The Love You Take...

In reply to: Donald Douglas - American Power: There's Nothing You Can Do That Can't Be Done...:

While you did manage to add one or two more "liberal mean boy/girl" quotes than Hillman did "conservative mean boy/girl" quotes in his post from two months ago--one of the benefits of being the one to reply, for sure--there is no doubt that there are mean boys and girls all across the political spectrum.

To suggest that either of you proved that it is liberal or conservative politics that makes folks mean, however, is just stupid. Assholes are assholes because of nature and nurture, and for the most part, assholes are willing to prove that they're assholes in every facet of their lives... ...including politics, obviously. Trying to make any kind of generalization about a whole category of folks based on a few quotes from individual members of the group is both logically and morally wrong.

Good song with a great message, though... The key to it, I think, is to start within yourself. "The love you take is equal to the love you make," after all...
