believe in a right to healthcare then you are believing basically in the use of force to conscript someone to do your bidding."

Healthcare may be necessary, and it may be important, but it is not a RIGHT!
