there should be universal background checks on gun sales


about forty percent of gun sales currently do not involve background checks. that means there's plenty of head way to be made here.true, some will just get guns illegally. but not ALL of them will. this is common sense. to say otherwise is like saying we shouldn't have crime laws cause some crime will occur. not everyone who is denied is a black hoodie who will stop at nothing to get a gun....

Has Obama been beneficial for the United States?


During his two terms of presidency, Obama has given us many wonderful things. He had created a healthcare system that is universal and stays with you even if you lose your job.

A one world government


So I was wondering about how the world would look if we were to have a one world government. The world would have just one government with complete control over all nations. This would obviously require so much hard work for it to ever come true but I believe that we could do it, if we joined together as one.
