Comment: Mafia logic.

(See in situ)


Mafia logic.

This poll posed a query devoid of background. What if the following questions preceded the poll's question:

Is the United States' secret drone strike program in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia a result of applying Mafia logic? That is, no courts, no laws, just executive decision: (“He gotta go, go get 'em.” “Ah, boss, we got em!”) Would such 100% trust in one executive be ridiculous? Of course this land of ours runs on checks and balances. 1/3rd trust for the White House, 1/3rd for interpretation (judicial) and 1/3rd for rule of law (legislative) all converging in decisions. Would you accept the “if we don't get 'em now, they gonna kill again” flawed reasoning, or would you prefer to just let the “terror person” step foot in the USA, and then destroy 'em! Do you approve of keeping on policing the world? Schools, roads, factories, public works are all disintegrating, but are we just jerking around the world creating more “terror people?” Is trying to kill a real bad person, and killing many others in the attempt crazy? Does the other 2/3-rds of the constitution's delineation need to aggressively take their responsibilities back?

Now please tell me if you support the United States' secret drone strike program in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia?
