Oh wait, you already are.

If y'all don't re-elect Obama, it's quite possible we're going to be completely screwed. Not that I think he's necessarily going to put a stop to this (because so far I haven't seen sh!t to say he can), but if one of those GOP assholes gets in then it'll that much easier for them to blatantly ignore your Constitution and do whatever they goddamn feel like.

I'm not American. I'd maybe like to live there one day, but right now this doesn't affect me. But it will, even if I don't move to the Land of the (ostensibly) Free. Because the thing is, the US stance on things like civil rights doesn't just affect Americans: it affects everyone. Whether you guys like it or not, a lot of other nations - not just little nations, either - look to your policies as the benchmark for their own. I'm not saying Australia's going to throw over our admittedly not-too-shabby Medicare system to follow in America's footprints (forcing people to buy insurance is just stupid, I mean come on, really), but when your stupid-ass politicians say shit like "abortion for any reason at any stage is wrong!", our stupid-ass politicians listen. And take notes.

So...yeah, IDK. I may rant a little more later...I've got FEELINGS today. But there should a post with some pictures and videos of KITTIES \o/ coming soon, just to temper the rage.
