GOP NATIONAL platform draft declares pornography 'public health crisis'

Original post made by Louis, Menlo Park: Belle Haven, on Jul 12, 2016

7,239 people killed by porn this year already.

Whoops - 7,239 people killed by GUNS this year already.

Yet the GOP thinks porn is the bigger public health threat than the guns that killed 7,239 Americans.

You decide. Vote Trump, or vote for sanity.

One in five Americans who die each year die from obesity. That is over 500,000 people a year die from obesity. So for every person who dies at the hand of a gun 70 people die at the hand of a fork. So the Obama Administration needs to outlaw forks immediately in the interest of public safety.

So liberals wise up. It is not the fork that is killing nor is it the gun. Its the people Stupid!!!!

So how many people walk into bars in Cody, Wyoming shooting up the place. The answer is none. Wyoming has very relaxed gun laws and a gun crime rate far lower than California. And Chicago, the city with the strictest gun control laws in the nation has the highest gun crime rate in the country by far. When you outlaw guns only outlaws will have guns.

I saw a television ad today about a woman who was raped on a college campus. She got firearms training and is very proficient with her weapon. The next predator who tries to rape her will get a 38 caliber vasectomy. Good for her. Women should not live in fear. Owning a weapon and knowing how to use it has made that woman secure in her own mind, unafraid to venture out in society.

Dallas police dislike open carry.

Talk to them.

[Part removed. Please make your point without negative characterization of other posters.}

This is about the GOP


that porn is a health hazard while guns are not.

13,286 people were killed in the US by firearms in 2015, zero by porn.

There were 372 mass shootings in the US in 2015, killing 475 people and wounding 1,870.

I do not have stats on the number of dead in mass porn viewings.

This is the platform of the republican party. Ask them about obesity.

A national party platform. A national party led by Donald Trump and his kids.

Deflecting to obesity and other nonsensical topics may be your defense to the clowns that are todays GOP.
