The nanny state leftists are really kicking their big government statism into high gear. The EU just announced their plan to make vacationing a human right. I don't know if I want to live in a world where everything becomes a right granted by the State rather than a blessing given by God.

Anything granted by the State...can be taken away by the State.

Our founders knew this and were opposed to BIG GOVT.

Our school system is owned and operated by Leftists, so we will follow the big govt. Europeans to our demise.

"Anything granted by the State...can be taken away by the State."

Exactly. This is the fundamental difference between this new "right" as well the so-called right to health care compared to the actual rights in the U.S. Constitution, for instance. The Constitution merely affirms the rights that our Creator has given us. It does not propose that the government, in its goodwill toward the people, has furnished them at the expense of the taxpayer.
