On October 30, Jon Stewart is holding a Rally to Restore Sanity at the National Mall in Washington, DC. I’m doing my part to help by making motivational posters for sane people.
Death to Nobody:
It’s fine to be passionate about your ideals, but when your ideals lead to innocent people’s deaths it might be time to reexamine them.
Abstinence Only Education: The numbers of teenagers getting pregnant and STD’s had been dropping after schools started offering Sex-Ed, then the policy of Abstinence Only Education started making its way into schools and it started to rise again. Killing young people is not good policy.
Healthcare: At least 45,000 people die every year due to not having healthcare. Opponents to national healthcare say we must let these people die or we will turn into a socialist country like Sweden, Norway, and Germany with their robust economies and higher standards of living. No matter how opposed to Socialism you are, is it really worth 45,000 people’s lives a year to stop? Really?
Animal Testing: (You didn’t think I’d leave PETA out?) The only way to test new drugs is to try them on animals first. Naturally the test animals shouldn’t be abused or killed to test meaningless things like cosmetics, but animal testing is needed to save millions of humans.
So whatever your ideals look at the results and see if it will lead to innocent people’s deaths. If they do please reconsider your support for it.
