It basically means what it says.
People can not give the gov't a right they themselves don't have.
I.E. I don't have the right to kill you, so I cannot give my gov't the right to kill you for no reason.
I miss the old members.

So how is mandatory healthcare any different than manditory wearing a safety belt?

In terms of liberty, just about everything the government has done has screwed us, yes.
