    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    That's not what the picture depicts, it shows boys running. So you support an exaggerated lie. I'm not surprise.

    They lost all their rights when they broke the laws in such a way anyway.

    Sure, but science offers the possibility of curing Reeves. Religion doesn't.

    Considering there are galaxies eons older than ours and that the stars closer to the galactic core are hundreds of millions/billions older than Sol, that's unlikely.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Dead serious, criminals should have absolutely no rights depending on the crime.

    How does one get such a touching, child-like faith in the state that they'd give it that kind of power? I wouldn't give the government the right to capital punishment- I don't trust the beast enough.
    How do you know you're 'liberal' with that level of confidence in authority?

    Already explained in other threads how I am mainly Liberal yet have other views compared to Liberals.

    Yes, in terms of handling cruel criminals, I do give a "child-like" faith in the govt. It's bad enough these murderers get fed and housed for life, may as well put them to use.
