I'm burying this here, because I don't want a full-on political row.
But having watched TV coverage of the Iowa caucuses, Republican candidates make me sick to my stomach.

Michele whatsit?
I watched her exit speech and I don't ever expect to hear God mentioned so much again unless I'm eavesdropping on a pretty good whorehouse.
If it'd been a Say God drinking game not even Marion Ravenwood would have walked away from the table.

Okay, socialism as a swearword, I find it odd, but it's a political POV.
But the God thing? Which equals the anti-gay thing? The Christian thing that equals the every man for himself thing?

I honestly find it scary and delusional and at odds with what America purports to stand for.
In a country that separates church and state?

Not up to me to criticise another country's politicians.
Ours are no great shakes.
But I couldn't get by without saying yours are terrifying.

ETA - I could criticise any politicians around the world.
In fact I engage in discussions about European politicians/ Heads of State often on other forums.
But the person who wins the US election calls themself The Leader of the Free World.
So I feel I have a real reason to despair that across the board, the Opposition* are God-botherers and homophobes.

ETA * the party with the most amount of seats in Parliament is called The Opposition.
Just adding because this might not translate in a two party system.

I agree.

The current pool is quite scary. What's even scarier is how many people think they're the end-all be-all antidote to everything that's wrong with this country. See, if'n we hadn't separated God from Politics in the first place...

I'm frightened of and disgusted by them.

Re Doug Stanhope... he just doesn't get it.

As long as the next generation of royalty can come up with women
as neat, or good-looking, or sexy posteriors as Dianne, Kate,
and Kate's sister (respectively), I say keep on keeping on GB.
