One who voices his or her opinion over issues
they feel strongly about or disagree with.
Thomas Jefferson once
said, "Dissent is the pinnacle of patriotism." To be completely
honest, I hold higher regard
for Thomas Jefferson than for Dubya and people on Urban Dictionary who claim that protest equals "taking advantage
of freedom" and degradation of America.
Antiwar Protester: Dude, why is marijuana illegal? What's wrong with
gay marriage? Wasn't wiretapping without a court warrant explicitly
prohibited in the Federal International Surveillance Act from the days of the Nixon administration? That's fucked up! Let's go protest and try to change what we disagree with
, rather than accepting it like timid sheep!
