Separate opinions from policy - I'm ok with a politician who doesn't think gay couples should be able to adopt, or that organizations should be allowed to have a policy of not adopting out to gay couples, but I don't think there should be a law against gay couples adopting. Do you know how specifically he has come out against it?

Death penalty would be a strike against him.

It's not so much about voting for Gary as it is adding to the support for the LP, which needs to be supported in the political conversation going into 2020 and 2024.... If we ever want to be a voting bloc to contend with, we have to show up and flex some muscle at the voting booth. We need to grow up and stop being so self-defeating...

I get your meaning. I'm more comfortable with a wider range of left- and right-leaning libertarians than perhaps most here.

Although people like to believe there is one definitive libertarianism, there isn't. Beyond a certain point, how much government to have, what's an allowable legal restriction, one's moral stances on divisive issues, etc. are influenced by personality, cultural indoctrination, books read at age 19 and momentary blood pressure level.

At heart, I believe both Gary Johnson and Darrell Castle are decent, smart, honest men who want to remove barriers to individual choice, freedom and ultimately prosperity. I'm good with that. I support the one who's trying harder and actually seems to care about the result of the election.

It's a simple matter to pick out a few out-of-context quotes one disagrees with and brand either of them as unworthy of support.

It's not like either has any chance of winning so your pet issues don't really matter much.

I think Johnson is mostly ok and I want the LP to get ballot access and matching funds so I'm voting LP.

It's the same for me. Castle has some good points, but he didn't really seem to want the job. You've got to go out and campaign, and he spent more time on his weekly webinars than in seriously campaigning for POTUS. Even his "campaign events" were things like "attend church" and "go to a restaurant". He could have done local TV and radio, at the very least. One thing I respect about Johnson is his strong work ethic. He's done up to 20 interviews in a single day.

As president, he really doesn't have much to say about adoptions, only to veto any bill dealing with Federal agencies. Death penalty would only be his pardon ability wrt federal cases. Very unlikely no matter who is president.

I don't know what isidewith says, I haven't seen it. Darrell has said multiple times in interviews that these kinds of things are not federal issues. He believes the only issues the government should deal with are the ones the Constitution specifies.


This next question ties in with drug policy. Do you see a role for the federal government in regulating and/or prohibiting things such as prostitution, gambling, smoking, polygamous relationships or any other activities made by consenting adults?



No I really don’t. The states are free of course to regulate if their people prefer but I see no Constitutional role in such things except possibly to control the spread of pandemic disease or something of that nature.

Thanks, yeah, he doesn't say any of those are federal issues he's just giving his opinion. Ron Paul has been on the same page as Castle on both of the issues you are complaining about, he very likely still is on adoption. By all means write in Ron if you want to, but if you held Ron to the same standards you wouldn't have supported him through much of his career.


Paul stated in August 2007 that at the state level "capital punishment (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital_punishment_in_the_United_States) is a deserving penalty for those who commit crime", but he does not believe that the federal government should use it as a penalty.[189] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_positions_of_Ron_Paul#cite_note-189)
In September 2007, he elaborated:
You know over the years, I’ve held pretty rigid to all my beliefs but I’ve changed my opinion about the death penalty. For federal purposes, I no longer believe in the death penalty. I believed it has been issued unjustly. If you are rich you get away with it. If you’re poor and you’re from the inner city, you’re more likely to be prosecuted and convicted. And today, with the DNA evidences there’s been too many mistakes, so I am now opposed to the federal death penalty.[190] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_positions_of_Ron_Paul#cite_note-RepCandCom-190)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_positions_of_Ron_Paul#LGBT_rights

I don't recall RP's reasoning on that vote, but that analysis isn't 100% accurate. The amendment in question only prohibited funding adoptions for unmarried/unrelated couples:


Description: H.Amdt. 356 — 106th Congress (1999-2000)
Purpose:
An amendment no. 2 printed in H.Rept. 106-263 to prohibit any funding for the joint adoption of a child between individuals who are not related by blood or marriage.
https://www.congress.gov/amendment/106th-congress/house-amendment/356


So it is about funding, this is also somewhat important, because the bill itself that this was an amendment for had money for incentivizing adoptions. This amendment would have prohibited incentivizing (giving extra money away) for unmarried couples to adopt.

