What Is a Right?

by Andrew P. Napolitano

In the continually harsh public discourse over the President’s proposals for federally-managed healthcare, the Big Government progressives in both the Democratic and the Republican parties have been trying to trick us. These folks, who really want the government to care for us from cradle to grave, have been promoting the idea that health care is a right. In promoting that false premise, they have succeeded in moving the debate from WHETHER the feds should micro-manage health care to HOW the feds should micro-manage health care. This is a false premise, and we should reject it. Health care is not a right; it is a good, like food, like shelter, and like clothing.

What is a right? A right is a gift from God that extends from our humanity. Thinkers from St. Thomas Aquinas, to Thomas Jefferson, to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to Pope John Paul II have all argued that our rights are a natural part of our humanity. We own our bodies, thus we own the gifts that emanate from our bodies. So, our right to life, our right to develop our personalities, our right to think as we wish, to say what we think, to publish what we say, our right to worship or not worship, our right to travel, to defend ourselves, to use our own property as we see fit, our right to due process – fairness – from the government, and our right to be left alone, are all rights that stem from our humanity. These are natural rights that we are born with. The government doesn’t give them to us and the government doesn’t pay for them and the government can’t take them away, unless a jury finds that we have violated someone else’s rights.

What is a good? A good is something we want or need. In a sense, it is the opposite of a right. We have our rights from birth, but we need our parents when we are children and we need ourselves as adults to purchase the goods we require for existence. So, food is a good, shelter is a good, clothing is a good, education is a good, a car is a good, legal representation is a good, working out at a gym is a good, and access to health care is a good. Does the government give us goods? Well, sometimes it takes money from some of us and gives that money to others. You can call that taxation or you can call it theft; but you cannot call it a right.

If you like this site, please help keep it going and growing.

A right stems from our humanity. A good is something you buy or someone else buys for you.

Now, when you look at health care for what it is, when you look at the US Constitution, when you look at the history of human freedom, when you accept the American value of the primacy of the individual over the fleeting wishes of the government, it becomes apparent that those who claim that healthcare is a right simply want to extend a form of government welfare.

When I make this argument to my Big Government friends, they come back at me with…well, if people don’t have health insurance, they will just go to hospitals and we will end up paying for them anyway. Why should that be? We don’t let people steal food from a supermarket or an apartment from a landlord or clothing from a local shop. Why do we let them take healthcare from a hospital without paying for it? Well, my Big Government friends contend, that’s charity.

They are wrong again. It is impossible to be charitable with someone else’s money. Charity comes from your own heart, not from the government spending your money. When we pay our taxes to the government and it gives that money away, that’s not charity, that’s welfare. When the government takes more from us than it needs to secure our freedoms, so it can have money to give away, that’s not charity, that’s theft. And when the government forces hospitals to provide free health care to those who can’t or won’t care for themselves, that’s not charity, that’s slavery. That’s why we now have constitutional chaos, because the government steals and enslaves, and we outlawed that a long time ago.

Where are we going? and, Who Cares?

What are You gonna do about it? thanx Judge Napalitano......Selah!!!!!

Facts, vs Hearsay

To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature,

It is now official you are ALL corrupt morons:

* The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775 You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.
* Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.
* Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.
* War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.
* Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.
* Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.
* The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.
You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM??

Senate Republicans have just released an outstanding chart highlighting the accounting games that Democrats are playing with the costs of their proposed health-care overhaul. The Democrats assert that their Senate bill would cost $848 billion over ten years. But Congressional Budget Office projections show that only 1 percent of those costs would kick in prior to the fifth year of what the Democrats are calling the “first 10 years.” In the bill’s true first 10 years (2014 to 2023) — that is, in the first 10 years in which it would be operational to any meaningful extent — the CBO projects that the bill would cost $1.8 trillion.
But it gets even worse. The CBO doesn’t say that the bill’s total costs from 2010 to 2019 (99 percent of which would come from 2014-onward) would be $848 billion — or that its total costs in its real first 10 years (2014 to 2023) would be $1.8 trillion. Rather, it says that these would be the gross costs of the bill’s “expansions in insurance coverage.” The CBO shows that there are many other costs in the bill as well, including spending related to the CLASS Act, risk-adjustment payments, funding for the government-run “public option” (not a cent of which is included in the figure for “expansions in insurance coverage”), and other new federal spending.

