Why do so many go to the dark side? I always thought contemporary thinking was to be open minded and tolerant...since the 60s.
To make the country BETTER!
But there are SO MANY old testament, do the crime so do the time people around here. Wanting to disassemble public policies and progress to help citizens in order to help business enterprise? To go BACKWARDS! Sigh.
Liberty that so many claim a virtue, isn't about adhering to rules or having the right to cheat people. It's the opposite, so long as you cause no harm to others. Freedom to do what you want without so many rules.
The business rules are decided by us all to keep the greedy from ripping us off.
But they're also over-policing us individually...while our gumment is not policing the police. Doesn't the idea of TOO FRIENDLY prosecutors not bother you?
Why are they looking the other way at citizen abuse? It's a huge issue and blacks know it the most. Yeah we whites who drive nice cars aren't hassled...but what about charges for driving or WALKING WHILE BLACK? Does that not offend your sense of justice? Doesn't it make sense that the Bill of Rights should protect us from heavy handed police doing their usual 'stop and frisk?'
One wonders how police managed to escape 9th grade civics class and their lessons on the Bill of Rights! Maybe cops need to have annual continuing education credits to remind them, so they must be accredited to police us... like medical people who ALSO have life and death control over us?
Congress? Anyone, anyone?
We send our addicted young people and liquor store robbers to prison for stealing fifty bucks but not white collar banksters for stealing fifty thousand? Who's in charge, anyway?
Seems like state legislators spend every waking moment passing laws restricting freedom and protecting the rule-makers and business establishments, and so often do it with a religious objective of self-righteousness. Yeah, I know, most of them get elected by YARD SIGNS, not by their beliefs. So we don't really know who we're voting for and the system makes it hard for us to find out.
Sadly the media doesn't cover legislative, school board, or city candidates BEFORE elections, only when they later stick their feet in their mouths. That's too late for us on election day. So much for media acting in the PUBLIC INTEREST!
What is it about liberalism that is so evil since Reagan declared it so?
Do they not understand liberalism? Where's the misconception? Are liberals trying to correct the false attacks? If so, we're losing!
Do Americans really mostly want an ORDERLY society? We all know democracy is messy, but those in control really don't want the people meddling in public policy. High school civics teachers should have taught them better, I'd say.
Anybody understand these issues and want to offer an opinion without namecalling?
