    I keep hearing that rights are a creation of society or of others but if society creates rights then do I as a member of that society have the power to delete them? Can I delete your right to healthcare since I am a member of society?

    You are a member of the corporate society?

    In that case you currently can, but not for too much longer.

    I have a similar issue with people who tell me that other women died to give me the right to vote. They did NOT die to give me that right. They died to have that right recognized. Two totally different things.

    According to the documents that founded our nation - and as an American, I credit them with where our rights come from.... we were 'endowed by our Creator' (or God if you will) with certain rights. So, no. Society gave us fuck all for rights. We already had them. God gave them out.... it appears that He 'forgot' several. Personally, I think he was bang on about 'rights'.... the rest, we got to earn.

    The problem with that analogy is that a corporation can not delete your rights by not providing you with service because not doing something for your is non-action and I don't see how non-action can be restrained or controlled by government. What you want is to compel businesses to do something against their will which is a violation of their freedom and is equally as bad as the government compellling you to buy something from them such as this healthcare bill does.

    No. Apparently the US government acting against the Constitution can though.

    When we win it all back we're going to consign the Dem Party to the ash heap of history alongside their elders brothers in faith, the USSR by instituting National Voter ID for all federal election and a 2 question civics test to qualify to vote in any Federal election:

    1. Including George Washington, name three of Americas Founding Fathers

    2. In what year did the War of 1812 occur?
