    What was your other solution to the financial crisis of 2008 and the government caused economic shutdown now?

    Really? The founders broke every law on the books. Don't you find that "odd"?

    "Everything Hitler did was legal." - Martin Luther King Jr.

    The Jewish people in the Warsaw Ghetto and at Sobibor concentration camp broke all the laws on the books during their uprising. So did the French during the French Revolution and the Hungarians during the Hungarian Revolution. Odd isn't it? Do you need more "odd" examples?

    Let's not forget the rounding up of those in the country illegally and placing them in cages.

    Sure they did. I make no quarrel with that. What I do find offensive is the level of penalty deemed necessary to punish that crime.

    Are you saying the Founder murdered, raped, stole, etc?

    The fact that they are breaking the law is irrelevant. Throughout history, many laws and those who enforce them have victimized citizenry. Slavery laws, pro-apartheid laws, political, anti-religious laws- history is rife with examples.

    If there is not a direct victim from the act then the law is unjust. One can not victimized themselves. In current society, drug law and prostitution laws are no different than the previous ones listed as the people arrested are the victims as it is their rights that are infringed.

    Yes, they did.

    The murdered in an illegal war, it was called The American Revolution. They also stole the land from the Brits.

    It's documented history that both Thomas Jefferson and possibly Ben Franklin committed rape.

    Your awareness of history is non-existent it seems.

    Yes, far better to be soft on crime like western Europe. The UK and France's justice systems have been co-opted by Islam. The only problem with corrections in the US is that we don't have enough prisons, freedom is for those who obey the law.

    I wasn't there to itemize all the laws they broke but from documented history they broke just about all the major laws (if you're trying to be semantic). Are you saying they didn't break any laws?

    I never did any such thing. Please point to where I posted that. You sound silly making crap up about what I posted. As explained earlier if you read through my posts, I specifically said:

    I have no idea what laws they broke but I’m not the one claiming “they broke every law on books”. You made that claim yet you have no idea what laws they broke. Brilliant

    So you never studied history or were you just born yesterday? What do you figure revolting against the King and his ruling government was all about? A law abiding funfest?

    Do you regularly make crap up about posters and invent their posts when you're clueless?

    Sure Einstein.

    No, it isn't. I have examples why this is the case after the sentence to you emboldened.

    You would have been a wonderful NAZI.

    Garbage. The law is unjust, therefore they are victims. You are just repeating the usual evil, blame-the-victim filth. By your evil, despicable "logic," Jews arrested attempting to escape Nazi Germany were not victims because they KNEW they were breaking the law. Such views are so evil and despicable, it is beyond the rich resources of the English language to express.

    Europe understands that having some leaves of a common weed in your possession is not rightly considered a crime. As a result, their police can focus on actual crime, violent crime, which is why their violent crime rates are so much lower than the US violent crime rate.
    I won't contest that, but the American justice system has been co-opted by the private, for-profit prison industry, which is far worse.
    :lol: Like the American Founding Fathers did....?? Is that how they got freedom? Obeying the law?

    You need to stop typing and start thinking.

    I'm sorry that you're so clueless that you can't (or won't) follow the point of discussion. There's no further purpose in explaining to you why many laws are not legitimate if they are unjust if you can't grasp the simplest concepts.

    So......you put your stamp of approval on the above things that alter the chromosomes of mothers children and are destructive to the human race.

    I drink coffee. It seems to have no lasting effects. An occasional beer or bourbon suits me fine, but those cravings I could gladly do without if I saw they would cause detriment to my children. I understand liberty, but your drugs you propose lead to bondage. So you say that type of bondage is fine for a society. I disagree with you.

    If certain drugs lead to bondage....then I am opposed to condoning them in the culture. I am for liberty.....all kinds of liberty. Your race implication implies that minorities, and maybe even yourself, are too undisciplined to reject the use of mind altering drugs. That is akin to suggest they are too simple to obtain voter registration as compared to their white superiors. I reject both notions and I think those race baiting notions would be a good substitute for the toilet paper that now seems to be in shortage. I believe Candace Owens would be in solid agreement with me.

    Please name the country that you think is....

    Reality is specific to opportunity and the lack of a ceiling.

    For example, Finland is scientifically considered to be the overall, "Happiest," country in Europe.... But has a much higher suicide rate than the US has.
