    It's not even going that far to the fringe. It's the advocates for withdrawal from the United Nations, for distancing the US from International Law and the Convention For Human Rights because they feel that the very existence of these concepts and organisations is "an attack on US sovereignty". Why? Because those organisations call out America on it's death penalty, on the serious questions raised about some of those people sentenced to death. They call out the increasing decline in human rights for those affected by an increasingly powerful internal security apparatus, and the bold-faced lie of a candidate "opposing all forms of torture" by re-classifying what constitutes torture.

    These aren't radical voices out on the fringes of your society. They're elected officials, across all levels of government.

    One is running for President.

    I shall sweep them off their feet with my charm and the irascible twinkle in my eye.

    Then punch you in the face.

    Oh, I know this. It's fucking awful. Did you hear what Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock has said about pregnancy through rape? That it was how God intended? This is the shit that spews out of Republicans' mouths about women's reproductive rights. And what you note, foreign policy is completely skewed and blood-thirsty and twisted.

    So, my American friends, my advice to you would be the sodding obvious - vote with your heads, not your hearts.
    Speak for yourself, I voted for the Green Party.

    I note that the women of Indiana are fucked either way - Donnelly's voting record is firmly anti-abortion in principle, with the concession of incest and rape, but he wants all federal funding cut from Planned Parenthood.

    What a choice. What a fucking choice.

    Ugh.

    You can all come live with me above the Hat Museum. It's cold, but we can keep each other warm and safe.

    While Red Dawn is many things, it is not amazing. A somewhat-beloved awful cult 80s classic, yes, but not 'amazing'.

    Ugh. Just read that the TWTWB film decides to be 'a bit racist' in order to make the viewer hate the invaders in a shorter space of time.

    Red Dawn is my favorite movie!
    I've seen TWTWB, and I don't remember racism. It's been a while though.

    The voting centers here in Indianapolis are always FULL of ancient ass people. It's so weird. When I walked in they all about died.
