It's to use violence to transfer the money of the poor to the rich and to use poor tax payer dollars to fund corporations that engage in the sex slave trade.

That would be like if I wanted to send someone positing liberalism (ex. "We should have a minimum wage.") to the Weekly Stupid. I think minimum wage is a dumb idea but that isn't the same as the kind of things Ima posts in his little thing. You may not agree with it but that doesn't necessarily mean it's stupid in the sense that the Weekly Stupid touches upon.

Whoever sends it can just include that, too.

Why shouldn't criminals be arrested? These morons are using our money to fund sex slavery.

If you're shocked, instead of mocking me, you should campaign to abolish the government. Enough is enough. I have never been so angry with the government as I was when I read about this today.

"The government"

Who exactly is a criminal? Everyone? Even the mayor of Anytown? What about postal carriers? Military?

That's not an inherent purpose. It may use the powers we give it to fulfill it's purpose to do horrible actions, but this does not mean it's purpose was to do those horrible actions. Unless you believe government's were designed for just this. Just because entity X does action Y does not mean entity X's purpose is to do or commit action Y....I may kill someone (hopefully not) one day, does that mean my purpose in life was to kill someone?

The government may use violence to do that, but this does not mean that the government's purpose is to use violence to do that.

Even if I accept your absurd proposition to be true, it fails to answer my question.

I probably should have been more specific as to what "purpose" meant.

I think the government was designed for thieves to fleece the people through extortion, and history backs me up on this point. That is the origin of the state.

That is the purpose of the US government. It is to provide evil corporate puppetmasters with the ability to destroy the lives of others. Your taxdollars are being used to fund Dynacrop and Dynacrop-derivative companies so that they can practice the sex trade.

Continuing to fund the government makes you complicit in the sex trade. We arrest them and put them on trial for HR violations.

LOL

Can you refrain maybe even ONCE from supporting something that exploits women?

I condemn the US government for being involved in the sex slave trade, and your response is not the critique the government but rather to attack me. LOOL

Just so that you know, I support the death penalty for anybody who is involved in the sex trade, either as a purchaser, or as a seller.

Oh, and you are not one to be talking about retarded comments, Mr. "Rape is beneficial for women" and "I 'didn't know' that the article I posted was advocating rape". The only thing protecting you from the Weekly Stupid is your friendship with Imabench. Nobody is fooled by you, however, Mr. "I'm a moral nihilist except in cases of abortion".

It's not even that, it's that you're calling for the arrest of the entire US government with a complete lack of regard as to what actually happens after that. You've gone off the deep end.

It's pretty obvious what we do after that. We abolish government and create an anarchical system. You are basically mocking me because I am an Anarchist. Thanks for that. Go ahead, put me on the WS for being an anarchist instead of a libertarian who thinks that property rights shouldn't exist and that anything anti-female is good.

You forget the part about Dark having a remarkably clean record.... Dark rarely says anything stupid that sticks out in a forum discussion and very few people ever have an issue with what he is saying. Im actually fairly certain that nobody has once submitted something stupid said by Darkkermit once in the 2 and a half months the show has been on the air.
