36th reason that katija gruene would make an excellent (Co)President of the United States of America is because katija gruene campaigned as an independent Green Party member and there are more independents than there are Democrats and Republicans combined.
That just means most people are disgusted with the TwoParties, it doesn't mean they think Algore's insane policies should be put into practice by a Green government with tyrannical socialist leanings. Shocked

#38 (I think) reason why katija gruene would make a good (Co)President of the United States is because she is willing to command United States Department of Defense Armed Forces.

I think every young child should be forced to play active shooter [b]for at least six hours/week[/b], starting at age four. Smiley

I think it would have beneficial effects on society.

"Active Shooter" encourages players open fire inside classrooms and auditoriums as a heavy metal soundtrack thumps in the background, and is set to launch on June 6.

It's in bad taste - no question about it.   But it should be allowed to be released, imo. 

Let the market decide if the video game is successful or a flop.
Are you still holding with this opinion chief?

I'm sort of infused right now with the Founders notion that a basic morality among the People is essential to a free society...

Something along the lines of, if the majority of people are thieves and random mass murderers, it will take a police state to protect the lives of innocents...

And police states are notorious for being neither limited nor much concerned about individual liberty and individual rights... And they are usually thieves and often mass murderers.

It's a conundrum for sure.

You'd think such questions would have been settled early on, but they persist.

Luckily, crime rates have been falling...

Maybe playing Active Shooter teaches children about individual responsibility and respecting the rights of others?

Yes.  Keep government out of morality.

Active Shooter is a video game.  It is intended for entertainment.  It's not intended to "teach" anything.

If anyone misconstrues the intent, then that is on them - not the developers or publishers of the game.

People need to be responsible for their own thoughts and actions. 

Don't blame your (or your children's) misdeeds on a video game.  Or a movie.  Or a comic book. 

Libertarianism is about personal responsibility.

It took you this long to realise something so basic?

Maybe there's a reason people who go to bad schools and grow up in big cities support government. It doesn't make it right, but it does make it understandable.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

You accept human morality of any sort?

What about all those times you claimed you didn't know right from wrong, but use all your supergenius power to follow "the rules" anyway, not because the rules were right, but just because you knew you had to follow them?

Some of them do...

What sort of government? Some of those people seem to be anarchists? How do you explain them?

Some people who go to really good schools in rich suburbs support big powerful government that can bring about social justice...

This has nothing to do with right and wrong; what you were talking about before is just true. It takes more force to keep the peace when more people are actively using force to destroy the peace.

People who live easy lives in good neighbourhoods grow up to be ignorant libertarians who think government isn't needed at all. People who grow up fearing for their lives want more powerful government.

This is not rocket science.

Another unfounded assertion.

People who grow up leading easy lives in good neighborhoods are actually more likely to become "progressives" than libertarians.

BTW, most libertarians advocate for a strictly limited government, not no government at all.
