    Socialism/Communism are great on paper, but all you need to do is look at Venezuela or North Korea see why these economic systems fail

    Repealing the Second Amendment is the first step to Totalitarianism, and it needs to be prevented to protect our freedom

  • I’m disappointed that people still fail to acknowledge this - there is no scientific instrument capable of measuring moral rightness and wrongness. What is right, and what is wrong are merely perspectives that the individual decides for themselves, with hardly any agreement as a society.

  • War is usually caused due to conflicts/ revenge between countries. These countries more often than not have done something to deserve war. An un born child on the other hand has done nothing.

  • Being in support of preserving life does not necessarily mean being against the act of killing in any instance. In case of self-defence, for example, you sometimes have to choose between losing your life, or taking the life of the aggressor - there is no way to save both lives, hence you have to make a choice.

    A war may, in fact, save much more lives than take. I would argue that the US involvement in the World War 2 saved orders of magnitude more lives long-term, than were lost in the military action. Just imagine what would have happened if the Third Reich had taken over the world... The number of lost lives would be unimaginable.

    I have always had trouble with people condemning such wars as, say, Vietnam War or Iraq War. They like waving signs around saying "Make love, no war", ignoring the fact that not much love was being made in those countries before the US involvement. They like to pretend that all those people who died as a result of the US involvement would have been preserved otherwise - while the reality is not nearly as clear-cut, and, in fact, it is very likely that the lack of the US involvement would have led to far more casualties, and much worse consequences for the respective regions as a result.

    There are definitely wars that should not have happened, but there are also wars that either were inevitable, or were preventing a bigger evil from happening. Being against all wars is an extreme case of pacifism, and, as can easily be demonstrated, pacifism will always lose the competition against more realistic and pragmatic approaches. It only takes one person in the entire world to not be pacifist, for pacifism to become unviable. And there are definitely a lot of people who are out to take advantage of misguided pacifists on the West. People like Putin or Kim Jong Un are masters of using naive Western teenagers holding "peace" signs to further their nefarious goals.

  • murdering someone else is unspeakable and indescribably horrible, but if you try to take my life or someone one I love, I will try to stop you, even if that means taking your life, and won't loose a minute of sleep if I'm forced to, there's no guilt when there's no choice in that instance.  I think abortion should be extremely rare and extremely limited.
