    I only believe we are going to be killed by murderers, and that we are going to be raped by rapists, these people are real, and so 'if you want peace, prepare for war,' and 'the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.'

    The deficit is 700 billion dollars a year, which is 22% more than revenues.

    Take income of 100k per year, but you spend 122k per year.

    How is this a 'rich people' problem, given that they are the ones shouldering most of the burden for the 3.3 trillion dollars in revenue anyway, and I include in that almost all income tax from industry, since those people wouldn't have jobs if not for the 'rich people' you seem hellbent against.

    What? You're impugning all law enforcement now? There are bad actors. As I mentioned above, murderers are real, and some of them find their way into careers in law enforcement.

    It has to do with how we're reared.

    Ah....... I see.
    So all Christians are good, and if any does a bad thing then they just were never a Christian...... something like that? In this way, if any among your Church or Creed are bad, then you can just deny that your Church ever does anything bad because any perpetrator never was a Christian.....?

    This could help you to see all outsiders as heathens, thus unholy or worse, which could then give you more freedom in how you treat them? For instance........ do you support death penalties for Capital Crimes?

    Is that about right?

    Isaiah 5:20 "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" That verse appears to FIT the far-left pretty well.

    Yes, as witnessed by Maxine Waters, the new face of the Democratic Party!

    So yiour kind of Christians don't murder but would kill in self righteous judgement, and not only kill, but kill with the utmost torture.

    Yeah..... got that. I'm learning.

    God says to punish criminals swiftly and painfully, and that if you don't (such as America doesn't today), you will have a crime epidemic (such as America does today).

    Restitution for theft. (Amount owed depends on the circumstances of the theft.)

    Corporal punishment for physical (ie, bodily harm) crimes. (Up to forty lashes, and "eye for eye, hand for hand," etc., punishments.)

    Death penalty for capital crimes.

    Torture is never authorized for punishment, nor are prisons, except to hold criminals until their punishment.

    Yeah....... but some Christians cling to some commands from God, but ignore or discount others ...... as they please, it seems.

    Now....... would you say that the idea of returning to your chosen commands from God, presumably capital and corporal punishment, tends to be more of a ring-wing or left-wing opinion. Which, for instance, are you..... right or left wing, politically?

    It is not an "opinion" for Bible believing Christians:

    "Whoever sheds man’s blood, his blood will be shed by man,for God made man in His image" (Gen.9:6).