The question remains, when do we, the American Citizen, do the Right Thing? It is time to stand up for this Country that allows us such great Freedoms....

A US SENATOR on justifiying HealthCare reform


Please do not reply to this e-mail. If you need to send another message to Senator Nelson, please use the form on his Web site:

Dear Mr. GreatStoneMan

Thank you for contacting me about health care reform.

On October 13, I joined a bipartisan majority in the Finance Committee and voted to pass the America's Healthy Future Act of 2009. Senator Reid merged this bill with another bill passed by the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee earlier this year, and unveiled the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2009. On November 21, I voted to bring this bill up for debate.

I am pleased with much of what is in Senator Reid’s bill. It would allow those who are happy with their insurance to keep what they’ve got, including veterans and seniors on Medicare. It creates State-based exchanges where those without coverage, or those who are unhappy with what they have, can get coverage at an affordable price. The bill also would hold insurers' feet to the fire, requiring them to cover everyone and preventing them from dropping someone who gets sick. Additionally, it contains several measures aimed at reducing overall medical and prescription drug costs and eliminating waste and fraud in the system. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has estimated that Senator Reid’s bill will reduce the Federal budget deficit by $130 billion over ten years.

Among the improvements I added to the bill in the Finance Committee is a provision that would preserve benefits for an estimated 800,000 Medicare Advantage enrollees in Florida and another provision that would protect tax benefits for seniors who have high medical expenses. I am happy that these provisions are included in Senator Reid’s bill as well.

As for a public option, Senator Reid’s bill includes a public option that would allow States to opt out if they choose. I support this plan because it will provide consumers with more choices and make it harder for any one company, public or private, to dominate the insurance market.

I intend to improve this bill by introducing an amendment that will force pharmaceutical companies to give rebates to the Federal government for certain drugs purchased under the Medicare Part D program. These rebates will save the government billions, which will be used to fill the gap in Part D coverage known as the “doughnut hole.”

I am hopeful that the Senate will vote on this bill before the end of the year. Regardless of where anyone stands on the specifics, I think we all can agree that the system we have can be unfair and too costly, and needs reform. Again, I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue. Please don't hesitate to contact me in the future.

Senator Bill Nelson

P.S. From time to time, I compile electronic news briefs highlighting key issues and hot topics of particular importance to Floridians. If you'd like to receive these e-briefs, visit my Web site and sign up for them at


Dear Sir. It is evident that you think that Government can do better than the private sector in creating a better health care organization. IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO GO!!!!!

I do not.

Thus as you have decided to vote for the "NATIONALIZATION" of our HealthCare, and ALL related aspects of our countries' HealthCare facilities/systems. You will find that many are beginning to realize that this "program' you support will, eliminate Doctors, they will retire. Reduce the income to medical professionals, and eliminate the greatest healthcare system, and medical providing service in the history of man.IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO GO!!!!!

YOU would rather tear down this service in order to provide some small semblance of service to those few that don't have access, or choose not to have access, rather than adjust that which is, and reform the problems.IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO GO!!!!!

I see you and this agenda of reform you so adamantly support, as political party loyalists gone amok. Even Howard Dean, who you have recognized as a very knowledgeable on this subject, has stated "Kill the BILL', yet, you cannot see the wrongheadedness of your position. IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO GO!!!!!

You don't deserve to be in DC, and again since you so strongly support, like a lemming, that "Party Line", we need to remove you.

The facts don't justify your actions. The reform should be in insurance access, across state lines, create competition (a capitalistic principle you have rejected); in tort reform; and in tax credits to assist those who have a need to have insurance. IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO GO!!!!!

There should be a reform for pre-existing conditions; a way for the insured to change insurance carriers. However, to jail people, or to mandate' participation,as a revenue source goes against all that our CONSTITUTION, that you swore an oath to protect, states.IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO GO!!!!!

