Democrat Two Step
  1. Declare something a fundamental right:

      San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who became internationally known for his campaign a year ago to legalize gay marriage, said on Monday he considered wireless Internet access a fundamental right of all citizens.

      Newsom told a news conference that he was bracing for a battle with telephone and cable interests, along with state and U.S. regulators, whom he said were looking to derail a campaign by cities to offer free or low-cost municipal Wi-Fi services.

      Wi-Fi is a short-range wireless technology that is now built into most laptop computers and is increasingly offered on handheld computers and certain mobile phones. Local officials are mulling plans to blanket every nook and cranny of this hilly city of 750,000 residents with Wi-Fi access.

      "This is inevitable -- Wi-Fi. It is long overdue," Newsom told a news conference at San Francisco's City Hall. "It is to me a fundamental right to have access universally to information," he said.

  2. Fund it with tax dollars--or do you want to roll back all civil rights and repeal the right to vote for blacks???!

Your point is correct, though some readers may not get it. May I boil it down?

If it has to be FUNDED, it ain't a fundamental right!

Of course there will be those who claim to know of fundamental rights that do have to be funded. Have fun.

Remember when abortion became a privacy issue?
