    Awesome that you point out the fallacy of the “right to healthcare” as being doctors forced to care for people without pay. Who would have even mistaken this as the argument?
    There is another distracting argument that is commonly made by the right – global warming. Global warming is being caused by the destruction of our earth and for some reason they focus on the temperature which distracts from the man made destruction and pollution. Can we turn this around and focus on the destruction and pollution instead of global warming a concept many are not able to grasp?