Insurrection strategy: Get a good long-distance rifle. You can guess the rest.

Clean the house strategy: Break out the Hoover and go mad.

Castle wants all government out of marriage due to his religious views, he views it as a sacrament, not a states rights issue. Adoption and the death penalty are political issues, so far he has been consistent in saying these kinds of things are up to the states.

Nebraska's legislature recently made headlines when it ended the state's death penalty. Many found it odd that a conservatives-dominated legislature would support ending capital punishment, since conservative politicians have traditionally supported the death penalty. However, an increasing number of conservatives are realizing that the death penalty is inconsistent with both fiscal and social conservatism. These conservatives are joining with libertarians and liberals in a growing anti-death penalty coalition.
It is hard to find a more wasteful and inefficient government program than the death penalty. New Hampshire recently spent over $4 million dollars prosecuting just two death penalty cases, while Jasper County in Texas raised property taxes by seven percent in order to pay for one death penalty case! A Duke University study found that replacing North Carolina's death penalty would save taxpayers approximately $22 million dollars in just two years.
Death penalty cases are expensive because sentencing someone to death requires two trials. The first trial determines the accused person's guilt, while the second trial determines if the convicted individual "deserves" the death penalty. A death sentence is typically followed by years of appeals, and sometimes the entire case is retried.
Despite all the time and money spent to ensure that no one is wrongly executed, the system is hardly foolproof. Since 1973, one out of every ten individuals sentenced to death has been released from death row because of evidence discovered after conviction.

View Cartoon (http://townhall.com/political-cartoons/2016/10/11/145358)


The increased use of DNA evidence has made it easier to clear the innocent and identify the guilty. However, DNA evidence is not a 100 percent guarantee of an accurate verdict. DNA evidence is often mishandled or even falsified. Furthermore, DNA evidence is available in only five to 10 percent of criminal cases.
It is not surprising that the government wastes so much time and money on such a flawed system. After all, corruption, waste, and incompetence are common features of government programs ranging from Obamacare to the TSA to public schools to the post office. Given the long history of government failures, why should anyone, especially conservatives who claim to be the biggest skeptics of government, think it is a good idea to entrust government with the power over life and death?
Death penalty supporters try to claim the moral high ground by claiming that the death penalty deters crime. But, if the death penalty is an effective deterrent, why do jurisdictions without the death penalty have a lower crime rate than jurisdictions with the death penalty? And why did a 2009 survey find that the majority of American police chiefs consider the death penalty the least effective way to reduce violent crime?
As strong as the practical arguments against the death penalty are, the moral case is much stronger. Since it is impossible to develop an error-free death penalty system, those who support the death penalty are embracing the idea that the government should be able to execute innocent people for the "greater good." The idea that the government should be able to force individuals to sacrifice their right to life for imaginary gains in personal safety is even more dangerous to liberty than the idea that the government should be able to force individuals to sacrifice their property rights for imaginary gains in economic security.
Opposition to allowing the government to take life is also part of a consistent pro-life position. Thus, those of any ideology who oppose abortion or preemptive war should also oppose the death penalty. Until the death penalty is abolished, we will have neither a free nor a moral society.

re death penalty,

It would costs too much? This is because of the anti death penalty people deliberately making it more difficult to administer over the years by disingenuously citing the "cruel and unusual" clause (which was obviously not intended to preclude the death penalty, since the same was ubiquitous at the time of the drafting of the Constitution) in order to require increasingly complex and expensive (and no more human: arguably less humane) methods of execution. In short, a length of rope adequate to hanging a murderer costs about $10. As for legal costs, the appeals allowed a death row inmate are identical to the appeals allowed any criminal whatsoever. They may be excessive (they probably are), but this is not a problem particular to the death sentence.

It's unjust because it's irreversible? Prison is equally irreversible. Time served cannot be unserved.

It looks like in Texas write in votes are actually documented so I think you could best serve your purpose by writing in Darryl Perry. He is running to show displeasure with the libertarian nominee and I think provides a rather unmistakable vote in this manner where voting for Castle may be mistaken as 1) nothing in the event the CP doesn't do statistically better then previous elections or 2) SoCon shed from the GOP over the Trump nomination as the CP party itself seems more suited to these individuals. And voting for Ron may be mistaken that you are an individual who is always going to write in Ron no matter the position the libertarian party candidate takes.

