When liberals speak of "rights," they refer to the moral justification to use force against others. Their conception of "rights" is completely opposite to natural rights. It is about force rather than freedom. The "right" to health care is actually a "right" to force others to provide health care. The "right" to a minimum standard of living is the "right" to force others to pay for that minimum standard of living.

Oh, and don't forget the other 'rights' upon which liberals depend, namely:

-- the right to crap on police cars when they don't get their way
-- the right to camp out in the state capitol and have their elected Democrats flee the state when they don't get their way
-- the right to attack minorities that don't share their views, while claiming that Republicans are racist
-- the right to claim that a reduction in the rate of spending GROWTH is a 'cut' that will allow the 'millionaires and billionaires' to avoid 'paying their fair share', even as the rich pay the vast majority of income taxes
-- the right to insist that the media ignore their leadership failures, like Detroit, Chicago, California, and Illinois, not to mention the numerous Obama administration scandals
-- the right to pin every whack job to the Tea Party and/or Republicans, until it is conclusively proven that they happen to be politically agnostic or leftist
-- the right to have the media ignore the rapes at the various Occupy movement, lest any adverse publicity hurt the 'movement' whose objectives were feckless and aimless at best and destructive at worst
-- the right to run a campaign based on distraction, such as focusing on Big Bird rather than Libya
-- the right to insist that all the above hypocrisy doesn't matter because they supposedly 'care more', even as their policies leave a vast wake of personal and societal destruction
