Don't let it happen by Insanity-Cake Don't let it happen by Insanity-Cake
I've been really bothered lately by the thought that my rights as an american citizen and woman could be taken away from me by a biased leader. and i'ts a scary thought. what will I do when the government starts telling us what to believe and what out morals should be. what about the next generation? will they have to grow up being force fed biased information? I don't want to live in a world like that.

you do realize that what rights you do have, are worthless without the morals not to abuse them, correct?

strict 'rights' without morals:
Abortion is illegal--->Reason: because it violates right to life
Suicide is legal--->R: Its your life, why should we care. --->Ditto, Voluntary human mutilation/sacrifice.
Polygamy is legal --->R: pursuit of happiness is a right
drinking/marriage/pregnancy before 21/18 is okay with consent--->R: who cares if she 10yrs old, its her life and her parents are okay with it.
Voluntary slavery is back baby!!
NO DRUG LAWS!
Army surplus now includes nuclear warheads.
Public nudity/sex is okay so long as you keep it hygienic for the rest of us--->R: So-long as my 5yr-old doesn't catch an STD, use the park bench/swing set however you want.
Porn movies for kids, starring kids!--->R: ... No comment besides 'yuck!'. 
Human experimentation is okay.
Your property, your rules so long as it doesn't go downwind to far./don't need warning shots.

...All(or at least most) things that might have gone on if your rights were enforced without any guidance from morals. since literally EVEYONE:bulletblue: has a set of Morals they operate by or under, your want is unrealistic unless your in the position to be a tyrant/dictator of your own country. otherwise, in this country at least, no one has that kind of authority. (unless the Koch brothers count;))

:bulletblue: Criminally insane individuals mostly included.

:peace:

YES! REVOKE ALL THE  LAWS BASED OFF OF MORALS! GIVE US ALL THE RIGHTS OF OUR BODIES NO MATTER HOW MUCH IT EFFECTS OTHERS! GIVE ME THE RIGHT TO MURDER. GIVE ME THE RIGHT TO PUBLIC NUDITY. GIVE ME THE RIGHT TO ARSON. GIVE ME THE RIGHT TO NOT PAY TAXES. It is MY BODY, my MONEY, and MY LIFE, ISN'T IT? Doesn't that mean I should HAVE THE RIGHT TO THE ACTIONS? NO MATTER WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES or how I affect the LIVES of PEOPLE!?

Would you murder if there was not a law against it? Is the law the ONLY thing keeping you from murdering?

No. Because there's something called morals and justice. Which the most basic of laws are based off of.

womens rights are more important than religous rights. that should be an unchangeable law.

How about human rights in general? I think men should be included there too.

hahahaha... best post here.

OP, your life is affected by "other people's morals" every day.  You're a daft wanker if you think otherwise.  Nowhere is free and it's incredibly selfish of you to think you know better than anyone else.

You don't seem bright enough to make the distinction so it's probably for the best that you aren't in charge of anything important as you'd likely muck it up.
