4. Red herring.

No one said "disarm unilaterally." Go ahead and collect money. Fight for more seats. But never stop fighting for the necessary change. There is a lot of sentiment out there for money out of politics. It needs to be encouraged and mobilized. Those voters should be catered to! There is also money out there for money out of politics, at least until the goal is achieved. The "unrealistic" happens because people fight for it. Gay rights were also unrealistic quite recently. Every democratic and human rights achievement that people fought for and finally gained started out as "unrealistic," with someone always there to find excuses why we shouldn't bother.
