21. Why are you using a "needs" qualifier when discussing the practicing of a civil liberty??

That is very dangerous logic. Would you want someone to use a needs qualifier when talking about our other civil liberties?

How about applying the needs qualifier to the right to free speech, or the right to health care??

Our civil liberties is not like a cheap Chinese buffet, where you can pick over the stuff you like and don't like..

It very much is "all or NOTHING"
