But still, it amazes me that outspoken, law-abiding, conservative, constitution-believing people could ever support an such an obvious round up and throw-away the key... Even if it did net quite a few bad guys.
Makes me want to go live on an island. No, you don't need to second that motion..
I'm starting to rethink the way the way we look at the political strata in this society. In my view, the most important distinction now is not conservative vs. (liberal/progressive/whatever), but those who support freedom and the constitution and those who support authoritarianism. An example is the number of "conservatives" on my FB page who blindly support the authorities/public servants in all situations, and who's mantra seems to be "well if that unarmed guy hadn't been running, he'd be alive now, right? Nope, just answer my question, If that guy hadn't run he'd be alive, right?" Very disillusioning.
