    But why do I agree with some policies and not other? Well I consider the national interest and my own interest and balance between them.

    However I would emphasise that our Constitution is procedural, whereas yours is ideological, so as long as the procedure is followed, that is, the procedure of how we will disagree, I am happy.
    Then why use appeals to authority? Your position on drug use is clearly based on your own reasoning and not your government's. Your appeal to authority was disingenuous.

As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I'm a fan of the French Revolution, myself. Though the Reign of Terror was overboard, they had the right idea with completely eliminating the aristocracy. Aristocrats rarely give up power willingly.

    This is specious. You simply don't understand what your talking about.

    Yeah, gotta say that this is a particularly restrictive definition of disease. Unless you're going to say cystic fibrosis, or hemophilia are not diseases.

    We were settled after 100 years of aristocratic ascendency and we have inherited the manners and mores of the aristocracy. And in the meantime we have democratised aristocratic values. And interestingly each of our nine aristocratic parliaments gives up power at each election.

    Smile The Brutality and Jealousy of Aristocrats

    Aristocrats are brutal, love the outdoors and cut down tall poppies - just as we do, aristocrats all.
