    Now if everyone were forced to partake in polygamous marriage, you'd have a complaint. Otherwise, you got nuttin'.
    Things like divorce and determining child support are already enough of a headache. Take a few minutes and just think about the complications polygamy would stir up, even just legally speaking.

    A good point that'll be noted and used in future discussion.

    Your post doesn't make sense. Either you're trying to troll me or you're spamming.

    Here you are misrepresenting what I said. Here is the actual quote:

    Notice how you cut a significant portion of what I said out of your statement? I'm sure you did. Just thought I would point that out for you.

    Quote Originally Posted by jamesrage View Post

    And this is one of the main reasons why it is more logical to have very few laws regulating personal morality such as: someone’s private sexual behavior. What business is of it yours? And how does their decision to practice various sexual behaviors pose a threat to society?
    It doesn’t.

    Quote Originally Posted by jamesrage View Post

    The only laws needed are laws that protect the well being of society. Is a specific action causing harm? No? Then it should remain sanctioned.

    Quote Originally Posted by Zyphlin View Post

    Kind of like liberty. If I wanted society to reflect my views, I would limit certain behaviors regardless of whether or not there is a threat to society. See this difference?

    Nonsense. I only want as much liberty as possible for everyone. The people who force their beliefs on others are the ones who want to limit the private activities of other people to fit their limited paradigms. I make no such assumptions. As I mentioned earlier, my beliefs may differ from another person’s beliefs, and yet it isn’t me who wants to limit their behavior. Who is forcing who in this scenario??

    More nonsense.

    Liberty defined:

    Liberty is a concept in political philosophy that identifies the condition in which human beings are able to govern themselves, to behave according to their own free will, and take responsibility for their actions.”

    You apparently wish to limit people’s behaviors based on your beliefs. I support as few limitations as possible. Who supports liberty? Not you.

    I already addressed the only thing that counts... only one spousal deduction per household. All the rest, hey, they want the extra spouses, then they get the headache if it doesn't work out. Not our problem.

    Just to check the consistency of this topic, is incest allowed?

    Re: Should we legalize sexual freedom?

    I am for legalizing sex. And yeah let's keep inside, of course, and away from the eyes and ears of children please. I say legalize prostitution, because then you can collect taxes. I say legalize gay marriage, just because it does not affect us as a functioning society, and it's a natural right in my mind. And I'm sure we could get some taxes in on that as well, at least license fees. If government shouldn't have a say in other parts of our lives, why in hell does have the right to tell us who to sleep with and who to marry. BULL
