Double L Posted January 21, 2010 Share Posted January 21, 2010 I feel there should be a current events test because most people under the age of 30 don't know what is going on in the world and is only voting for a candidate because they are with the party they support. We need to stop voting for candidates based on what party they are in. Instead we need to vote for the individual whose ideas we like and who stands for the issues we are concerned about. If you ask me neither Democrats or Republicans are for the American people any more. The Democrats and Republicans are infected with Progressives who don't give a damn about the American people but instead of lining their pockets with money from the lobbyist. It's about time we got those empty suits out of DC and put every day American citizens in DC who will uphold our Constitution, values, and morals of our country. Not some brain dead Liberal/Socialist who wants to ban guns because they "kill" people. Guns don't kill people it's those who are deranged and have mental problems who kill people. It's like blaming the pencil for writing, it takes someone to make the pencil write. The pencil doesn't write on it's own. That is the problem with Liberals and Liberalism they are trying to protect us from ourselves. Look at it this way. American football plays wear protective gear, they think they can play harder but end up injuring themselves. In Australia they don't wear any protective gear and they rarely get hurt. When you start protecting people you make them take bigger risks than if they were not protected at all. It's like seat belts and air bags, sure they save lives but people take unneeded risk and as a result end up hurt or dead. It's like cell phones with people texting and driving. We don't need laws banning texting and driving instead if people used common sense and realized the dangers it wouldn't be a problem but everyone is so caught up in texting they don't concentrate on driving. The cell phones don't kill people the person using it and not paying attention is what kills people. You can ban things all you want but until you focus on the root the problem, the people, things won't change at all. So making new laws regulating this and that is not the way to go. Instead that increases rebellion and people will do it even more. Remember when growing up and our mother's told us not to touch the stove. We did it anyway and as a result we got hurt and learned a lesson or maybe not. But still when you tell someone no your tempting them to do it even more.
