On this day in 1775, Patrick Henry proclaims "Give me liberty, or give me death." He never did mention anything about healthcare.

So why are people like you making such a big fuss about it?
4/2/2010 10:04:09 AM
Clearly he wants death
4/2/2010 10:06:30 AM
And your point is?
4/2/2010 10:08:27 AM
He also didn't mention anything about cars, trains, computers, corn, pepsi, youtube, light bulbs, Aritha Franklin, Rome, WiFi, cookies, jewelry, or ceramic pottery. See how much of a non-sequitur all those are? Yours is just as bad.

What is fundie about this? Sounds like an ordinary political argument, though a very weak one.
4/2/2010 10:19:18 AM
I read about the afterlife
You know, that might be because -- THEY DIDN'T HAVE AN INSTITUTION OF HEALTHCARE THEN! What a concept!

Patrick Henry didn't say anything about speed limits, either.

Zeus Almighty Zeus Almighty
"On this day in 1775, Patrick Henry proclaims: "Give me liberty, or give me death." He never did mention anything about health care."
Or Interstate highways. Or a standing army. Or a post office. Or an airport. Or people that watch blips on little screens to ensure that those big metal flying things in the sky don't crash into one another. Or a bus station. Or an Internet. Or vaccinations. Or safe prescription medications that have been tested to ensure they're effective and safe. Or clean water. Or sewage. Or a 40-hour work week. Or ambulances. Or fire trucks. Or police cars. Or an agency that helps ensure the meat I purchase is not bursting with bacteria. Or equal rights for all regardless of race/ethnicity. Or space shuttles. Or landing men on the moon.

You're at liberty to persuade a majority of your citizens to repeal the legislation if you wish.
4/2/2010 10:29:44 AM
Therefore, it follows that public policy vis-à-vis healthcare in 2010 should match that of 1775.
4/2/2010 10:32:39 AM
Didn't say anything about making idiotic statements on the Internet, either.
4/2/2010 10:44:21 AM
In 1775, you were better off without it!

I agree with #1142113. In fact, this argument, while pretty tenuous here in the real world, is startlingly sane by Conservapedia standards.
4/2/2010 10:53:19 AM
Mr. Henry has both liberty and death now.
4/2/2010 10:53:57 AM
Also, he wasn't even talking about anything to do with healthcare moron!
4/2/2010 11:06:10 AM
Don't see why this is here. Mr Henry did not, indeed, mention health care. He didn't mention a whole bunch of other things either.
4/2/2010 11:07:36 AM
I'm tempted to call Poe on this one...
4/2/2010 11:26:50 AM
Alright, no healthcare to you. Have fun with your infections!
4/2/2010 11:32:55 AM
@ Zeus Almighty, kudos.
4/2/2010 11:44:31 AM
He never did mention anything about healthcare.
And neither did he mention Conservapedia, so fuck off you braindead imbecile!

Wow. This is a serious contender for the dumbest thing I've ever read.
4/2/2010 12:07:50 PM
Nor did Marie Antoinette say "Let them visit a doctor after they eat cake"....
4/2/2010 12:19:09 PM
Someone doesn't understand the meaning of the word "liberty".
