I Have a Right

To not be forced to pay for something that I don't want.
Including but not limited to health insurance.
I'm being forced to pay for health insurance now, but I don't like it.
When I have a choice, I take the $$ I could have spent on insurance and spend it on self-care.

This is exactly how I feel about any type of mandatory "health care." I would rather spend my own money on healthy, natural food than on an insurance plan that will inevitably only attempt to solve my problems with dangerous, synthetic pills. I rarely have any serious health issues these days, but when I do, diet and exercise are sufficient solutions almost every time. I shouldn't have to help fund a system that I know only worsens my health.

which right would that be? Right number.....?

Health Insurance, drivers license renewal fees, owning a business, etc is a privilege, granted by someone to someone else.

Perhaps it is one of those many unenumerated rights.
Rather, I think I have the right to good health unencumbered by poisons, pollutants, vaccinations, or other potential profit making endeavors by others, upon my body.

Right #8405. I agree with you that rights do not exist. rIf rights exist in any form, they are not god-given, they are granted by society.. So, to me rights ARE privileges. Many times rights/privileges are only granted if we demand them. Certainly they may not be granted, my supposed right could easily be ignored. They often are. This society talks about freedom, even while we the people are maintained as a "market" by which profits are made. If you have a right to not be poisoned for profit, you're going to have to fight for it, just as I fight for my right not to spend my mula on total BS. Congress does not represent me so taxation without representation is still an issue.
