One device currently gaining a lot of traction for framing derision of single-issue voting is the war in Iraq and the lives lost therein. Honestly, I have my reservations about how comparable the two are, but in an effort to find common ground with my fellow Americans, I'm willing to let go of my cause if we can simply agree on a way to be sure that we're giving the same consideration to innocent lives in both settings. My modest proposal:
with which to defend themselves from attempts on their lives.
With the adoption of this small measure toward equity, I will gladly forsake the foolishness of my single-issue approach to voting in favor of a more nuanced global perspective, which I'm assured is more intellectually respectable than my current simplistic view.
