As a freedom loving American citizen, I am not free to walk the streets anywhere and not be on film. Being watched by somebody. Somebody I don't even know.
I am not free to sit in my backyard and smoke a doobie. Not that I want to. I don't do drugs. But as an adult fully capable of making my own decisions in life- as long as they don't infringe on someone elses rights- I should be able to put any substance in my body that I want without the fear of being "kidnapped" and thrown in prison. Who is someone else to tell me what I can and can't do with my own body?
(BTW, this has NOTHING to do with abortion- which is murder and infringing on someone else's right to live.)
I am not free to drive my truck without some cop peering in my window to see if my seatbelt is on- again my body, my decision.
Big brother has intruded on our lives bigtime and you know it.
This is BOTH parties, my friend.
I can walk the streets here and not be on film. Does my right to film you trump your right not to be filmed? What gives you the right to photograph birds especially if they are on somebodies private property? Should you have the right to do 100 mph down the street in your car? Should you be able to work an illegal alien for One dollar an hour if both of you agree on it? Should you be able to wallk down the street naked? Why should you have to buy health, auto and home insurance? You may never need any of those. You are free to sit in your backyard and smoke dope, you are free to rape a child, you are free to murder. God gave you free will, you can do whatever you want you just have to suffer the consequences of your actions. Do you believe there should be any laws? Which laws? The ones that benefit only you?

Maybe nobody lost them YET. But the power has been given to the president. Read the bill. Obama signed it while everyone was preoccupied with New Years celebrations. FACT.

If they take a woman's right to abort a baby do you guys realize how many young, single mothers there will be? Not to mention there will be sooooo many kids up for adoption? Who is gonna take care all of those kids and where are they gonna find a home. If they find a home. I'd rather a girl abort a baby than give it a terrible life growing up. If a woman was raped and had a baby then that child will be picked on, beaten up, and eventually commit suicide. Look at the future. Not what suits you at the moment
WOW! My momma warned me there was people like you out there!

Then why do we support Israel? One reason, rich Jews in new York and Florida have politicians in their hip pocket because they give allot of campaign money out to politicians who support Israel, both democrat and republican.
I think we should just pack up and leave the middle east. we only get less than10% of our oil from there. That whole region isnt worth one US soldier,s life!

That's a whole lot of questions. Don't you know anything?:)

"you can do whatever you want you just have to suffer the consequences of your actions."
Consequences according to who?
If my actions do absolutely nothing to infringe on the rights of another person, why should there be "consequences?" BTW, I'm not talking about doing 100mph. That DOES infringe on others and puts them in danger. We need some laws. How many laws do we have? Is it even possible to enforce them all?

I always said that before being allowed to vote you should have to take a short quiz.
First question: What form of government do we have; a democracy or a republic?
Its a Republic and I want to keep it that way. A Democracy is two wolves and a sheep on a island voting on what to eat.

nope. Give someone a drink and put them behind a car. That's messed up. Alcohol is worse than weed. Weed actually helps cancer patients. Alcohol kills.

I beg to differ. The health care law has infringed on my freedom to not engage in commerce. Im being forced by law to purchase health insurance. If I refuse Im fined for doing absoultly nothing. Im made into a criminal and fined without a trial. The IRS can seize my assetts without due process. If that isnt losing a counstitional and god given freedom I dont know what is. another example under the patriot act in the days after Katrina the national guard went around kicking in doors searching homes & disarming people and removing them from their homes without a searck warrant ot just cause. And they did it inpart of the town that never flooded. I seen them live onTv kick down a door and shove down a 70 year old woman disarming her and breaking her hip. And You can bet your A$$ the children at the branch davidian compound in Waco texas lost their freedoms. Do you think if those davidians had been mainstream religion the same result would have occured? also under the patriot act any one of us could be detained indefenately without being charged . the goverment officials just give lip service to the counstition .

Just one opinion , I TOTALLY AGREE ......alcohol IS IS IS more harmful to the user and the public than weed . I won't argue over it , because if we disagree , neither of us will change the other one's mind .Like the subject of abortion .Whether you are pro or con , NO ONE will EVER change your mind .

Well, if you want to talk about taking away freedoms, you need not look any further than the Republican party. They are all about taking away personal freedoms.

Taken from another forum:
Protip: if you are advocating telling someone else how to live his life, you are not an advocate for freedom, small government or individual rights - you know the talking point platitudes you typically hear from the Republicans.
