I think I might make a unique perk list for H. Clinton against G. Johnson against D. Trump. Frankly, I don't really like Johnson, I rather have Sanders. And of course, J. Stein. Frankly, these 3 that I said, they're my least liked so far. Stein and Sanders, woohoo. But Trump is by far the worst.

These aren't negatives, they're positives. If I actually believed Trump was commitedly Pro-Life, it would greatly boost my likeliness to vote for him. However, as with most of Trump's stances, it's hard to tell what he really believes. Will he actually crack down on Abortion? Possibly, quite possibly not. It's probably somewhere below "Build a Wall and make Mexico pay for it" on his to-do list.

The first, maybe you're against abortions, but you should still be against it to not be hypocritic - rape does not justify killing someone, nor at all does incest. And for the second, for any abrotions. Most everyone believes that there should be some exceptions to abortions.

Obviously. And, unpopular as it is, I do not support abortion in cases of rape or incest. I believe Abortion should be an emergency medical procedure that's used to save the mother's life. If both mother and child can come out alive, that is for the better.

That being said. I would sooner support someone who says they will stop some abortions, than someone who says they would not stop any of them.

Most everyone believes that there should be some exceptions to abortions.

I agree, but the times abortion is used should be rare exceptions and not the rule. If it's to preserve the mother, that's fine. If it's because "I don't wanna", that is not fine at all.

It's way too big of a power for the government to be able to force you to take whatever medicine they want you to. Say that they used it to kill off all african americans, or to mass sterilize, or to abort all pregnancies.

Honestly yes this is bad for the economy, but if you support sanders you're obviously not concerned about this.

That's not what vaccines do, axiomatically. And frankly, I'll take the risk of government killing off all African Americans, since that's not what's happening in other countries with vaccinations against illnesses, but it is stopping some faithful nut from infecting and killing everybody with his contagious illness since "it's against one's faith", or to cripple one's children, since "it's against one's faith". And tell me where it's even written in the Book or Reading that vaccines are not allowed? They weren't even founded back then.

Hydraulic cracking is a very hazardous but hard-to-trace deed that could have killed very many folk already, just so that some folk get richer since it's happening.

It's not an issue of faith, and I'm not even opposed to vaccines on principle. All I'm opposed to is forced medication, which is also the case with most people. Only some very fringe religious groups oppose vaccines on religious grounds.

Yes, it does happen. Germany killed millions upon millions of people in the holocaust using forced medication, and this is only one of many examples of governments committing genocides by administering poison to their citizens.

If you don't care about the economic benefits of migrants, then there's honestly no reason to not go with an isolationist immigration policy and just let nobody in.

If it's going to save many lives, do it. I won't let some whiner kill someone with his illnesses, or its children. However, if the illness is not contagious, and if the fellow is only choosing for oneself as a grownup, then yes, vaccines can be denied. A fellow has the right to die, but not the right to kill other folk, in my thought.

Tbh It would be more akin to the government giving you a free car at the expense of getting a quarter inserted into your arm. You should always have the choice to control what the government does to your body, even if it does end up that you also don't get the free car.

In fact, even if it helps everyone else due to the fact that you won't be hitchhiking as much if you just get your own car, it is never justified to be forced to give up your personal freedoms, even in the name of the public good.

Typing the word "banana" on wl forums - Every time someone does this hitler is one step closer to conquering the world from his secret antarctic & moon bases.

Bobbleheads of iron man - These cause water supplies to be poisoned due to their ridiculous nature.


Taking away a quarter of the US oil supply probably won't cause shortages, but it will drive the price of oil up due to us needing to import about 50% more oil than we presently are, and this isn't really too great for america or americans.

It's not as if crippling the economy by getting rid of a quarter of our oil somehow helps people not starve to death in africa. And in fact, since foreign aid is given out as a percentage of the budget, making the country richer actually increases foreign aid and helps these people in need more.

And I'm not joking. These people aren't in poverty by international standards, and I am not meaning to disrespect people who are. However, when you're discussing the United states economy, as we are, it is appropriate to speak in relative terms. Therefore, 14% of americans are in poverty. Not below the international poverty line, as it's likely that even homeless people make more than this. The US government simply defines these people as being in poverty, so that's what I use.

