Rand Paul: right to health care like slavery. From the guy who felt stopping segregation in restaurants was illegitimate

Here"Basically, once you imply a belief in a right to someone’s services — do you have a right to plumbing? Do you have a right to water? Do you have right to food? — you’re basically saying you believe in slavery."

Well, I suppose that not having a right to food frees restauranteurs from the bonds of slavery...so that they can refuse to serve black people in line with their right as property owners.

Following Rand Paul's line of thought: do you have a right to vote? I mean, requiring people to work poll stations, even if it's so-called 'volunteer' work, implies that some people are required to do work on your behalf, ever year or so, just because you have this 'right', as you call it. Besides, the people who run elections who actually are paid are paid from tax payers' money, and no one ever asked them if they wanted elections anyways. So in other words, elections are legal extortion: money extorted from taxpayers, used to compel people to do work on these special days just because somebody said that folks have a 'right' to an election. I ask you: is the right to vote a negative right or a positive right, because all rights TO something and not FROM something are suspicious...
