    I can think of at least 545 people who fit that description.

    I gave you a concession, I stated that they no longer be under supervision, you didn't address that. Their full debt should be paid and that isn't what leftist are requiring. Government has a right tho levy punishment, we are government.

    Debt? What a disgusting concept. Right? Even worse. Governments don't have rights. They have powers, which should be extremely limited. That was the entire point of the Constitution.

    You don't throw people in prison because they owe some magical debt to society. You throw people in prison to remove them from society. Ideally you limit this to people who cannot function in that society, like murderers, rapists, and thieves. Sadly, a century of progressive infiltration has left us with the vile concept of molding society into some utopian nonsense that's never going to happen by imprisoning people who own things you don't like. And the icing on the cake is that we let the real monsters roam free after a few years, but that's okay, it's not like they can vote.

    Sure, but I'm a reasonable man. We're never going to get rid of the government completely, but it should be as small as possible.

    When you can get a kilo of coke and a belt-fed machine gun off Amazon with free shipping, I'll stop arguing.

    A real good candidate to put on that “mentally unstable” list portion of background checks.

    And a fitting nom de plume.

    One last question, were the founding fathers here today do you really think they would agree with you?

    Also as a supposed capitalist what makes you think anything could be shipped for free?

    Yes, of course. You could buy heroin and machine guns from the Sears catalogue before you people took over.

    I get free shipping all the time. Businesses understand that offering a perk like free shipping is going to make people more likely to order from you than the competition that charges for it. They eat the cost for increased orders because they know in the long run it's going to benefit them, even if they take a bit of a hit on the occasional shipment.

    You think that your products actually ship at no cost, you are not being kept from any mind altering drugs that is for certain .
