There they are your candidates for Salisbury City Council. I was expecting some big name players to maybe file yesterday but only one extra person filed. I believe any of them except Terry Cohen and Pen Click Lover Tim Spies would do a fine job at this point, but we will learn more as time progresses.
Oh really? So you believe, Congressman Lewis, that people have a "right" to the time and property of other citizens? After all, you can't receive health care unless someone else spends either their time or they devote some type of property (drugs, medical implements, etc) to the effort, can you? Health care doesn't just appear out of thin air. That time a health care practitioner provides belongs to him. Just how much of that health care provider's time does a citizen have a "right" to? All of it? Only ten percent of it? And just how much of that person's property do you have a "right" to? Do you at least have to leave that person enough property for them to sustain themselves in business? Why? You have a "right" to that property, don't you? Oh! That person will be PAID for their property ... the drugs they produce, the medical implements they develop ... right? Fine; then were does that money come from? Oh yeah ... the taxpayers. I forgot. So, Congressman Lewis ... the person in need of medical care has a "right" to someone else's money, right? How much of it? What if they need all of it? What if they need a medical procedure that is so expensive that there is almost no limit to the amount of money that is going to be seized from some other taxpayer to pay for it? Doesn't the taxpayer have a right to the money they earned? Uh oh. We have competing rights now, don't we?
Can't you see it folks --- this "right" to health care nonsense is completely asinine and unworkable. When we start granting people the "right" to someone else's life we're on that slippery slope they talk about all the time.
