An amendment to the Constitution

When the Founding Fathers wrote the Declaration of Independence, they said that all are entitled to "Life, liberty and pursuit of happiness." Furthermore, they said that governments are instituted to protect these rights. Therefore, I think the Constitution should be amended to guarantee health care to everyone. After all, what is life without health?

You may wonder how we would pay for this. It would be difficult, but, the measure of a civilization is how it treats its least fortunate. Who knows? By recognizing human dignity and the value of human life, we may reap many benefits that will increase our wealth and benefit us in other, loftier, ways. For example, we might abolish the death penalty.

Or, we could just make me Queen. Yeah, that's the ticket!
