    Because if you truly don't want the government to involve itself in our personal lives and decisions then..........

    You oppose efforts to outlaw abortion.

    You oppose efforts to outlaw gay marriage.

    You oppose efforts to outlaw euthanasia.

    You opposed the Bush administration's involvement in the Terri Schiavo case.

    You oppose laws against prostitution.


    There are more but you get the idea. Each of the above items are very personal issues that belong to the individual, not the government.

    And if anyone says they disagree with the above then they are actually in favor of more government control over our personal lives, right?

    If not, why not?

    I oppose the government stepping in and having anything to do with those issues that you just mentioned.

    Great example of circular logic there dumbass! All the things you list involve more government control, what a sorry excuse for a thread.

    Jeez, I thought I started some dumbass threads, but you take the cake!

    Hmmmmm....let's see.

    YOU say that it takes more government control to leave people alone on personal decisions than to involve itself in them? :cuckoo:

    I can see why, with that logic, that you admit to starting dumbass threads. The first step to resolving an issue is admitting that you have a problem. Step one complete!!

    Sure. It's a classic example. Why should the government care (or anyone for that matter) if two consenting adults make a business transaction on pleasure?

    I'm with you, I want a lot less government, and Bush was a borrow-and-spend Socialist.

    There is one known way to limit government - DIVIDE IT! Which we just did, so I look forward to Obama battling GOP Congressmen, if it's anything like Clinton vs. GOP, we'll be in much better shape in 6 years.

    Most people don't want less government; they just want less of the other guy's government.

    There's a lot of wisdom in those words. :up:

    I agree. You can go to Marine World, get a massage, etc., but screwing is off limits. In fact being xrayed to go to the Bahamas is allowed, but not consensual screwing in a private room.
