No, I just don't believe in one size fits all solutions. People are inherently different.

The conservatives want to deal with trouble makers by laying down strict enforceable rules and punishments. This works for some but not all. The liberals want to give the trouble makers a little extra help, and that works for some but not all.

And I think there are a few trouble makers, whom we would be much better off if we bribed them to go away. I.E. a 20 year free all expense paid trip to Jamaica and all the free pot they can smoke.
