Hmm. So basically, conservatives defend the innocent, and they reserve their violence for the guilty. Which is, apparently, something some people on the left cannot fathom. They find it illogical. I suppose then, the left must prefer to defend the guilty, and they reserve their violence for the innocent. Let me think about that for a moment... Isn't that exactly what they do?
Personally I'm dead against torture regardless of the subject's guilt, it's barbaric and of little value as an information gathering tool. It is however a great propaganda tool... for your enemies.
And yes, plenty of innocent people do die in war, and that's a tragedy, but the goal is not to kill innocent people. The goal of capital punishment is not to kill innocent people either.
But every single victim of abortion is a truly innocent person, someone who has literally never done anything wrong.
To say it's okay to kill people who you know are innocent because it's okay to punish criminals or fight enemies is a truly repugnant argument.
I know that's not your position, but I just thought I'd clarify where I stand on that.
Kick the enemy's ass.
Protect the innocent.
What's your problem McLie?
