Remember when you were a kid and you saw - or maybe you yourself - picked on the retarded/slow kid? Didn't you feel icky or mean? That's how I feel when I talk about politics, like I'm being mean to or picking on the retarded kid. I wonder how anyone can take the dumpster fire that is the US political sh*t-show seriously. Yet people do, and get very passionate about it. Yeah, I know what politicians do has repercussions on the public but I feel like if you just leave them alone maybe they'll go on vacation 12 months a year. Hopefully.
