You are reading page 2 of Mental Health Checks. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

It's one thing if WE have a concern about THEM it's another thing if THEY have a concern about US.

Very scary proposition.

After seeing so much news article and all the seemingly unhinged people out there espousing radical beliefs I really think we do have a mental health crisis in the Untied States. I have seen so many reports of people as well as seeing in person how out of touch with reality they, are I really think we need to institute mental health checks on people. I have seen people literally vote for people and issues that harm them. I think we need mental health checks to be allowed to vote in elections. If you cant prove you are not of completely sound mind you should not be allowed to vote. They can too easily be swayed to vote against their own best interests. By voting you are potentially hurting yourself or others. Along with that we really need mental health checks on extremist religions. We all have seen the damage that those religions cause to society as well as individual people. I am not denouncing any one religion, but rather all extremist religions, christian or not. Too many people have been hurt by their views. If you are deemed extreme by a mental health expert, you should not be allowed to worship in those churches. Radical ideas lead to radical events and no one benefits from radicalism.

I really think we need mental health checks on more people and if they are judged to be mentally ill then we need to protect society and themselves from harm by their potential actions.

Enforcing mental health checks as a requirement for voting would be in violation of human rights. I do not agree with you.

Radicalism is also not just a product of religion. It can be found within politics and social groups as well.

Before requiring mental health checks to vote, how about a mental health check to prevent the mentally "unhinged" from becoming president...lol

This is a joke because the op's arguments are a tad comical because they are flawed in countless ways imo.

But the potus one! Um...yeah. But we dont do that!

Never comical. Always flawed.

Does no one see the sarcasm in the OP? Sheesh, don't take everything so personally. I'm sure he isn't REALLY advocating for mental health checks prior to voting. Come on.

I'm willing to say that's possible but you see the thing about sarcasm and humor is it either has to be done well or you know, funny, for it to work.

It's also 100% in line with this poster's previous - how to put this nicely? - rather opinionated views. Maybe they're just on a many-year-long sarcasm run.

I have to respect that a little bit, lol.

But yeah, the majority aren't seeing the humor so to me its a bit of a fail if it was supposed to be sarcasm. Gotta love those long con trolls.

This is one of the posts that all I can say is "What?".

What a radical viewpoint on voting from someone who is condemning radicalism.

I actually am NOT advocating mental health checks for those things in my post.

What I have done is shown the hypocritical view of some posters here. I chose those two things on purpose. They both are protected constitutional rights. There cannot be any means testing for a person to exercise them. now let's talk about another constitutional right. The 2nd amendment. Many people here who said we can't put mental health checks on thise two rights want to do just that to the right to bear arms. I argue that both the right to vote and religion can be far more dangerous than guns....

You cannot put means testing on one right and say it's not doable for another right.

So this was you using AllNurses as a .... testing ground to perform your weird personal biased ... "research" ... to further your pro-gun agenda? That of which the majority of us have never even commented on. This is some devious It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia **** right here.

You ain't right, OP. This is sad and lower than low. I hope you don't treat your patients this way, you know, with a really odd alterior motive veiled in genuine desire to start discourse.

YIKES, ya'll.

What you were trying to do was glaringly obvious to me which is why I waited to respond until you returned with your big reveal.

Along with that we really need mental health checks on extremist religions.

If this yadda, yadda X 4 hadn't already given it away...

This certainly did:

By voting you are potentially hurting yourself or others.

Talk about obvious. Suicide and homicide as discussed in the other thread you recently participated in.

Personally I think it's ridiculous to try to make the case that the damage one mass murderer on a shooting spree can inflict is equivalent the damage one confused voter could possibly do. Confused voters are after all only dangerous when 63 million or so of them manage to congregate at the polls in the same year...
