Subject: [RC]   political posts

If people cannot resist making political posts on ridecamp, I
wish they could at least express their opinion without being
derogatory toward those holding differing opinions.

Opposition to the war is not necessarily a sign of 'weak
mindedness' any more then support of the war is due to
ignorance (and an inability to realize that Ossama Bin Ladin 
from Saddam Hussein= are in fact two different people). 

Intelligent, informed individuals may come to diametrically
opposing  views.  The appropriate response to that is reason,
not insult.  Failing that, it is best to respectfully agree to

If you can only defend your opinion by insulting those who
think otherwise, you make yourself look the fool, not them.
