Mickeymouseman
TUF

People shouldn't own guns. Guns are a problem in society, and result in the death of thousands every year. Whoever accepts this will have to prove how guns are helpful rather tahn a problem. Ican't grasp how anyone could even be for gun rights!...

nyyfan
ConservativePolitico

My belief is that federal government subsidies on high-speed rail would benefit the United States greater than the continual subsidy of the current highway system.

I will not contradict myself on matters of politics, accepting this the Con accepts only political contradictions qualify, as such no semantics can be played such as interchangeably using Libertarian and libertarian, however claiming to be one and then contradicting that by claim very un-libertarianistic claims(such as supporting drug war AND nationalized healthcare)...
