It wasn't really a coupterpoint. You crought up evil so that's just
where I decided to put that blurb.

It didn't say it wasn't revenge. Hey, regardless of people's beliefs in
religion, I hold that we are still animals with animalistic instinct. In
the above situation, I would not only use my animalistic instinct to
kill, but I would use my higher consiousness to justify it and defend
it. I never claimed to be perfect! :) BTW, we ALL justify what we do.
Right or wrong is just a matter of opinion. I choose not to randomly
kill (as most do), but I also would choose to kill to protect my family
or self. That is IMO the quickest, cleanest, most just form of justice.

You are reading WAY too much into it. I said that goes for all RIGHTS.
You do not have the right to kill my family, so I do not have to respect
your actions. However, I do feel that one has a right to kill the
prepetrator in that instance, and yes I do respect that right for all.
Some will say I'm bloodthirsty. If that is the case, I would lower my
standards for justification and kill people as I saw fit.
The IRS has become morally corrupted by the enormous power which we in
Congress have unwisely entrusted to it. Too often it acts like a Gestapo
preying upon defenseless citizens.
