The way I see it is every time something happens someone whats to pass a new law.
Before you know there is so many laws that you don't know if you are breaking any or not. Right now as I speak this country has lost its freedom or close to it. A lot of people don't know if you get in a fight with your wife or husband and family(brother ,sister,father,etc) you get a domestic ,you will loss your right to own a fire arm for life.Making you fell like a criminal for life. For a ex sample,You and your wife get in to a fight both of you start yelling and getting into each others face .so one of you pushes the other one away and they hit the floor ,no one gets hurt .But some one calls the cop because of the yelling ,Law is if the cops get called for a domestic some one has to go to jail. Now theirs a charge .
And it seems like punishments are getting ,tougher and tougher, Like the story of a 12 year old boy thats facing 18 months for pulling something off a girls head ,to me this is out of hand , A good paddle on the butt would do the trick,not 18 months ,and speaking of paddle not letting parents spank their kids any more was one big mistake that put power in the child's hands to get a way with a lot and to become very disrespectful .There is a difference between spanking and beating your kids ,A parent that beats their kids usually does it for no reason because their mad or frustrated with something , A parent that spanks their kid does it to show that their is consequences to their actions to hope that they learn from their mistakes .
If you start taking to many freedoms away and dictating the way people live their lives to much , this will make people feel less in control with their lives and make them fell like they can't do anything with out getting in trouble ,(walking on egg shells) ,and with strict punishments with long prison time ,A lot of people will loss the will to live and keep going on. And loss their care for any thing ,this might bring kaos and unrest, People will kill and die before they go to jail , production will go down ,because of loss of moral ,Life will no longer really fell worth living , So people will start doing things and breaking the law to gain that senseof freedom back ,And when they get caught it might start being trouble bringing people in . It turns into a battle between cops and robbers.Many people might loss their lives. If people new they were going to jail for a long time for minor stuff ,do you think for one minite they won't go with out a fight. When they cracked down one kids smoking ,more kids smoked.
When people live with a full sense of freedom they usuallymake smarter decisions ,when someone always tells you what to do people will feel they want to do the opposite .The best way is to let people make mistakes and learn on there own and make there own decisions . If you don't like what someone is doing and its not efecting any one leave it alone . You cant control peoples lives. All laws should be in reason that don't effect ones ability to be free or make choices . Worry more about what you do and your life more than other people.You don't have to be apart of their lives if you don't like there life style.
This county seems like it has became what it once fought to be free from and claimed it's independents from. High taxes and a dictatorship.To many what you can and can't do . Iraq fell so quick because it had no pride and was a dictatorship.We need to bring pride back in to this country .And all stand tall and free.
