    Having it be a criminal act will get liberals more political power?

    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.

    The Wrong Thing, of course.

    The average lifespan of a human is conservatively 80 years. That's 701,280 hours, or 42.1 million minutes. Bear with me.

    The Shoe Bomber With the Unspellable Name (SBWUN) influenced policy so that every man and woman boarding a commercial flight has to spend five minutes taking their shoes off and putting them on at the security check.

    There's rougly 2.75 billion air passengers annually. That means every year SBWUN has wasted 2.75 x 10^9 x 5 = 1.375 x 10^10 minutes of life, or the equivalent of 1.375 e10 /42.1e6 = 326.6 lives.

    The SBWUN kills the equivalent of 327 people every year now.

    Mass murderers like that should be executed.

    The Panty Bomber will naturally cause the introduction of more life-destroying hassles at the world's airports. Why shouldn't this mass murderer executed?

    The Messiah will do nothing effective, and that's all that really matters.

    I think you are confusing liberals with Democrats. That is what political parties do.

    However, I don't see how the designation pertains to public perceptions. Most people won't meander on the difference provided the culprit incurs a high penalty.

    By lying.

    By stealing.

    By breaking the Constitution.

    Liberals get more power by all sorts of methods, not one of which is honorable or even decent.

    By lying.
    Only within parameters established collectively by all parties and ideologies.

    By stealing.
    Hyperbole.

    By breaking the Constitution.
    The Supreme Court makes it impossible for anybody to consistently break the U.S. Constitution, or at least, it makes them not culpable for breaking the U.S. Constitution.

    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
