>> Somewhere it is written that we have he right to 'LIFE,LIBERTY and THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS"....Q: Can we have "life" and "happiness" without good health? <<

The right to pursue happiness is not the same as a government which guarantees it will be given to you.

And if you think about it, a system which would take resources from other people in order to make you happy kind of negates the "liberty" part, doesn't it?
