Comment: Of course

Of course

I assumed that, this being the Daily Paul, nobody would seriously sport the idea of using force to enforce a moral standard. But I can understand why some would be worried about this, since it is a favorite tactic in our culture to mandate morality, and sometimes we'd have someone who is new to the movement who wouldn't quite understand this principle yet.

This is a topic where I feel that one side has the righteous indignation, the statistics, the testimonies, and so on, and the other side has "but I like it, and you can't stop me." It would be nice to have an actual debate so that those who disagree with me can show me how they do, and we can maybe talk and maybe even understand the other's point of view, even if we disagree.
