    Let's admit it, we have a disparity of virtue in this nation. We have a nation of people who love violence, they love fighting, the love corruption, they are selfish, they feel entitled to other people's property, they are idle, they wasting time and money.

    There are of course other people who are using their time wisely, who are peaceful, who are honest and hate corruption. People who are charitable. Who work for what they want and encourage others to do the same

    But those people are fewer and fewer in our modern culture that encourages people to ignore virtue and morals. This problem is far more serious than any differences in income and much more destructive to our society.

    if you're worried, perhaps you should fight for stricter gun control and fight against the death penalty.

    until then, you're just another supercilious radical religious right nutbar who should worry more about your OWN morality and less about others.

    you know, that whole remove the mote from your eye thingie.

    I think you are more upset that I think you aren't.

    And how is eliminating a persons right to self defense really going to help on virtue?

    Are you honestly suggesting that in a free society that we shouldn't be concerned about building virtue in the community?

    Right, because while neither of those have a fucking thing to do with the thesis of the OP, you're a mindless partisan who thinks (if it can be called "thinking") in terms of platitudes and talking points.

    Ethics and integrity are rejected by your shameful party, but they are the basis of a civil society, not that your party seeks a civil society.

    You of course, are but a drone with no actual thoughts of your own.

    Removing the right of people to defend themselves from predation is not ethical, not that you have the capacity to comprehend such things.

    Come down from the moral high ground, horrible things happen everyday in the pursuit of wealth and power, it's called capitalism, the greatest distraction from a moral life that has ever been invented. Greed is a virtue and horrific violence is morally correct if the ends justify the means.