There is scientific backing to this, nutritionists will say the same thing, that this is a definite likelihood.

Also, Synthetic oil is here, it's a real thing that we actually have the technology to create and are creating to some extent. It's just that it hasn't really been enacted on a wide scale due to natural oil being so plentiful. Regardless, there is a practically infinite supply of oil.

Major energy sources and percent share of total U.S. electricity generation in 2015:1

Coal = 33%
Natural gas = 33%
Nuclear = 20%
Hydropower = 6%
Other renewables = 7%
Biomass = 1.6%
Geothermal = 0.4%
Solar = 0.6%
Wind = 4.7%
Petroleum = 1%
Other gases = <1%

Source. Anything can be made "synthetically", but I think we're a long ways from conventional transmutation. Maybe you mean benzene or something.

Are you serious? Power can be stored in batteries. And anyhow, I haven't ever heard of someone being killed by light poisoning. It's well-worth the price in the long-time.



Currently to my knowledge this technology doesn't doesn't exist yet. While it could in the future, it's not practical to switch completely over to solar power with the idea that sometime in the future we may be able to use it at night.

I told you, it's hard to trace. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uti2niW2BRA)


Well as I said, let's not be banning a method that produces a quarter of our oil on "hard to trace" evidence.

No, we wouldn't, I think the article explained, but it's hard to trace. More bad things about GMOs.

Very little testing has been done on GM foods.
genetic engineering is a new field, and long term results are unclear
funding only given to tests which show positive results.


The fact that not much testing has been done (not sure if I actually believe this, but whatever) doesn't really warrant any sort of suspicion. I mean sure there could be some kind of undetectable asymptomatic disease that manifests from eating them, but honestly who cares?

And if you really cared, you would support welfare, and minimal wage, and socialist builds like that.


Welfare disrupts the free market and takes the incentive out of getting a job and actually advancing in the social order. Minimum wages are just a bad idea all around, and are actually harmful to poor people due to companies not wanting to pay 15$ an hour for relatively low skilled labor.

It's not going to make folk in America starve, that was my point.


Having a better economy benefits everyone, and having a worse economy harms everyone. Why would you want to harm everyone when you have the option to help everyone? I just don't understand your position, sorry. Are you just anti-american?

Right, so don't inconvenience folk against their will. And also, I get what you're said, that folk with vaccines won't be affected, but that's not always foolproof. At the very least though, folk shouldn't have the right to cripple their children.


Children are considered to be under the guardianship of their parents until they're eighteen, so this isn't really a big problem.

So you are for vaccines for deathly illnesses, though?


I'm not against any sort of vaccinations, only mandatory vaccinations, a form of forced medication. And no, I'm still not in favor of them for deadly diseases, although some sort of information network for emergencies to encourage people to get vaccinated would definitely be appropriate.

Skimmed it. This process was invented in 1925, and doesn't seem to have been much advancement since then. Anyhow, even if there was a miracle way to make petrol, it would not outweigh the deaths from it.

Currently to my knowledge this technology doesn't doesn't exist yet.


It's existed in modern form since 1800, when Alessandro Volta made the first electric battery.

Well as I said, let's not be banning a method that produces a quarter of our oil on "hard to trace" evidence.


If it's fully able to kill folk, and it's likely it has, faff petrol and economy, save lives instead.

I mean sure there could be some kind of undetectable asymptomatic disease that manifests from eating them, but honestly who cares?


That's not really the big problem, the problem is symptomatic illnesses.

Welfare disrupts the free market and takes the incentive out of getting a job and actually advancing in the social order.


But it does bring folk out of poverty.

Having a better economy benefits everyone, and having a worse economy harms everyone. Why would you want to harm everyone when you have the option to help everyone?


It's something as petty as more money, against folk's lives. Life over money.

Children are considered to be under the guardianship of their parents until they're eighteen, so this isn't really a big problem.


Are you for child abuse?

I'm not against any sort of vaccinations, only mandatory vaccinations, a form of forced medication.


As I said before, you want to ban something related, but doing something fully opposite from bad wieldings, like banning core medicine since core bombs are so bad.
