When the Revolution Comes, I'll Be One of Those Against the Wall

Pointing to this because it's a comment to a many-days-old posting, which means it's ancient history: I'm obviously completely deluded because I think the Democratic candidates for the Presidency and Vice Presidency have more than a handful of brain cells to rub together and that the Republicans' VP candidate is positively dangerous -- just as dangerous as the man currently sitting in the Oval Office.

I said it in my comment there and I'll say it here: I'm not 100% thrilled with the thought of an Obama presidency on economic grounds, but I think that the creeping loss of personal liberty in this country may be slowed by it more than another four years of Imperial Presidency.

It really is a pity that people are so polarized as to believe that there can be only One True Way, and that you are either 100% in agreement with me, or you are The Enemy. But then again, we've seen that in Fandom, which seems to attract more than its fair share of people who are incapable of making fine distinctions, and who live in a binary-state world.
