How can one have meaningful and productive dialog with people that apparently barely understand English or such basic concepts as sovereignty?

And we are supposed to discuss with them such complex issues as national health care? WTF?
If you can understand National sovereignty, why can't you understand state sovereignty? How about we start with the most obvious question, why is the Federal government involved in the first place? Healthcare is a commodity, like any other commodity, best left to the free market. Allow interstate competition and the cost will lower.

Let's try healthcare, marriage, civil rights just for a start.
Tell me again about this secret cache of historical documents that the founders wrote regarding the Constitution that only Supreme Court justice have access to and why there are split decisions?

What exactly is a civil right and what is its relation to the Constitution?
Thanks from Jimgorn

Give me your "vision" of how "interstate competition" in the "Healthcare" business will work.

Maybe that's a core decision that out NATION as a whole needs to finally make a firm decision on.
Is healthcare just another business, just another commodity, no different that selling cars or tennis shoes or breakfast cereal. Or is it a right of our citizens and essential to a healthy nation and our national security?

So Jimmy, when do you argue your next case before the Supreme Court?
What's your score with the THE Court so far, wins v loses?
Thanks from RNG

Then how come the free market has been unable to deliver quality health care at a reasonable price anywhere in the world?

I find it important to watch. Canary in the coal mine. The thing that I find interesting is when I start threads on how the Canadian government is making moves towards language laws they are not interested.

In 2015 the figure for British people who listed health treatment as their main reason to visit a foreign country was 63,000.

Indeed.
