    I just used this in a forum post. What do you say? PS, I'm not looking for approval or disapproval, just thought it would be an interesting poll. :D

    I'm not a Liberal or a Conservative, I'm any American, and things are nuanced.

    My focus is on the philosophy behind shades of grey vs black and white because legally, b&w can refuse to differentiate between significantly different offenses such as perjury about my affair versus perjury about my treason (No Trump assumption or insinuation associated with this post) and how people would judge relative harm and appropriate punishment.

    Of possible interest, My understanding is that Three Strikes Your Out , i.e. Habitual law breaker statutes, became law in 28 States because people felt too much judgement was being applied, allowing people guilty of repeat serious crimes to avoid serious punishment. The ACLU views them as a mistake, among several reasons, that it ties the judges hands in sentencing, does not allow circumstances to be taken into account.

    The reason why I oppose 3 strike is mostly associated with drug abuse and addiction and the huge number of incarcerations in the US based on what should be a medical issue.

    What do you mean by "human standard?" Not being a prick, I honestly don't know.

    Self-reporting will bias this poll towards the "grey" answers.

    How we as a species define and interpret the enforcement of our laws. It is black and white or depending on the circumstances judgement (shades of grey) is allowed. Three strikes is a good example of a black and white interpretation of law enforcement.

    Shouldn't you have an entry for "I'm conservative: Black and white- no variances allowed, 1 strike you're out"? 3 strikes seems so shades-of-grey.
