Hello. Many Americans today can agree that our situation is horrible and is worse than when we had Bush.
Well ive been thinking of starting this group for a while, but what made meactualy start it was Headhunter128s stupidity and insults he thinks Obama is...
Abortion eh? Let me ask you something. Why is it that in the medical community you are considered dead when your heart stops but a child is not considered alive when their heart starts in the womb?
Yes, that is very true. However, no one should ban or support it, it should be a personal decision of whether the parents can support the child, no one else's. I wouldn't say it is murder, but it isn't totally right either.
True, but it is not your decision to make, it is only up to the parents, and if they don't/do support it, then they can decide the baby's fate. 'To each his own' is a great saying in personal matters like this.
Because they're actually considered dead when the brain stops. Yuri, this isn't a life vs death argument, it's a life vs existence argument.
I am South Korean, our nation was better with my ideals.
In Singapore, the nation that I base my drug policy on, it has one of the lowest drug rates in the world because they don't have a culture that promotes and tolerates it like the US's. But, I also believe every person has the right to a chance to life, that is why I am against abortion in most cases, not in the case of rape or incest.
Oh sorry, I read what you wrote completely differently.
Gun control? Relaxed policy. We should have better screening for who gets guns (ill elaborate)-Plenty of countries have guns and very few murders- imo is a culture problem, not a "gun law" problem. Not enough people respect or understand firearms, so my idea would be to allow civilians who want to get a gun to have classes, preferably by trained military. They should pay for these classes out of pocket, but we can also allow for financial support programs.
In my ideal nation, we would be teaching kids about guns in schools just like sex- instead of turning our heads and shunning gun culture as if it is a crime against humanity.
We must admit that we have a problem though, we have far too many murders in this country because of our fear culture (and that isnt just guns, a majority of murders are with blunt weapons)
There is also way too much stigma in the US against people with mental health disorders- and people constantly deny they are flawed- we need better health care.
I'd socialize that.
I also think people should meditate. Everyone likes to either make fun of that or simply dismiss it, but it is the best way to be at peace in your own mind, and become a wise and less destructive human being.
And hell, if I trust a guy with a pistol, I may as well trust him with assault weapons.-this would just require even more screening-which is easy for a small percent of the population. just like buying an 18 wheeler ^^
...Have you ever had an addiction? It's nothing like a compulsion- quitting something cold turkey is absolute hell- and I have a profound amount of respect for anyone who can do that.
Socialist healthcare is awful.
I mean healthcare needs to at least be regulated and subsidized, rendering them into government funded non-profits.
NOBODY should die of any preventable diseases EVER, no matter what their economic status is.
When it comes to drugs, check out Portugal's policies.
It's a lot freer, and it requires no taxation-
my idea here would literally pull money out of our fruitless drug war, and pour it into saving human lives.
+just because something is legal doesn't mean everyone will do it.
Yes, I agree with that. As the NRA states, the only thing stopping a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Besides, now guns are being 3D printed with no serial code, so how is the gov going to stop that?
I have never been addicted drug-wise, but still, they know the risk and accepted it. Totally their fault.
That's just it. Most people don't. Not everyone has good health education, and what may be considered stupid to us, may be completely normal to other people. It's a matter of perspective.
