Healthy Lifestyles Only

Healthcare is not a right, and the Tories just proved it. Britain has socialist health care because health care is a “right.” A right that they just decided you cannot have access to unless they approve. Got that?

You have a right to freedom of speech… unless you say harmful things. Is that a right?

You have a right to publish… unless you publish something unapproved. Is that a right?

You have the right to practice the religion of your choice… as long as you choose the one that a bureaucratic has chosen for you. Is that a right?

Speech, press, and religion are rights. The state doesn’t need to approve of how you use them for you to use them. Socialist healthcare is not a right, because you can only have it when the state lets you have it (and even then only when the state forces someone to give it to you.)