The parent-child relationship (whether the parent is adoptive or natural) isn't contractual; minors cannot contract. Adoption (like all things relating to children or other mental incompetents) is a special case to which the normal rules of libertarian ethics are inapplicable (because those rules presuppose mentally competent adults). Prohibiting gays from adopting children is not at all comparable to (for instance) prohibiting them from forming marriage contracts amongst themselves; the latter would undermine freedom of contract, the former would not.

I'm with you for the first part, it is the prohibiting part that becomes an issue. If your private adoption agency doesn't want to allow gays to adopt from them, wonderful.

No, it is legal. But it isn't justice. Justice isn't about taking from someone what they took, it is about restoring what was taken. The death penalty just provides for two murdered people, one by a private individual and one by the state. If you want justice then you have to work out a way for that person to restore in some measurable way what they took.

and deviants including homosexuals shouldn't be allowed to adopt

Sure you do. Adoption rights are property just like any other. It is a market and they can be bought and sold. For you to interfere in a nonviolent market exchange with violence because it offends your morals makes you no better than any other Leftist.

That's true of any punishment, not just the death penalty. Sometimes, innocent people will be sent to prison. Sometimes, innocent people will be made to pay fines. Etc Since, as you point out, the legal system is fallible, there's no way to totally eliminate this risk. All we can do is try to minimize it. What we cannot do is abolish any punishment which might be applied wrongly, since that would require that we abolish all punishment altogether, which is absurd.

Yes. But, sometimes restitution is made to those individuals when proof of their mal-conviction is made evident. That's kind of hard to do for a dead person. Isn't it?

"And 'best interest of the child' is an incredibly nebulous term. Who decides it? Why do you get to decide what is best for another person's child? You have no right to interfere."

And, with this, you just went all the way down the slippery slope. No more need to worry about the slippery slope: you are already at the bottom of it.

"So nebulous..."

"Who are you to say?"

"Who is anyone to say?"

"One religion / moral system / ethical sensibility is as good and as valid as another."

And that means:

• Child rape
• Child slavery
• Child beating
• Child euthanasia
• Child spoiling

These are all OK. These should all be legal. These all must be permitted. If a known child-beater -- or worse: a known child-spoiler -- wants to adopt, well, "Sure, man, that's groovy. That's like, your path. Who am I to interfere?"

Yes. But, sometimes restitution is made to those individuals when proof of their mal-conviction is made evident. That's kind of hard to do for a dead person. Isn't it?

First, emphasis on sometimes; just because a person can conceivably be compensated for wrongful punishment doesn't mean they will be (and the fact that they might not be compensated doesn't mean that the punishment should be abolished). Second, it's not only the death penatly which is irreversible. As I believed I pointed out to another poster earlier, time served in prison cannot be unserved; monetary compensation hardly undoes the damage (though it helps). And before you say that there should be no prison in a libertarian society, this includes debtor's prison (which, if you're not going to have corporal punishment, would be an unavoidable necessity, since otherwise poor people could commit crimes with impunity)

On a related note, do you believe that the use of lethal force is ever justified? In self-defense, for instance? Won't there sometimes be mistakes, resulting in innocents being killed (wife shoots "burgler" not realizing it was actually her husband coming home late)? Does that mean the use of lethal force in self-defense should be illegal? The odds of a mistake are greater here than in the legal system, wouldn't you say (odds of a person mistaking an innocent for threat in a dark alley greater than jury finding innocent person guilty beyond a reasonable doubt)?


Isn't minimizing the risk of murder not to commit it? Punishment is/should not be the goal. Restitution should be the goal. Rehabilitation should be the goal

The goals should be restitution and deterrence.

I see no place for rehabilitation.


Kids should never be a ward of state.

Umm... why then do we even have "government"? The ONLY possible valid purpose of "government" is to guarantee, defend, and enforce (OH MY GOD! FORCE!!!) human rights. Given this, the question then proceeds to "what does that mean?", which becomes the question of how it shall do so in practical terms. That is, in what specific ways shall "government" defend the rights of men? To me there would be only two: common defense (military), and courts (crimes, torts/equity, contracts).

What other possible valid purpose could there be? Muh roads? Instituting governMENT just for the sake of restricting it doesn't seem to make much sense, does it? Perhaps I have missed some point of reason? Help me.

