Do the post-election anti-Trump protestors respect Democracy?


I feel somewhat alone in watching thousands of people protesting against the US President Elect, Donald Trump, and thinking to myself "Why isn't anybody - particularly the media - pointing out how unacceptable this is?" I consider that the anti-Trump protestors are protesting against Democracy at least as much, if not more-so, than they are protesting against Trump. Incidentally, I didn't vote for Trump; I'm British, so I'm about 240 years too late to have any say in what America does. Hop...

Gun Control


Gun control is a completely unnecessary and near-idiotic idea promoted by the current left wing politicians, both in office domestically, and abroad. In the wake of the shooting of a gay bar in Orlando, it is necessary for members of LGBTQ to take action, and to take the responsibility of defending themselves into their own hands. Already, groups have been formed nationwide dedicated to this idea. Not only should members of the LGBTQ community defend themselves, but the general American public s...

Assisted suicide should be illegal.


"Assisted suicide" refers to "the act of deliberately assisting another person to kill themselves." == A Definitional Note ==The term "assisted suicide" is something of a misnomer. There's no crime called "assisted suicide." I do not argue a legal penalty for patients who seek help in dying. The crime at issue is assisting suicide, and it's targeted solely at those who help another commit suicide. The legal right sought by proponents is...
