Also, I should note, I'm not from the US, but I'm damn well sure it effects me too. (I'm posting this because I accidentally typed "Our" in that post-- A shame there isn't an edit function, but I can see why an edit function could sometimes be counter productive.)
Of course, I know this PARTICULAR story is about the UK. I'm speaking in general terms. But the problem extends further than the US as well. Especially with their blatant bullying of everyone else, pushing them around and throwing their weight over them to do their bidding, "Or else".
The revelations and abuses about and by our government lately have been nothing but pure greed, evil, and power-hungry.
The root of the problem has so deeply been etched into the government than nothing short of total, violent revolution could topple it. The powers that be a big headed, egotistical, patronizing assholes who have gone full on mommy-state, and at the same time, only seek to line their own damn pockets with gold.
Unfortunately though, the revolution has taken too long.
And with it, a lot of hope about turning the US into a great nation.
They have too much power now.
Power given to them by their citizens because they weren't constantly vigilant.
At this point, the only thing I'm hoping for is for more exposure to their crimes against humanity, and for the public to humble them enough for them to realise the way they're destroying lives, families, and nations.
Why isn't this guy being put in jail for a tweet like that? I mean, the US is so trigger happy with everything ELSE on the internet. /s
But seriously, though. He only thinks it's dumb because he aired it to a million people and was called out on his bullshit. And he'd be right. But I don't for one second think he actually didn't mean it.
I don't see what voting has to do with it. Voting is a technicality. Romney would have been much worse than Obama, and it's practically impossible to vote anyone but the "chosen two" candidates in. If I were in america, I'd have still voted for Obama, because of the whole "Lesser of two evils" thing.
That being said, he is still a pile of horseshit as a president.