Yes. If government is instituted then the first process should be to restrict it. This will of course change over time, i.e. a standing Army which should be disbanded and argued for or against will become rote in it's size and scope. Government is the anti-thesis of free men. Open up your computer window and smell the freedom that government has guaranteed, defended and enforced.

And that means:

• Child rape
• Child slavery
• Child beating
• Child euthanasia
• Child spoiling

These are all OK. These should all be legal. These all must be permitted. If a known child-beater -- or worse: a known child-spoiler -- wants to adopt, well, "Sure, man, that's groovy. That's like, your path. Who am I to interfere?"


All of those things are very serious issues. They must not be tolerated. Stopping and/or punishing them is of great importance. Too great to let the state be involved.

Some of you ancaps keep trying to make this a state v anarchy issue, but it's not.

The question is what the law should say re child custody.

....whether that law is enforced by the state or enforced by private defense agencies is beside the point.

The parent-child relationship (whether the parent is adoptive or natural) isn't contractual; minors cannot contract. Adoption (like all things relating to children or other mental incompetents) is a special case to which the normal rules of libertarian ethics are inapplicable (because those rules presuppose mentally competent adults). Prohibiting gays from adopting children is not at all comparable to (for instance) prohibiting them from forming marriage contracts amongst themselves; the latter would undermine freedom of contract, the former would not.

Preventing an individual and an adoption agency from entering into a contracual agreement is indeed prohibiting their freedom of contract. More than anything though this regulation, which is intend to look out for the best interest of the children, could very well have the opposite effect. For instance if there is a shortage of heterosexual couples and a glut of orphans, it would relegate them to living at the orphanage instead of potentially going to a plenty loving home of homosexuals. That is why it is best left in the hands of the adoption agencies, because central decrees usually result in the opposite of their intentions.

How about a convicted child rapist?

"The Texas Tribune obtained lists of uncertified names receiving write-in votes in Travis and Tarrant counties. Officials in Dallas, Bexar and Harris counties could not provide the lists of uncertified write-in candidates because their electronic voting systems do not keep the names. “We mark it as uncertified on our tally sheets but not what it is,” explained Jana Onyon of the Dallas County Elections Department."

Even if we take the most extreme example, the convicted child rapist, the judicial system will have made the decision that this individual is no longer a threat before releasing them, the adoption agency will have made the decision that this individual is a fit parent, and I would trust their decisions having directly dealt with the individual to make a better judgement than a buerocrat. Like with all things, it is better for justice to be served after a violation of rights have occurred. An adoption agency found to frequently place children in destructive or harmful homes should be shut down and operators dealt with, individual cases where someone adopts for harmful reasons should be dealt with individually. And good adoption agencies would look after the children, to make sure they have found a good home, and good and informed people should look to them in finding a child a good home.

Someone (anyone) willing to do an earnest and substantial search for living relatives of the child. Or more likely first, an earnest and substantial search to find if the parents documented who they wanted to care for their child in the case of their death. Someone not willing or capable of doing this should not take custody of a child, so for the instance of the fatal crash someone not willing and capable of doing this and not interested in taking the child to a person/place capable of doing this, they should leave the child at the scene.

If no documentation/living relatives/family friends are found or willing to take care of the child, then the child is 'fair game'. Meaning short of intentionally adopting out or keeping the child with ill intents they should be free to do as they wish. And I think a good reputation would lead to a greater market share.

I do not support a 3rd party interjecting themselves into a family affair unless it is agreed to by the parties in question. I will concede though that having a reasonable 3rd party interject themselves may lead to the better outcome for the child- if we may shallowly define that as the outcome with more opportunities, taken with the assumption that the claimants want custody because they love and want to care for the child . But childhood is just a short part of a persons life and most of the opportunities of life come in adulthood by one's own means. As a 3rd party these 'lost opportunities' do not merit me interjecting myself into the family to declare who gets custody of the child. For more stark difference between desires of the claimants, one wants the child because they love it and want to care for it, and the other for nefarious reasons, the former would be right in defending the child from the latter. But again that would not require a 3rd party to declare who gets custody in advance, custody would be settled by the actions and consequences that stems from the dispute.

By the way, I don't think homosexuality should be an absilute bar to adoption, just a negative factor.

