Question by phone: Do you think laws that are not consistently enforced are in line with our rights?
Or are de facto impossible to enforce? Like in Canada anal sex is illegal till 21, yet gay marriage is legal at 18. Meaning one law obviously has no effect. So in case where government can not effectively prosecute the criminal should there be no such law at all than?
For example. Instead of chasing illegals, lower taxes and make it a “no passport no service” policy for everything state sponsored.
Answer by Couman I’m not quite sure what you’re asking. But I do think that if a law can’t be, or just isn’t, enforced that’s a very good sign that it shouldn’t exist.
In a way such laws are a violation of our rights, because if they ever are enforced it’s at best random and at worst discriminatory.
Question by Rose: What would happen if we legalized gay marriage?
If I were to write a thesis statement on this paragraph alone, how could I write it without sounding copycatish.
Gay marriage will greatly improve the lives of heterosexuals. It will reduce the number of divorces caused by fraudulent marriages, ensure that orphaned children grow up in stable and loving homes, raise the standard of living for children with gay parents, make neighborhoods safe for families and boost the economies of struggling communities.
Its for an english assignment I’m working on.
( I am aware that gay marriage is legal in certain countries )
Question by Majejida: Why do you think it is so hard for people to comprehend the difference between LEGAL and illegal?
Is it so hard to understand?
Legal-don’t break the laws
Illegal- BREAK the laws.
Should we give “amnesty” to the drug dealer? Even if what he does is illegal?
But being an illegal in the US in CONSTANTLY breaking the law.
Have you checked Mexico’s laws regarding “illegals”?
MY family came here years ago LEGALLY!! They even did something absolutely amazing…they learned the language of this country and didn’t disrespect it by insisting that others learned theirs. Nor did they wave their former country’s flag and/or burn the US flag.
Answer by Sergio D. just because someone broke the law once does not mean they will be bad for the rest of their lives
many americans get traffic tickets everyday. does that make them criminals and illegals? no. they broke the law once and they will get over it.
see, the ends usually justifies the means. if i am going to shoot a bad guy for the sake of saving my life, then it justifies my breaking the law (killing someone) in order to save my life, just as illegal immigrants break the law to save theirs.
you might not like it and america might not either, but those illegal immigrants would rather people hate them than be dead
edit: if one must break the law to survive, then so be it. life is the most important value. if one law stood between me and my life, i would surely break that law in a second. no law is worth more than a human life.
edit: mexico is a corrupt country. that is exacly what the illegal immigrants are trying to escape. their laws are bound to be as corrupt as their leaders. why compare their laws to ours unless to make ours look better?
