So I've been struggling with this torture situation for a while and I feel that I have conflicting beliefs. 1. I probably identify with the left more then I do the right and I have a lot of very liberal ideas...mainly legalization of pot ( thats a situation all on its own.) 2. I feel that we should torture the shit out of those terrorist mother F's. I talk to my liberal friends about it and I get chastized for how I feel and they say I can't be liberal if I feel that way. Why not? Why wouldn't we torture and waterboard and put electrodes on their nut sacks if we could thwart another terrorist attack? I don't see why us lefties feel like giving those fuckers rights is gonig to save our country? Who cares, these dudes have C4 and ballbarings strapped to themselves and Bobby the hippy wants to make sure he has enogh water and light in his cell...give the fucker Alpo and never let him see the light of day! In short, can someone explain this passive line of thinknig to me?
