So should all muslims be killed? And I would encourage ou to study middle eastern history before 9/11. The US was regarded as a great friend to Iran, Iraq, and many other countries that have given us so many problems. We acted like imperialists with Britain to get their oil and the government funded companies took advantage of the people they hired. I really would encourage you to read "All the Shah's Men" by Kinzer. In the 1950's we had a great opportunity for good relations in iran and instead we overthrew their democratically elected leader and placed an extremist leader which sowed the seeds for the Shiites in the future. The leader who was Mossadegh, followed a form of islam that was only violent wen attacked and very tolerant of other religions.
It scares me to think that you think that the muslim faith requires followers to kill all muslim people. That would be like me saying that all Christians should follow the beliefs of the Westboro Baptist church. The roots of islam (Sufiism) in Iran historically have many Zoroastrianism ties and is much more tolerant than you would believe. In fact they just elected a very moderate candidate for prime minister that wants to work with us for peace. We are putting into power and arming branches of Islam that are not tolerant to other faiths at all. Many communities of Christians that have been around since the apostles walked the earth are being wiped out due to our foreign policy.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

Hook, line and sinker for Obama care.
How they likin' dat now?
In regards to drugs (the resident Libertarians center piece), show me one success story where the achiever claims they owe their success to drug and alcohol abuse.
I am not holding my breath.
For drugs the success stories are privately operated prisons, Mexican drug cartels, and coca cola. There are whole economies supported by the incarceration of people for insignificant drug crimes. And as long as the drugs are illegal the Mexican drug cartels will thrive because demand is high and supply is low. If it is legalized, drug cartels Re gone due to free market competition. And coca cola was made popular after folks enjoyed the cocaine buzz they got from it.
Personal liberty and personal responsibility run hand in hand
RK... you need to get high before having this debate with Franco and Mudminnow for it to make any sense Don't forget the munchies!
I guess Doritos falls into the success due to drugs category as well.
I don't know how I exist without drugs or alcohol.
Evidently all the kids I coached and all the time telling them drugs don't make you feel better, just different, self achievement and hard work make you feel better, was all BS, because leftys and want them some blunts!!!!
