Why make immigration harder? They all know how to swim and climb walls so whats the point. Why make gay marriage illegal? They kiss their partner in public all the same. Whats the problem with North Korea having nukes? Nuclear weapons don't kill people, they sit there and are harmless. Its the people that kill people right?
Discussing this here is as productive as it is anywhere else. No one calls the fire department for their neighbors fire, only until its at their door do they care.
- Drugs are not an inalienable right
- Marriage is a right, therefor we have gay marriage. Although many argue the federal government should have no part in marriage at all, and at the least, marriage should be dealt with at the state level. That's a whole other discussion.
- Illegal immigration is not an inalienable right.
- The UN's purpose since WW2 is to disarm the world of nukes. Many treaties have been put in the place to prevent nuclear weapon testing, development, and usage as well as attempting to reduce the number. North Korea is blatantly ignoring the world community in doing what they are doing.
Bans and laws can only be put forth against things that are not our inalienable right to have as defined by our founding documents. The sole purpose of these rights is to protect the citizens from the government. It is because of these rights that we are most diverse, equal, and free nation on this planet.
