A "right" is a moral principle defining and sanctioning a man's freedom of action in a social context. There is only one fundamental right (all the others are its consequences or corollaries): a man's right to his own life. Life is a process of self-sustaining and self-generated action; the right to life means the right to engage in self-sustaining and self-generated action- which means: the freedom to take all the actions required by the nature of a rational being for the support, the furtherance, the fulfillment and the enjoyment of his own life.

I am writing this letter to express how enraged I am at the U.S. government for considering healthcare reform that will force me to pay for the medical bills of others, control my healthcare options., and drive the country I love towards financial ruin.  If the healthcare reform bill passes, it will be one of the worst weapons in the government’s arsenal to redistribute yet more of my wealth to any mooch who thinks they are entitled to the fruits of my labor simply because they can ...

I respectfully ask that you oppose this total government takeover of our health care system, because it does not belong to you, nor does it belong to everyone as some communal loot. These are services provided by individual doctors, nurses, and others in the medical field -- and no man's labor can be considered a right without making that man a slave. If you do not oppose this usurpation of my individual rights, I will resist it and fight your fines, threats of imprisonment, and demands on my bo... [continue reading]

You are playing a very dangerous game and the end is near.  If you continue to disregard, not only the voice of the people but the Constitution itself, it will rip this country apart.  You know exactly what you are doing, more than most people.  What are you counting on?  Are you just going along to save your own skin, hoping that someone else will save you?  It's too late for that.  There is no wiggle room left.  And if so, you are a coward.  If you truly believe that socialized medicin...

Dear member of Congress: I'm watching the totally unconstitutional dirty tricks being used to ram through this health care bill, playing out before our eyes, and am dumbstruck to think that I am still living in America.  If this bill passes, you will have been  a party to the start of the Second American Revolution and will be held accountable for the consequences.  You have the fuse in your hand and are about to light it. WE ARE NOT GOING TO SIT IDLY BY AND TAKE THIS ASSAULT TO... [continue reading]

Congressman:   I just wanted to let you know that if the health care bill passes, you might as well arrest me now.    I vow to not comply with any part of this health care legislation.  I will not buy the package; I will not pay the fine you will impose on me.  I will make sure that my refusal to comply with your statist tactics are broadcast to others, as you and I both know that the majority of Americans do not want socialized medicine.  I will stand in front...

  Health care is not a right.   The ability to be free from government coercion in seeking and offering health care services according to one’s own values is a right. It is an individual right, the protection of which is the only proper function of our government.     The proposed health care reforms, slated to be rammed through Congress using the budget reconciliation process, or whatever other means necessary (!) are no more than further violations of the very ri...

Are you paying attention?  If you pass or even "pretend" to pass Obamacare, Americans will rebel.  Pure and simple.  Do you not know the principles upon which this country was founded?  Let me give you a brief history lesson.  The colonists were fed up with taxation without representation and many other violations of their rights by King George (for a complete listing of their grievances, I refer you to the Declaration of Independence signed in 1776).  The King ig...

Governor Otter; On behalf of every freedom loving person in the country I say thank you for taking the bold step of standing in defiance of the growing tyranny in the nation's capitol. Your move to protect the citizens of Idaho from the threat of the federal government's attempt to create a nation of slaves is the best news of the day. Hopefully your bold action will be copied by all governors of these United States. The Founding Fathers did not risk everything to create an all powerful governm... [continue reading]

Dear Mr. Kucinich: I hear that you are now planning to vote for the health care reform bill.  That's the way to stand on your principles, letting everyone know that you can't be bought --- oh, wait .... And further congratulations are in order on making the choice to place yourself on the front line for removal from office this November.  Please enjoy the little time you have remaining.  The Titanic may be going down, but the subservient band members continue to play on.

Editor:   In 1986, my grandmother was 65 years old and lived in Vienna, Austria.  She needed a replacement battery for her pacemaker.  She was denied this small procedure due to her age.  According to the health care system that Austria has (and the bureaucrats in Washington want to impose on us) my grandmother, at age 65 was deemed too old to have a new battery for her pacemaker.   Do you think that it will be any different in the United States? Do you want your... [continue reading]
