Liberals are Death-prone
There seem to me to be some puzzling inconsistencies in the Liberal mantras. I will try to explain:
1. Pro-Choice Abortion: by Surgical instruments; 1,500,000 deaths per year.
2. Birth Controls: by Condoms, pills, IUDs; Many Millions of blocked conceptions=>deaths.
3. Gun Controls: by a full ban on guns of all types; Perhaps some saved out of the 4,000 gun deaths per year, however, out of over 3,000,000 instances in a year of guns preventing major crimes, such as assault and battery, rape, malicious wounding, and murder, at least 1,000,000 of those people avoided serious injury or death because they had a weapon to defend themselves.
4. Communism: Leftists or "progressives," as they want to hide behind, want all of the trappings of Communism; the government approach that has killed well over 20,000,000 people worldwide, so far, beginning with the USSR, China, Laos, Indonesia and Vietnam.
It is therefore very puzzling why Liberals demand to kill babies or prevent their conception, for an estimated total of perhaps 3 to 5 million lives "lost" each year, then promote Communism with its totals of millions of deaths, and then want to ban defensive weapons from the people for an added 1,000,000 victims (or more) per year of serious injury or death.
Oh, yes, they might have saved perhaps 130 children under 10 from accidental death per year, and of the remainder from 4,000 gun-related deaths per year, perhaps a few of the 11 to 20-year-old criminals in that group would have been unable to get a gun.
The Liberal accounting for what is worthwhile and what is not when multiple millions of lives are at stake is truly puzzling to me. They are FOR issues that cost untold millions of lives each year, yet they are AGAINST an issue that saves at least a million injuries or deaths per year. Go figure!
