I would respect Peace Activist more if they ever wore a uniform and at one time went to war. My dad became a peace activist after winning the Silver Star. He saw war first hand and then dedicated his life towards peace. Many peace activist have rarely left the comfort of a college campus. This is the same reason why I could not vote for Bush. Bush, Rumsfield, Cheney...all chicken hawks..Go McCain! Go Kerry!!! Go Gore!!! Mr. Young...where did you serve your country?And you know what? I thought it'd be fun, too. After all, why bother actually to address another's arguments? Let's just dismiss his arguments because he or she has never met some arbitrary and capricious --- or better yet, convenient --- standard for authority?
I would respect abortion advocates more if they ever had an unwanted pregnancy.
I would respect Mothers Against Drunk Driving more if they'd ever had to go somewhere with a load on.
I would respect Teddy Kennedy on employee "rights" more if he'd ever had a real job.
I would respect [Lawmaker A] more if he'd ever practiced law.
I would respect pro-lifers more if they'd ever killed someone.
I'd respect tax advocates more if they'd ever actually paid more in taxes than they consumed.
I'd respect anti-globalization advocates more if they'd ever run a business.
I'd respect public welfare advocates more if they'd ever personally aided someone.
You can play, too!
