re: #7 Kaessa

I fit in Romney’s “demographic” as well. Middle aged, married, white, grandmother. Everything the Republican party has been saying lately has repulsed me on so many levels. The anti-gay bigotry. The war on women. The absolute cluelessness about how the economy ACTUALLY works.

And now his followers are on the attack. This was on my Facebook feed today, posted by my daughter-in-law, “liked” by my mother-in-law, and argued for by my son.


These people need to BACK THE FUCK AWAY from the television and turn OFF Fox News. It’s been Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi for days on end.


That kind of crazy can’t be un-learned. I hate to think about the possibility of another Civil War, but when that’s the kind of stuff that’s coming out of people’s pie holes, and those people *aren’t* in some kind of institution, I begin to worry. I look back at slavery and shake my head - what would the survivors of Civil War II think? How can that kind of mental poison be dealt with, really? How can people be so heartsick with anger and revulsion just because of somebody voting for a “liberal”?

WTF, America? Seriously.
