When advocates of "free" government health care simply state that a prosperous and compassionate society should want to provide for all of its people as a humanitarian basis for it, at least that's a matter of opinion.

A prosperous and compassionate society should want to provide for the "less fortunate". Its called charity. Providing for another via the barrel of a gun is NOT charity.
