Re: This just reminds me why we are this way....
Not like the USA government? Did you hear about of the Bill of Rights?
The USA government infringes the Geneva Convention (http://www.unhchr.ch/html/menu3/b/91.htm) with taliban war prisoners... Did you hear about? This are human rights... But the right to take guns with you is not a Universal Human Right.
If it weren't for that, the government of the US might feel it had the right to track you down and KILL YOU for critizing it. But, it doesn't. It doesn't need to, it doesn't want to.
OK. So the USA Government hadn't ever killed nobody for it's opinion (http://www.korpios.org/resurgent/CIAtimeline.html)? Did you hear about Che Guevara (killed by CIA), or Salvador Allende (killed by chilean people supported by the CIA), or Monseņor Romero killed in El Salvador with the money (an the order) of USA government?
If the citizens of the country are dissatisfied with our governemt, we have the constitutional right to disband it and create a new one. We haven't needed to yet, we just vote in the next election.
OK. So USA people discovered the DEMOCRACY? Uffff... You are so smart... Please, don't kill us...
Have you ever read the constitution?
Yes I have... Have you ever read Spanish Constitution (http://www.sispain.org/english/politics/constitu/constitu.html) or The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (http://www1.umn.edu/humanrts/instree/b1udhr.htm)?
I admit, I am an American Citizen who has never been out of the US. But, after reading comments like those, I'm not sure I want to go.
Ok, if you feel the need to go out of your lovely and heavenly country, here you have a map of the world (http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/world_maps/world_pol02.jpg)
I am quite fond of my human rights here, and I know my government will not put the death penalty upon my head without just cause and due process.
Have you heard about the case of Joaquin Jose Martinez (http://web.amnesty.org/802568F7005C4453/0/821AA16E19335B7580256A88005CE614?Open)? A Spanish citizen who had been under sentence of death in Florida for three years... He was declared not guilty in a retrial. If you'd have killed him, he couldn't be again at home...
That is a state issue, not a federal one. Praise the states in which it is illegal, try to pursuade the others to agree with your side, instead of grouping them all as one.
Are you sure? The Federal death penalty (http://www.amnestyusa.org/abolish/federal_death_penalty.html) is not a foregin myth. We (those strange and bad people living outside the USA (http://www.buxeres.com/paridotas/ficheros/americageography.gif)) are not as you could think.
You can remember afghan people killed by USA
Why not? They were innocents killed by USA troops. Did they kill someone, so they deserves to be killed too?
