"The people of the various provinces are strictly forbidden to have in their possession any swords, bows, spears, firearms, or other types of arms. The possession of these elements makes difficult the collection of taxes and dues, and tends to permit uprising. Therefore, the heads of provinces, official agents, and deputies are ordered to collect all the weapons mentioned above and turn them over to the government."-- Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1536-1598) Japanese Chancellor of the Realm, preeminent daimyo, warrior, general and politician of the Sengoku period
Leftists don't believe and they don't think; they feel. And they are not liberal or progressive, so stop using the words they want us to use when describing them.
Americans have bought the lie that our republic is a democracy and found out that democracies allow 51% to vote your stuff into their pockets. Voting for a living is easier than working for it. However, that will not last forever. "Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide."-- John Adams
With our current drug policy: Street drugs are readily available. Drug lords have gotten rich, powerful, and deadly. We need to pay for more prisons, guards, judges, attorneys, court houses, etc. People rob and burglarize us to pay for the expensive street drugs. Citizens who earn the displeasure of politicians can be selectively prosecuted. With such a successful plan, why would nut cases suggest we change it to one like we use with another drug--alcohol?
Leftists (they're not liberal) say that if a program works, change it. Another example: "We are a wealthy nation, so we can afford to [change the policies which made us wealthy.]"
When are you who oppose the arguments of leftists going to stop referring to them by the lie that does not describe them? I know that is what they want to be called, but they are not liberal or progressive.
I know freedom is un-American, but why not try it? Vouchers can't be worse than socialist (government owned) schools.
Even though they are Marxists, everyone must call them liberals or progressives.
