I would say that no one should be required to register for the draft, but assuming a draft continues to exist, then yes. Equal rights means equal responsibilities.

Black Lives Matter Shut Down Sanders Rally submitted by secretsquirrel2 to politics

Black Lives Matter is a joke at this point. They're honestly doing far more harm than good by sowing racial tension and resentment even among people who initially supported their cause.

What's most surprising to me is how readily people engage is such obvious hypocrisy. The same people who decry Russia's ban on "gay propaganda" are pleased to ban "homophobia;" the same people who lament the McCarthy era of bans on communism are happy to ban fascism. The same people who mocked the moral panic about violent video games 10 years ago are quick to join the new moral panic about sexism therein.

I suppose the author is right: people love free speech . . . as long as it agrees with them.

As a non-US voater, can someone please explain to me who Bernie Sanders is, and why he's so awesome? All I ever hear about is Clinton and Trump in my news. submitted by DaBeetus to AskVoat

Why don't you like childhood?

I'm a child. I have access to healthcare through my parents, who even make appointments for me, and they pay for my education as well. Even if I don't work, I'm able to let my parents support me while I find new work. My parents will also support me for a while if I have a child of my own and take care of me for those early years.

Social democratic government treats its citizens like children; it takes your money and gives it back to you "in your best interests," and for every benefit you receive, you lose some commensurate liberty. I believe that as an able-minded adult there is only one person who knows what's in your best interests: you.

Undocumented immigrants sue Texas over state's denial of birth certificates for U.S.-born children submitted by locke-ama-gi to politics

They have a pretty good case for it, legally speaking. The 14th Amendment provides

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

You can make some argument that illegals aren't "subject to the jurisdiction" of the US, but I suspect that's a losing argument, as children born here are indeed subject to almost all laws.

I will add that I don't agree with this rule and that as others have mentioned it doesn't make much sense for a person with no connection to this country other than having passed through a birth canal here to be considered a citizen, but that is the law.
