Borrowed from another forum site:

The Difference Between The Liberal and Conservative "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?

Liberal Answer: Well that's not enough information to answer the question!
Does the man look poor or oppressed by society? Have I ever done anything
to him that is inspiring him to attack? Could we run away? Shouldn't I try to
discuss this with him? What does my wife think? What would the kids think of
me if I hurt him? 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 before I come to a conclu-
sion as to what to do.

Conservative Answer: I blow him into the next zip code.
