  6. I saw this on Real News..Yes, I am an absolutist.

    For human rights, for no torture, for health care, food, water and shelter and dignity of every human being.

    A “debate” with Dick Cheney would make a psychopathic kindergartner look good.

    You cant legally lock people up for what they might do, peeps…
