Actually in this case, I believe it does. There certainly is a conversation to be had on the pro's/con's of privatized prison systems. But we do have a prison system which acts within the regulations established by our state and federal governments...that is not the case for prisons in most other places.

And as I said in my earlier post, I agree that gay marriage (or the lackthereof) is one of the big exceptions...but to say racism, sexism or discrimination is legitimized or widely accepted in this country is pretty ridiculous.

Like I said before, America certainly isn't perfect, but neither are we anywhere near as troubled as most other countries when it comes to these social issues.
