    Calling you mentally ill is not an insult

    You have my sincere sympathy and I hope you recover

    Once again you have failed to answer my question:

    Do you believe anything considered "essential" to an individual's pursuit of happiness should be provided by the government?

    Are there any limits to what my be considered a "right"?
    Should everything that is consider to be a "right" be provided by government?

    More of the stereotypical left wing BS.

    You would have to have independent thought to have your own views... what you spout is what your talking heads tell you, nothing more.

    It stands to reason that you would not consider calling someone you do not know at all, mentally ill, an attack. Children are the same way.

    It is the responsibility of government to protect the rights of it's people not to meet the material needs of it's people.

    I see you don't mind state spending on armies and police

    And mass murder and propaganda

    But not on healthcare for Americans

    No, those bastards can go hang

    Perhaps what this extremist lefty would like to do, is redefine 'common defense' to include viruses and such... then he can include his, not provided for in the constitution, healthcare for all. Heck, both sides have twisted the constitution for generations to do what they want, and the left is so damn good at it, why not include health care as part of 'common defense' ...

    As stupid as that would be, count on it being an angle taken eventually.

    As usual, you are avoiding my questions:

    Are there any limits to what my be considered a "right"?
    Should everything that is consider to be a "right" be provided by government?

    Of course there are limits

    Do you think you have made some devastating point here?

    Clue, you haven't

    Your question is utterly irrelevant

    You think it is right to spend much more on arms and war than on healthcare at all and you think it is definitely more important than spending money keeping your own population healthy

    That is a fact

    Your healthcare system is both crap and discriminatory

    That is a fact

    Again, dodge, duck, weave...

    Again, defense is in the constitution, health care is not.

    I do not believe you think there are limits.. as you have not stated the, but rather, done the duck and weave yet again to keep re-spouting the talking point you picked up somewhere.

    US arms spending is used largely for attack

    That isn't in the constitution

    Where is health care spending in the constitution?

    Again, avoiding what you do not want to hear. No shock there.