Again, you have rejected listening to the majority of your constituents' voices, and put the politics of your democrat party ahead of the well being of your country. Those are the deeds of a traitor....IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO GO!!!!!

I have copied this, sent to the local newspaper, that won't print it, and posted this on my blog:

THE USA Needs A Leader Like This:

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd - Australia

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks..

Separately, Rudd angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote:

'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. '

'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom'

'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!'

'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.'

'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.'

'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'

'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.'

Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, WE will find the courage to start speaking and voicing the same truths.

So Little Time.......

Hard to figure where to begin, there is so much "news".

THE OBAMA-NATION by DEVASTATION, continues........

The Global Warming lie, manipulation of facts by Professor Mann (from Penn State, creator of the Hockey Stick Temp Graph), and Nasa, first. Then, our Congress now claiming the emails, claiming these new facts, were 'hacked', WOW. OUR CONGRESS WANTS TO INVESTIGATE THE "HACKING" OF THIS INFORMATION (a lie); BUT, NOT THE INFORMATION IN THE EMAILS, ITSELF, NOR THE LIES PERPETRATED ON THE CITIZENS OF THE USA, by Gore, Michael Moore, and the other Global Warming Fanatics in these released emails.......THE FACTS: A Freedom of Information request in the UK, to the UK, was submitted, and responded to (not hacked), and this info came out, Gore must be rolling over in his....., well soon to be, grave, I understand he's not going to Copenhagen, NOW, and our Congress still has plans to deal with 'Cap and Enslave', my, my....

Our Military is gonna put on a Court Martial for three Navy Seals, accused of allegedly punching a captured terrorist in the belly, this guy was the leader of the group that captured three Private Contractor Americans, in Iraq, murdering them and then dragged their dead, burned bodies through a town in Iraq, for all the world to see, and finally hanging them from a bridge. I guarantee this, had I been there, that thug, and the entire town, would have had more than a punch in the belly.........

The Obama HealthCare (Population Reduction Plan)has been re-calculated to finally include the costs from actual implementation date, not just the ten year plan, excluding the 'fund raising' time of the first four years that were cost-free, the bill is actually over 2.5TRILLION DOLLARS, where is the outrage? Where are the Barack bashers hiding, only in the blogs, and FOX. so sad how blind (distracted by the 'beautiful people) we are.

Is there any correlation between the "Dumbing Down of America", and this gradual implementation of this plank of the Progressive Agenda? Does the HealthCares focus on not caring for, and reducing expenditures for, the elderly, assist in reducing the number of people still alive that remember what Liberty actually is? The Commies in the Soviet Union, burned books, and killed off all the past vestiges, and the learned individuals, to stop the 'passing on' of the the heritage of their Country, too.......

Reports out now that over 60 Million workers in the United Sates, don't contribute at all to the Income Tax pool, that is nearly 40% of all workers, how much can the Government tax Hounds take from the wealthy, alone? No outrage. yet?

How about the "JOBS FORUM" in D.C., this week, the only invitees were those who created the initial stimulus package, the TARP Program (bailout), and the Unions, I guess the Unions were there to see how many more Private companies Barack was going to give them.........(GM, etc) Interesting to hear the the American Chamber of Commerce, The National Federation of Independent Businesses, and The National Manufacturing Association, were ALL not invited, these Associations represent over 60% of American workers, the last thing this Administration wants is to have representatives of other opinions involved with discussions. Maybe it is a party thing, the dems didn't want the Republicans involved with HealthCare discussions/negotiations either.......Hmmmmm

Oh, and least we forget, the "so-called" DC Party Crashers, that won't go before Congress Voluntarily, or Miss Diseree, the WhiteHouse Social Director, won't go before Congress, because of "Separation of Powers Clause", the Social Director, NOT under Executive Privilege? come on, this is another of these Obama distractions, he's doing something else, while we weren't looking, as this media is focused on this charade.... This is such an obvious deal, bet Barack goes to Copenhagen and signs off on another Kyoto Agreement, giving away more of our tax dollar, or, maybe the results from the Job Summit, he keeps spending like this Monopoly Money...while we weren't looking.........selah

Wake up and smell the roses America, ............GSM
