    Antifa leaders + organisers should be held legally responsible for the violence and damages of antifa at their rallies.

    Every child under the age of 12 should have free medical care. Period. No money should be spent on anything else till the medical problems of under 12's have been addressed.

    This is absurd. If children under the age of 12 are granted free medical care, other age groups should be as well.

    Think man. We cannot give free health care to everyone. And we certainly cannot give free health care to everyone at the exclusion of all other costs.

    So under 12 is a pragmatic compromise.

    1.) I am not a man. 

    2.) You have yet to explain why we cannot provide free healthcare for everyone. 

    Now, why is it that the taxpayer should *only* fund healthcare for those below 12? Why should other age groups be exempt from the benefits of their money?

    I don't care. It was a figure of speech.

    2.) You have yet to explain why we cannot provide free healthcare for everyone. 

    No I don't. If you don't know why we can't provide free healthcare for everyone, nothing I say will help you.


    Now, why is it that the taxpayer should *only* fund healthcare for those below 12?

    Because it can't do more. You can read right?

    Why should other age groups be exempt from the benefits of their money?

    Their money has more benefits than just healthcare.

    But you are aware of the thread title right? I hope you aren't one of those ultra progressive snowflakes with zero sense of humor.

    The following rule should apply with political public gatherings that turn violent:
    The side which first gets the permit to hold the demonstration should be considered the innocent party if it's unclear who was the instigator in the clashes. In such an event, the second party (the counterdemonstrators) should be held responsible, since their presence is a challenge to the first amendment rights of the first party to assemble peaceably.

    That's not just idiotic, it's legally incorrect. You cannot apply justice in such an openly corrupt manner and call yourself a practitioner of accurate law enforcement.

    The majority of developed countries, including France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia, have tax-funded healthcare. Therefore, why do you consider it to be unfeasible?

    hope you aren't one of those ultra progressive snowflakes with zero sense of humor.

    I am a traditionalist with regard to my social values, and a moderate with regard to my economic viewpoints. There is no valid reason to oppose universal healthcare, especially when it has been continually proven that other countries can operate with such a system successfully.

    Germany and France don't have directly public healthcare, it's the insurance that makes it 'free' and not the direct healthcare providing entity.

    Yes but it's not like the NHS. They fund the insurance companies to pay the poor without demanding as much from them. It's actually what UK should do and what Canada has already begun to turn their 'nhs' equivalent into.

    This isn't wholly accurate. In France, medical care is funded both by the taxpayer and the government. Each citizen contributes to the system through deductions in their salary or social security.

    Once again, this is what is known as a "universal healthcare" system.

    My post opposed nothing. It was for something. You took that to mean it opposed your social justice pet cause of the day.

    I said free health care, not universal health care. The topic said "unpopular". You seem not to like it. Job done.

    There should be a maximum cutoff time for death penalty executions. Say 5 years. At the deadline, the execution is carried out and cannot be stopped except by an act of congress.
