Gay marriage should be legalized
*This may not be too controversial to a more liberal group, but I am amazed by the amount of ignorant pseudo-logical homophobia and gay bashing that takes place, even in Cali. Who you love shouldn't deny you of any rights.

Oh. Shit. :|

That's pretty bad..
There are one in a million of the unfortunate that have the ability to make something of themselves.
That's really quite unfair, but i can see where you could have gotten that from.

I think a lot of people misinterpret what I mean by "strong".

'New Idea...'

1. There should be no seetbelt Laws. It should be up to you if you wanna buckle up or not.

2. There should be a IQ/education cap to get into office. Half the people who are in office have less than a 8th grade understanding of Science, Math, and History.

3. religion should not be forced onto kids under the age of 12. Once a child turns 13 he should have the right to choose there religion and look at the infermation for all of them, but till that time religion should not be left out of there lives. Because force feeding religion to your kids at a young age, does indeed brainwash them, and its a nasty barbaric calt action.

In the US, asian ladies are more into white guys and such.

Is that controversial enough?

Is that your view, or just a random fact? Either way, could it be that the white man has mostly a better status in society than some Asian? I'm talking about cash here. So the Asian chicks are after them because of money and status, or they just simply prefer the Caucasian stature?

Here's mine:

I truly believe people have the right to govern themselves. Yeah, I'm talking a limited government - Anarchy - Libertarianism what ever you want to call it. Don't bring history up against me, because times have changed. I used to be against abortion, because in my mind it is murder but other people have the right to their opinions and their beliefs. It should be legal because like someone mentioned before, we have limited resources, people are not mature enough to bring up a child. Make everything legal, we don't need government to restrict us from alcohol, drugs, or the right to choose one thing over another. A parent's job is to bring up their child, don't let government do it for you. You don't want your child mingling in drugs and alcohol, well instill that in your child and he most likely wont want to, you don't need big business and corrupt balding men to help you. Everyone has the right to their actions, and their later consequences. All people need is information as to what happens when they do something, but information that is not biased in any way. Gay marriage? Go for it, it's YOUR decision, as long as your actions don't limit and/or harm someone else's liberties, you're in the clear.

If the correct information is set out, then people wont make half-arsed decisions. No more right vs wrongs. (Yes I do realize the legal complications, the crime rates and everything. How anarchy works in theory but not when placed into action, take to mind that these are VIEWS we have.)

'Well not really I have found charts that show countries with less laws and freedom have less murder.

Did you know America people have less freedoms than the Japanese people. Yet America has 12.8 times more Crime.
More freedom less goverment controll = less crime, less stressed out people.

Hmm, really? Makes sense though -- if people aren't complaining about the money grubbers then there wouldn't be problems. If they're comfortable they wont give other people hell. I'll look into that, just because it goes against what American Government class has taught me, nice call Darkphoenix3450.

Frm President Abe.Lincoln

Why is this guy viewed as such a liberating leader, when has committed the most atrocities equal to G.W.Bush during the 1860's?

He suspended Habeus Corpus, used Government force to shut down newspapers, took us off the Gold-standard for the first time in US history, deported opposing congress men of his views, inflated the economy, raised dis-proportionate tariff taxes against the southern states, violated numerous sections of the Constitution, violated states-rights under the 9th and 10th Amendment.

Frankly I think the only good thing he did was die.

Yes! The founding fathers were great proponents of limited government. Government limits people. With laws, with grants, with socialistic programs like welfare. I'm not saying no government, as people simply cannot live in as large a nation as America without some standards and regulations, but only in regards to criminal laws and product safety. The rest is superfluous and subject to corruption. And as for parents bringing up their children, the health care reform bill will be helping them learn how to do that.

That's not strictly true. There are certain ideals on propriety the west holds that the east does not which might lead one to think that Japan has more freedoms than America, but it isn't true. Not less or more, simply different freedoms.... There are also about 200,000,000 more people in the US which could account somewhat for the higher crime rate.

1.) I have to agree with this. Child seats I'm not sure about but I know someone who was saved twice by not wearing his seatbelt. Both times he would have been crushed if he were not free to move from his seat. And a mother of my friend was in two motorcycle accidents in which if she had been wearing a helmet, would have been fatal. Seatbelts have no impact on other people and so the government has no cause to intervene.

2.) I don't think so. There are people with Harvard Law degrees that have no common sense. You don't need scholastic intelligence to be in office.

3.) Yes and no. Religion isn't in and of itself a hindrance to a child's moral growth. In fact it can be quite helpful in the early development of the sense of "right" and "wrong" rather than "yes" and "no". And I do like church for its social outlet... now if only they could maintain the grouping and mingling of people in a wholesome environment without that pesky God business.

Actually, most people in America die from heart disease, though there are plenty of different reasons for the heart disease.

Guns are the second largest cause of traumatic death in America after car accidents I think.

I thought only the initial concept was funded by the taxpayer as a military thing for communication. Then there were private investments and it finally went global in its development phase.
