What should we call terrorists?


How about the government get out of the business of telling us who is and isn’t married, what is or isn’t a legitimate religion, what is or isn’t a baby, who is and isn’t a terrorist, what is or isn’t Islam?

Why was the federal ban on the death penalty reversed if not the argument that the death penalty was an issue for the individual states to decide?

How about the people stop dragging issues to the federal government to decide for all of us that which really should be left to the individual states to decide?

How about the people fight together against government intervention in what should be our personal lives, create an atmosphere of freedom, fight against the idea of forcing your personal views on the rest of the people, and stop treating the federal government’s blessing as some kind of final argument?

What is the point of states if we the people keep taking everything to the federal government and demanding a federal law for all states to have to follow? Why are we not just the State of America? Why do we not fight together to bring back more power to the states? If you don’t like the laws in your state, try to change them, but you have the choice to move to a state where the laws are more compatible to your values. Instead we the people keep demanding laws to make all states homogeneous, and therefore no state will work for some people’s values.
