Meets you with:
Who the frig wants a leader that thinks "I don't care, I don't care.... I don't care!... Oh... And, I forgot to mention, I don't care!"
So you've already one foot in the grave
maybe, but the alternative is "I plan on getting all up in YO' business!" Who really wants THAT?
I'd like to let it been known here that the L*P*C*S policy on gay rights, make them complete equals to homosexual couples. This is within government
and law. Churches and religious organisations, however, can set their own positions on the issue. I think it would be healthy for gay and straight
people, to question their own religious lifes, hopefully their religion does openly accept them, if not, its a learning curve (I'm athiest, and
Aside from the fact that "gays" already ARE "complete equals to homosexuals", The Curmudgeon platform does the same - when you remove government
licensing and the attached perks from a protected class, it has the net effect of instantly making everyone equal, since the protected class is no
longer protected, or enjoying any advantage over the unprotected classes.
About your atheism - "I don't care". religion has no place at all in politics.
Next, you go on to state "you don't care* about abortion. Yet some how when you decribe it, you sound like the thought apalls you you talk like
this; "if she choices to *kill* her *offspring*... If a guy murders his pregnant wife, its not murder for the child" ...
Of course it apalls me personally, but I am absolutely unwilling to make that choice for YOU - that's your own business, not mine. I've never been big
on killing babies, whatever their state of development, but it brings me no end of amusement that there are those who support abortion and decry dead
babies in war time. As I said above, it's just a matter of timing.
Killing is killing, but it never fails to shock me when a parent kills their own.
Its almost like you view the female as a wild animal? As for the guy murdering comment, what's that? Childish tit for tat? If she can do this, then he
can do that! Not very clear thinking now really is it?
As far as the guy offing his pregnant wife, charging him with TWO murders in the same jurisdiction where that wife could have killed the baby with
impunity is NOT "equal representation under the law". I'm all about equality under the law in both that case and the case of gay marriage.
No, the female is no more a "wild animal" than the male is, which means she doesn't get a pass for killing if he doesn't. It's really simple - NO
protected classes under the law! It's as unfair to say "ah, she can kill - it's ok, she's just an emotional woman!" That places her somewhere LESS
than the man.
Drugs!... Oh yea, you don't care! Well, my party think all drugs should be *fairly re-assesed* to see what danger they pose to the public, and re
organised and legalised appropriatly.
My party says your party are nutty control freaks, thinking that they have some sort of deity-driven mandate to decide what's "good" for some third
party, picking this drug and saying "that's ok for you" and that one saying "but we ain't gonna allow you THAT one!" The Curmudgeon party platform
says that the individual can decide for his or her self just what they want to eat, drink, sniff, or smoke. Darwin will take care of the losers in
that deal, and the human race as a whole will smarten up over time as negatives remove themselves from the gene pool by making poor decisions.
Ill keep it brief due to TnCs, but opium should *not* be on the streets! But weed *should* be in your bedroom
Who are you to make that arbitrary decision for some third party?
Arr some mentioned the death penalty? It should be illegal.
Dont get me wrong, I often want some people dead lol. But on a moral ground we all *know* *deep down*, its not something we should practice.
It's hard to argue that, once the death penalty is meted out, that miscreant will ever do whatever brought it on again.
Life inprisonment, however, imagine those people, who *hurt* children, and some of the other worst kinds of people you can imagine, suffering... For
*life*. The prison gaurds could turn a blind eye to the treatment, some of those skum get. (Reserved for bad people only!) Death is far to quick for
Cruel and unusual punishment, not to mention it allows for escapes and the like, unleashing them on the kids yet AGAIN!
And then you briefly skim over foreign policy, like its not something that requires much thought! Ha!
It can be easily summed up - be nice, unless they don't want to be nice, then be as nasty as humanly possible.
Not on a bet, now that I see what you're all about!
