What should be illegal and why?
 
Hey everyone, what, if anything, should be illegal and why? Get your libertarian on!

Orifiel Whitedeer 04-09-2011 02:01 PM

Stupidity should be illegal. :D

Reyson 04-09-2011 02:06 PM

Having babies when you know you can't afford to give them a decent life.

Volkrin 04-09-2011 02:09 PM

Laughing loudly and at inappropriate moments in the theater.

Define stupidity.

People who say playing video games is having no life yet they proceed to spend the afternoon watching tv...

Timolas 04-09-2011 02:45 PM

Indoctrination.

Abortion kills 4,000 babies a day in America, most of them minorities. It should be illegal.

Bolvar's Compromise: Your first abortion is provided free of charge by the government in a real hospital within a real operating room. The catch? Your tubes are tied at the same time.

Tubal ligation is reversible (if expensive) should you decide you want to actually raise children in the future, but until you make the financial commitment that proves your aptitude, you have lost the ability to reproduce and kill any more babies.

My guess is this would make the abortion rate plummet in America. I'd prefer to abolish it altogether, but until we have about two decades of solid Republicans in the White House appointing conservative Supreme Court Justices, Roe v. Wade isn't going anywhere.

How many of those 4000 abortions were over 26 weeks old?

Isn't actually having a life, even if it's not the best, better than never having existed at all? I don't know about you, but I'd rather have been born than it never having occurred.

having sex(alone or with two) kills millions of spermcells, does that mean having sex should be illegal too?
I knew you were conservative, but even towards something like that?

Omacron 04-09-2011 04:22 PM

Fat/old women in tight pants.

Saranus 04-09-2011 04:33 PM

High fructose corn syrup should be illegal.

When you don't exist at all, you have no opinion on the matter!

Ashendant 04-09-2011 04:54 PM

Throwing chewed gum at the ground should be illegal(probably is as littering :D)

Omacron 04-09-2011 11:19 PM

Without weird Japanese porn my standup act would be like, 2 minutes long. I need that shit, yo.

Yuber8900 04-09-2011 11:39 PM

That depends on who you ask.

Difference is, those sperm cells haven't fertilised an egg and formed a cluster of reproducing cells that will hopefully form a baby.

But I do exist, and my opinion on the matter is that, typically, a bad existence is preferable to oblivion.

Ask those who are brought up in bad conditions. Would they really rather have never existed?

Life may start at 26 weeks, but your not a human being until you've popped out of your moms vajayjay. Until then you're nothing but a slimy fetus.

No, if death is defined at the moment brain activity stops and is unable to recover(and hence the biological body shuts down), then it's only logical to define the start of animal life in the same way
