Sorry guys, as some of you know I'm Mexican and I've been very aware of the news with Donald Trump and everything that's been going on.
How the crap was this guy elected?
He can't have an opinion that differs from yours? He VERY CLEARLY said he would defer to his staff and that they would absolutely follow the law. What's the problem? How is this any different than a President that is pro-life himself, but respects the law of the land and upholds the current standard of "choice"?
Personally, I'm not that far from Trump here. I do believe that in certain cases, torture is effective at getting information that wouldn't ordinarily be gotten. It's not universal, but it is case-by-case. Having said that, just like I am for legalizing pot but do not smoke at all because it is currently illegal in my state, whether I felt it effective or not, I would follow the law.
Add to that, I voted, though not for Trump, and I can honestly tell you, whether the candidate believed "torture was effective or not" was not even in the top 50 reasons why I voted the way I did. Maybe not even Top 100. In fact, I can't even tell you what the position is of the person I voted for.
What's the problem here?