If the only options were a kid being raised by homosexuals or living on the street, the former would obviously be preferable.

Between work, private charity, and the massive welfare state, no parent is unable to feed their child. Some choose not to because they prefer to smoke up the food money, and/or sell the food stamps for the same purpose, and/or just disappear for days on end leaving the kid unattended, etc. That's a very different kind of problem, and throwing more freeshit at it isn't a solution.

Ok, I will pretend I am in the court voting.

Since the two parties are both fighting for custody I assume they both REALLY want the kid. I would prefer the better living conditions, yes. So, assuming that they will be able to support the kid with shelter, food, water, education, and overall nice living conditions, therefore assuming that all conditions are equal, I would give the edge to the relative I suppose. Assuming the kid is not old enough to decide, because if so I would just let him choose.

I assume what you really want to know is if being gay would go into the "living conditions." Well, I think that depends. I think a boy growing up with two moms might not be the best living condition, and vice versa a girl growing up with two fathers. However, I can't say it would affect my decision. If it effects others personal decision, that's fine, but as far as making a law, that's crazy.

I would try not to support a adoption agency that doesn't let gays adopt their kids.

But, to answer your question, I would ask the kid, but assuming he is deemed to young or unstable to decide, I would probably pick the relative.

You have never seen a hungry kid. Never in your life. Trust me.

dude I had to turn my neighbors in because their 12 year old kid was 30 lbs. I fed him until he got sick and called the cops on the pig. Just because you have never gone hungry doesn't mean real Americans aren't going hungry. I have worked at a foodbank, most people that are hungry are too embarrassed to even ask for help. They work paycheck to paycheck and shit hit the fan. There are too many people living paycheck to paycheck to be this ignorant. This is like saying that there aren't too many non violent drug offenders in prison. You are just ignoring a systemic problem that is not going to go away if you sweep it under the rug.

https://www.cdc.gov/growthcharts/data/set1clinical/cj41c021.pdf

He was right smack-dab on the 5th percentile. That means there were, let's see, about 3.75 million out of the 75 million minors in the US who are in an even lower percentile than him.

None of whom are starving.


I fed him until he got sick and called the cops on the pig. And you are very proud of this. Bravo.

As for me, I have had a kid who was well below the first percentile.

If only you were my neighbor! You could have called the cops on me -- the pig I am! -- and saved him by making him sick.

Maybe next time!

I can tell you didn't read the articles. Go back and read them. Then you won't have to ask questions that are already answered.

The question isn't answered, they ignore it, or try to rush it aside.


Nonetheless, I recognize that in a free society, people will do things of which I disapprove. As immoral and degrading as an explicit “baby catalog” would be, I find it even more immoral and degrading that the agents of the state currently will throw people in cages if they are caught giving money to encourage an activity that is perfectly legal if done for free.
In other words, he finds enforcement against the baby trade more troubling than the selling of kids itself.

Especially not when it tends to support the conclusion that a child should be raised by his own father and mother! Disgusting!

We need to focus on the Massive Devastating Famine going on in the USA right now. We need to focus on how all the bad heterosexual bigots are starving their children until they're just 30 pounds and so we need to grab them away so the kind, loving gays can give them ice cream three times a day. We need to focus on Real Issues that Nikcer cares about.

And has decreed that we'd better care about.

You blew this one big time, friend. I couldn't believe ANY chart said a 12 year old kid could weigh 30 lbs. your own chart has the 5th percentile at 30 kilograms, or about 65 lbs. So you may have had a kid below the first percentile, but for a 12 year old to weigh 30 lbs and be OK, they better be about 2 feet tall.

I wish somebody had pointed this out to me sooner. He doesn't think gay couples should be able to adopt and he believes in the death penalty. That's too far for me. Now I wonder who to vote for. Guess I'm gonna have to write in ole Ron Paul

Good. Do you not know anything at all about the Constitution Party and what we stand for? The CP is a far-right Party. It's like you were about to vote for Stein, and then said "I didn't know she was against the death penalty and for abortion on demand!" That's just not how it works.

I think a ban on gay adoption is a bit much, but even (some) gays realize that children are better off with having an actual male and female mother and father. As for the death penalty, I'm against it but I understand why some people are for it. I shed no tears when Jeffrey Dahmer was killed in prison.

