Democratic nation or savage confederation?
Why should I have to submit to paperwork, waiting periods and sharing personal data with the government before I buy a gun, just because some irresponsible people misuse their firearms?
Well, why should I have to prove my identity when I vote, cash a check or use my credit card, just because some crooks try to pretend they are not who they claim to be?
Why should I have to prove that my car is in safe working order, just because some irresponsible people never maintain their cars' brakes?
Why should I have to submit to body scans before getting on a plane, just because some terrorists want to kill innocent people to make a political point?
Why should I limit how many drinks I enjoy while watching a game with my friends, just because some people aren't good enough drivers to steer their car straight after they have a few?
Why do I have to live in a democratic republic nation where I am expected to prove I am a reasonable citizen and that my behavior will not hurt those around me, when I would rather live in an anarchic, savage, tribal confederation?
Well, I hear property values in Somalia and Afghanistan are dirt cheap right now.
