    What kind of a man is a man who has not left this world a better place?

    No one is in control.

    Who woulda thunk? India where gang rape is a popular pastime.

    Just due to population size... the one that matters is the per 100,000 chart.

    Roughly half of the gun deaths in the United States of America are suicides. When someone attempts suicide, gunshot is the most lethal choice. The US ranks 34th among the nations of the world in suicides per unit of population.

    Suicide is one of the indices of the stress which a society places upon its members. [Ed.: There are others, such as drug use and alcoholism.] Conclusions can be drawn.

    It is just an ignorant poll trying to do any manipulation.

    What is the population of India compared to Mexico? But extra stupid people won't think of that, will they?

    The Democratic Party campaigns to increase suicides 24/7 by constantly declaring people live in an evil country of evil people, that no one who isn't born rich has no chance in life, and that we all are going to die within 10 years away.

    The Democratic Party might as well be handing out cyanide pills to the mentally ill and deeply depressed people. How many people today will commit suicide being stupid enough to listen to the Democratic Party and the propaganda MSM, press and media outlets owned by the corporate super rich of the world?

    Hi! Thank you for taking time to post yet another diatribe. What would we ever do without them, I wonder.

    Regards.
