LOL That's what people say who lost a debate and were proved wrong. I don't take TPX seriously. I do take the lies and hate-filled propaganda seriously. I must admit, I do enjoy proving hateful RWL's wrong...even more so if I use their own propaganda against them. Shooting them down...just like a video game. Instead of "Duck Hunt", it's RWL Hunt. Instead of using guns...intellect is the name of the game.

The only people who need to worry about how many children they should have are the parents. The Government has NO business in any ones life. They have no business getting involved and need to worry about taking care of Government business only.
People need to decide what is right for them and if having 4 to 20 children is what they want, and can care for them feed them and not be dependent on welfare than every one else needs to but out.
Because I'm know to be contrary:

So what happens when these parents miscalculate? Or don't calculate at all? And, suddenly, their 20 children are getting free lunch, free breakfast et cetera. The mistake made is thinking everyone procreating is also responsible.

For the same reason the government can't ban assault weapons just because a few "mentally ill" abuse them and kill 20 school kids (not all from the same family, naturally).

But see, I think they should.

Not ever moron should have the right to buy an 'assault' weapon without some sort of hoop to jump through. Some sort of basic minimum requirement - I like a background check, registration and documented training or military service.

Same goes for procreating.

I agree, Ex - just was baitin' ya'.:o)

For some reason, some people nowadays don't think we should have any laws or regulations - society should go all willy-nilly and stuff - just like in the Ol' West.

Be careful, I'm feeling my oats today. Or something that means I'm contrary. LOL

Gotta protect the kids and give them a good foundation - regardless of their parentage. At that point, it becomes the government's interest - no amount of patchwork charity is going to be sufficient.

The 2nd Amendment arguments are just crazy. People live in such fear. Really? Do you really think you're going to need your gun to overthrow the government? Just lunacy. It's like the whole nation subscribes to the National Enquirer and also believes in Bat-boy.

What do people need more than just a few kids for anyways? Are they running a farm and need the help (workers) or what? Planning on having a future football team?

I just don't see the point in having more than a few even if you can afford it. What purpose does it serve to pop out 6, 7, 8+++ kids?(not to mention with each new child you have, the less time you have to spend with the others. To me that's just selfish.)

Government should be able to do whatever they want as long as they are republican and let us have our guns!

But, as soon as they become democrats, we will make noise about revolution and civil war if you even THINK of taxing our Job Creators!!!

Yup.. I call it flexible morality. That doesn't mean it's right. There are things in the human make up that aren't or shouldn't be flexible...honor, integrity, ethics and morality. These make up the fabric of society. Once those things take a back seat to selfishness, greed, lies, manipulations, cruelty...etc..societies/civil izations fall a part.

Are we ROME yet?

I don't have an agenda other than wanting some information on how the government would enforce a two child policy. I've already asked the questions in another post. Why not go back and attempt to answer those questions. Here's another for you to ponder. The Catholic church denies abortion AND birth control.

Four of the subjects you asked about are in the same category...economics. That leaves Syria and N.Korea. So say something...give your opinion on something.

selfishness, greed, lies, manipulations, cruelty...etc are all part of societies. Even the founding fathers recognized those faults.

They don't deny it. They acknowledge the existance of abortion and birth control, they are just against it.

When Syria falls apart, Isreal is going to have an unimpeded route to Iran and that has the Ayatollah shaking in his turban.

Yes, evil, corruption has existed from the beginning of mankind. The hallmark of a civilization is to examine the morality of mankind and to improve. Our founding fathers recognized the possibility of corruption which is why the produced the CONSTITUTION. That's why laws are made...to address the immorality and the way citizens conduct themselves in a civil society.

"Why Rome? why not compare the U.S. to the U.S.S.R?"

Because Rome was a REPUBLIC.. just like the U.S.. The U.S.S.R. has never been a republic so no comparison can be made. If you're a student of history, then there is no need to explain what caused the greatest civilization on earth to fall into ruin. Do Nero and Caligula ring a bell with you?

Yes, I know the one child policy didn't work in China. I've already addressed that.

Apparently, you don't understand the meaning of deny. The Catholic Church DENIES access to abortion and birth control. They don't deny these things exist! LOL

"When Syria falls apart, Israel is going to have an unimpeded route to Iran and that has the Ayatollah shaking in his turban."

It doesn't take Syria to fall apart. Israel has bombed the crap out of Iran several times. Syria is a CIVIL war. Then there is the U.N., China, Russia, Lebanon. I doubt very much any Iranian leader is "shaking in their turban". You need to stop watching FOX and Glenn Beck!
