Same thing with confiscation of personal property. Fail to pay taxes or get in legal trouble and they come and take it from you. Interesting discussion, one that always makes me wonder what the founding fathers would say. Would they be happy with all this? Or did they really mean total freedom no matter what?
    If that's true, why is alcohol legal despite the damage it does to society?

    What would this include? I know it typically is about abortion, but there is other things too.... like for example recreational drugs or a right to a dignified death. Getting back to abortion, the complicating factor is that some folks believe that the growing life in a pregnancy is immediately a person with rights. A difficult, but important discussion there.

    Yeah, put that option in and I'll be able to vote.
    I don't get it, but okay! I added other, so I'll consider this post your vote.

    Shooting innocent people is not a second amendment right.

    There is nothing in the second amendment that grants a right to murder people.

    Okay this is a long one and based on a gif I saw, but once I saw it I knew we had the right to do it - I just never have taken that right.

    If toast always lands butter side down and cats always land on their feet, people should have the right to tape a buttered piece of toast to a cat's back, butter side up and drop the cat on the ground. He will never land. He'll just spin and spin for eternity.

    I have at least the right to tell you about that and hopefully brighten someone's day.

    Thanks from Blueneck, StanStill, Chief and 1 others
