Guns are one of them. It has worked the way it was for over 200 years - let it alone. Balance the budget you morons in Washington - fix things that you broke, and let us alone. As far as the guns are concerned? I feel that people who don't want guns will always be against them, and people who want them will always have a way to get them. They should be registered, and nothing more - no discussions. The problem with Sandy Hook wasn't the guns. It was an idiot mother who had blinders on against a son that had issues and instead of taking him while he was still under 18 to work with the kid, she took him to a firing range because that's what SHE liked to do. Parenting is horrible in this country anymore.
Same with abortion. I'm definitely a pro-lifer for MYSELF. I would not ever have an abortion. But that's me. It is NOT my right to tell anyone else what to do with her body. That's for a higher authority on another day. The gov't can bow out of this as well.
Same with drugs. Make them all legal. The kids still are getting them, the only thing is people are getting killed trying to get them. And if they die while using them? Not my problem - they know the consequences. But with drugs, AND I think alcohol as well - if you have an accident and you injure yourself or anyone else? It's up to the insurance companies to pay or not to pay. If they choose not to pay - you know what you'll be doing and working for the rest of your life. I think we'd see a lot less drug users and Driving under the influence if the person knew they'd have to pay for bodily injuries caused to another person.
I'm now getting away from the podium.
You're making definite brownie points with me! I agree with all that you said. The Gov't doesn't need to babysit us. In some cities and states we are banned to so many ounces of soda we are allowed to consume and even the salt on the table is being pulled. That's pretty sad.