I don't understand how a Ron Paul supporter could think adoption was a federal issue. :confused: Maybe adoption of kids from China or Russia. Russia closed the door on U.S. adoption BTW. (Not sure if they re-opened it.)

“Do not be involved with the state in executing criminals or in any way approve the carrying out of the death penalty....

... Believers in the omnipotence of state military power are enthusiastic supporters of the death penalty. It’s strange to me that those who champion best the rights of pre-born are generally the strongest supporters of the death penalty and preventive, that is, aggressive, war. Ironically, those who find the death penalty an affront to life are usually the strongest supporters of abortion. I grant that there certainly is a difference in the life being protected; one is totally innocent—the unborn—and the other usually a person convicted of a horrible crime, like murder or rape. The difference of opinion is usually along the lines of conservative versus liberal.

This is one issue in which my views have shifted in recent years, especially since being elected to Congress. There was a time I simply stated that I supported the death penalty. Now my views are not so clearly defined. I do not support the federal death penalty, but constitutionally I cannot, as a federal official, interfere with the individual states that impose it.

After years spent in Washington, I have become more aware than ever of the government’s ineptness and the likelihood of its making mistakes. I no longer trust the U.S. government to invoke and carry out a death sentence under any conditions. Too many convictions, not necessarily federal, have been found to be in error, but only after years of incarcerating innocent people who later were released on DNA evidence.

Rich people when guilty are rarely found guilty and sentenced to death. Most people believe O. J. Simpson was guilty of murder but went free. This leads to a situation where innocent people without enough money are more likely to get the death penalty while the guilty rich people with good lawyers get off. For me it’s much easier just to eliminate the ultimate penalty and incarcerate the guilty for life—in case later evidence proves a mistaken conviction. The cost of incarceration is likely less than it is for death penalty appeals drawn out not for years but for decades.”

I don't understand how a Ron Paul supporter could agree with Darrell Castle on this.

Did you ever contact Mr. Castle and find out what his actual position is on adoption? I read through the thread, and it doesn't appear you did, but maybe I missed it.

He gives out the following contact email for his campaign manager in some of his videos: joan@castle2016.com
He also has videos of live Facebook Q and As on his Youtube channel. Maybe he'll do another one Q and A and you can ask there.

I'd make sure to try and word the question so that you get what he would do as president about it (if anything) and not just his personal view on the matter.

Like some other posters have said, I'd bet he is personally opposed, but as president wouldn't do anything about it because there is nothing about it in the Constitution, and so he'd leave it up to the sates. However, I admit that I don't know for sure what his position is because the one time I heard him address it, he didn't elaborate, whereas for same sex marriage he made an effort to differentiate between his personal views and how he would act as president. Thus I would not try to encourage people to vote or not vote for him based on this issue without trying to find out his actual stance on it first.

Let us know what you find out.

Well, I'm glad you at least waited a week to spoil the joke, so that it's clear to everyone that niKKKi herself was not the one who noticed, indeed would never have noticed this nor figured this out. Not capable. Do you really believe niKKKi actually weighed the lad?

Ha, ha, ha!

Obviously not. O.I., my friend, that is not the way she operates. This conversation is not about the facts. It's all about the Feelz. She feelz-ed that he was about 30 lbs. She feelz-ed that his parent(s) was(were) mistreating him. She feelz-ed like suddenly stuffing his face until he got sick would be the wise, humane, and helpful thing to do to someone in an actual long-term starvation situation. She almost certainly doesn't actually have any children (other than the ones she temporarily steals), but she feelz she is an expert on children. She feelz-ed like calling the cops on the parents would be the noble thing to do and would lead to bloody terrific consequences! Because she knows best. For everyone. It would set the young man on a whole new successful life path. She feelz that there are starving childrens everywhere in the United States. Behind every corner.

Well I wouldn't want to take your valuable time, so I won't ask any questions, I'll just briefly mention:

1. I agree with Darrell Castle on this.
2. So does your church, Pierz.

Gays ought not to be allowed to corrupt children, much less adopt! Unbelievable that this outrageous travesty could even be considered seriously.

You've got no leg to stand on HH. I have no problem in an individual being punished for harming their children. Purposeful starvation is a legitimate example of someone harming their children. You are the one advocating 'do-gooding' by the government.
