And freedom is not an endlessly expanding list of rights. The right to education, the right to health care, the right to food and housing - that is not freedom, that is dependency. And those are not rights, those are the rations of slavery; they are hay and a barn for human cattle.

He might well have added "the right to possess and smoke dope" to his list. The costs are socialized no less in the case of recognizing dope "rights" than they are in recognizing health care "rights."

And they are certainly no less dependency-inducing and enslaving.

Excuse me, are you articulating opposition to a "right to government supplied free drugs"?

Or is something more insidious, perhaps you oppose freedom from laws which require a police state in order to be successfully enforced upon the public? Do you oppose freedom from a government of limited power, in favor of government with the power to do whatever it pleases in the name of whatever needs pleasing?

There's worse things than drugs...

Then change the stupid laws so you can quit paying for them.

Gee, is that really too difficult for you to figure out?
