94. The argument "but they're much worse" (no question true) is not an argument
I agree with the posters who said that two wrongs don't make a right. As much as it would feel good to throw things at these motherless fucks it doesn't help our cause one bit. It is exactly what the right wing would do to someone like Michael Moore or Bill Clinton--and they would certainly have what was, for them, a very good reason for doing so.

My only exception to this would be if one declares all out war on the government as mentioned in the Constitution when one does not have a government that represents you and the oppression has become enough to justify the violent overthrow of the government if necessary. But that is a very big step and I doubt that few of us are ready to take it.
