Poll Results

Our last poll was a bit of a no-brainer...

I asked:

Where do you stand on torture?

And you answered:

Never, under any circumstances. 0 (0%)
Ok, but only for terrorists who know of future attacks. 1 (5%)
Ok, but only for Foreign Nationals. 0 (0%)
Ok, but only with fuzzy cuffs and a safe word. 17 (94%)

No. No No NO!

I realize that you almost all of you have figured it out, but I really wanted to see a unanimous response here.

Let me lay it out for you: civilized people do not torture their captives. Not EVER. Not even if they know where a terrorist attack is going to take place.

Why? Because we have principles. Because we are better than that. Because it's wrong.

I'm sure someone out there will say, "but if you could save millions of lives..." and the answer is still NO. If we abandon our principles due to the situation, then they aren't really principles are they?

It's not your fault, really. The last administration didn't get it either.

(In the lower picture, is he giving that detainee a purple nurple?)
