  • America’s true colors

    The United States should enact a national Purge Day with a suspension of all emergency services and all crime will be legal for 24 hours. This will be great for population control, and it will give society a chance to do as thou will. It will truly show the true colors of humanity in American society, what humanity truly is. I believe the true human nature of human kind needs to be unleashed at least once a year in a awakening of the reality of human nature. To show the world who we are as Americans, as human beings, both mentally, emotionally, and physically. Weather it be indecent or decent human behavior. Let the world see what it means to be truly Free for at least one day a year. A Free nation, the United States of America a Free country ! Freedom ! Let Freedom ring 🇺🇸

  • A golden chance

    I say yes only because of the fact that some people in the United States would come to Canada if a purge happened ( as you can tell I am not American). So with a surplus of immigrants Canada can finally have a large population ( relative to Canada's size ( also would crossing into Canada be acceptable during the purge ( and would coming back to the states from Canada be legal also during the purge)))

  • Yes we should

    Yes because we would have fewer people to worry about, And we would be like the olden times with the Vikings. That would be so cool for me because I've always wanted to become a Viking. Vikings are cool like James bound cool. Yes Yes, Yea.America would be great again

  • Anyone who says yes is a psycopath

    If your saying yes, you basically asking for an apocalypse, which would be catastrophic. The only reason that I see people voting yes is because it would lower the population. However, a major counter claim to this is that over time, the population will go down dramatically. In actuality, if this happened, after the 3rd or 4th purge night, the amount of crimes would exponentially increase because people are going to start to get used to the purge, and then will do crazy shit even when the purge is over. It would lower the population so much that the purpose of the purge of the first place will totally backfire. Anyone would be mentally ill to think that a purge night would actually be a good idea after Ii just refuted the only "claim" for purge night.

  • This is just silly

    If this were to even happen, there would be immediate protests as most of America is peaceful and doesn't want killers and murderers to be protected by the government.
    But if this were to actually happen, the majority of Americans would bunker down in their homes and stay until it is over and really maybe some families with a violent feud or with political motivation might be killed.
    But aside from all that, that actually happening in America is completely unreasonable and I hope Trump is smarter than that.

  • It would be dangerous

    One its dangerous and it could be the end of humanity and plus people would be dead because of this horrible act of dangerous so there should no be a purge it would be dangerous oh and it would increases the deaths peer year and eventually people would become extinct

  • What the hell

    This is insanely dumb, and completely illegal. Do you have any idea how many people would die if this were created? At least 3000. It would have the opposite effect, as gangs would rule the streets, possibly enslaving civilians for their own purpose. Even if that didn't happen, it would be a huge fight between rebels and the government the next day, and would probably tear America apart into small factions fighting over power, with the government helpless. Think before you speak.

    Magna Carta Libertatum (Medieval Latin for "the Great Charter of the Liberties"), commonly called Magna Carta (also Magna Charta; "(the) Great Charter"),[a] is a charter agreed to by King John of England at Runnymede, near Windsor, on 15 June 1215.[b] First drafted by the Archbishop of Canterbury to make peace between the unpopular King and a group of rebel barons, it promised the protection of church rights, protection for the barons from illegal imprisonment, access to swift justice, and limitations on feudal payments to the Crown, to be implemented through a council of 25 barons. Neither side stood behind their commitments, and the charter was annulled by Pope Innocent III, leading to the First Barons' War. After John's death, the regency government of his young son, Henry III, reissued the document in 1216, stripped of some of its more radical content, in an unsuccessful bid to build political support for their cause. At the end of the war in 1217, it formed part of the peace treaty agreed at Lambeth, where the document acquired the name Magna Carta, to distinguish it from the smaller Charter of the Forest which was issued at the same time. Short of funds, Henry reissued the charter again in 1225 in exchange for a grant of new taxes; his son, Edward I, repeated the exercise in 1297, this time confirming it as part of England's statute law.

    The charter became part of English political life and was typically renewed by each monarch in turn, although as time went by and the fledgling English Parliament passed new laws, it lost some of its practical significance. At the end of the 16th century there was an upsurge in interest in Magna Carta. Lawyers and historians at the time believed that there was an ancient English constitution, going back to the days of the Anglo-Saxons, that protected individual English freedoms. They argued that the Norman invasion of 1066 had overthrown these rights, and that Magna Carta had been a popular attempt to restore them, making the charter an essential foundation for the contemporary powers of Parliament and legal principles such as habeas corpus. Although this historical account was badly flawed, jurists such as Sir Edward Coke used Magna Carta extensively in the early 17th century, arguing against the divine right

  • No good would come out of it.

    If this were to happen, thousands of innocent people would die, anarchy would spread, and there would be billions of dollars in property damage. People would lose their hard earned property. Letting all crime be legal is a terrible idea, and will result in burglary, arson, and overall chaos. The streets would be stained with the blood of the innocent, and society would fall apart.

  • I'm loosing brain cells

    Just the fact the this is even a thought makes me completely loose faith in humanity. What good would Americans killing Americans do? This would show to other countries that we have lost all sense. Other countries could take advantage of us during a "purge". If everyone is running around trying to kill each other then the opportunity for a foreign nation to attack us would increase exponentially. Please make the thought of this go away.

  • Why would you?

    It's illegal, and the president has no intention of doing that. Please look up the laws of the united states, and thenc ome back to make a new thing. Thank you and see you in another day, and in another time.

  • This is such a stupid idea, we would become a third world country

    No, just no. Not only would this lead to violence, it would lead to theft and vandalism. Chances are that thankfully few people would use "the Purge" to commit murders. They wouldn't want retaliation during the next Purge. They would use it to steal things or to commit acts of vandalism against people, organizations, and institutions that they don't like. This would ruin the economy. Why invest in a business when your rivals or malcontent customers will just go over and destroy the place during the Purge? And then you'd never be able to fire an employee, because they might use the Purge to destroy your business or even personal property in retaliation.

    And then everyone would fall into poverty. So, NO, the Purge is an awful idea.

  • Sorry but no.

    How many people hate their boss? How many people don't like their neighbors, friends, family, etc. This would be the world's worst catastrophe. If we had 1/5 people survive that would be lucky. Anyone who wasn't killing people they don't like would be shooting everyone else in self defense. It's not a "to bad today, be okay tomorrow" thing. Just one of these would destroy the economy. We're talking political leaders, investors, individuals, EVERYONE would be a target. What's to stop a sub commander from ordering a strike against an entire neighborhood of people he doesn't like? This is just illogical.
