But only for those YOU personally agree with, right?

What part of "liberty for all" do you not understand?

I don't agree with a person who runs around town murdering people with an axe.

Liberty of opportunity within the bounds of the law - not liberty of all action.

That is the core of conservatism.

Should we ban people?
Who and where. Maybe we need to start banning people from the site.

Then you posting history shows you are not a true conservative.

Sixteen YES votes?

Are these people abortion supporters?

If so - it makes sense why they would support a ban on people.

i clicked on Yes.....

If we ban oil we will end up banning people ..... With out oil there will be no elastic for bras and panties, no metal for guns and or any other tools, so no food for the masses.

No more economy problem either, and of course no ink or linen paper for so called money.

See how easy that is? If we just ban oil, everything else will be gone...... Only the few who can deal in stone age living like me will live and thrive.

I don't know one Democrat/liberal that wants to ban guns.

I am SO on board with that!! Just keep a select few with great genes to procreate. The world will be at peace for all eternity
