To exercise the right to keep and bear arms you have to buy your own. Will the same be true of medical care?
Probably not. Obama only cares about positive rights. People are giving up their negative rights for the security of the positive.
And speaking of positive and negative rights, I understand the intent of the description, but I can't help but think of these descriptions as some kind of marketing tool. I heard an older clip of Obama talking about "positive" rights (on Glen Beck this morning), mainly with respect to wealth redistribution. Anybody not wise to the nomenclature would surely think these "positive" rights were great and we should adopt them.
