That being said, I don't think there is a group, party, religion, race, fandom, etc that does not have a small but loud and obnoxious "moron minority" that gives the rest of them a bad name.
Well, I guess part of it comes down to the choices we all have for our quote-unquote "leaders" when it comes to elections (local or otherwise), as they are quite often shining examples of the things the opposite party hates...I think the South Park guys had it right (paraphrasing):
"Voting IS important, but every election since the beginning of time has been between some douche and some turd. They're the only people who suck up enough to get into power in the first place"
Repub with Libertarian leanings here (no, I don't quite understand that statement myself)..And no offense taken. That sort of person is present in EVERY party and other way of thinking. The Insane EW Virus is universal, politically correct, and equal-opportunity. It takes no sides, it knows ALL creeds, nations, and yada yada yada ~_~
