    The Difference Between The Democrat and Republican "Debate" Over The War On Terrorism:

    Question:

    You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, a dangerous looking man with a huge knife comes around the corner and is running at you while screaming obscenities. In your hand is a .357 Magnum and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do?

    Democrat Answer:

    Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! Does the man look poor or oppressed? Have I ever done anything to him that is inspiring him to attack? Could we run away? What does my wife think? What about the kids? Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand? What does the law say about this situation? Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me? Does he definitely want to kill me or would he just be content to wound me? If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me? This is all so confusing!

    I need to debate this with some friends for a few days to try to come to a conclusion.

    Republican Answer:

    Shoot the son of a *****! Then take your family to a baseball game, eat some hot dogs with apple pie, sing the national anthem, go to church and praise the Lord for one more day of freedom.

    Most of the Republican answer would also be the Libertarian one, I suspect.

    I'll go with the first bit of answer #2.

    Probably just took it away from the angry man with the knife.
