Our government tortures people. How does that make you feel?
Advertisements [?]
Right here. Right now. In this time we're living in now - our government tortures people.

How does that make you feel?

My emotions run the gamut from the kind grief that makes you sick to barely contained rage. Depends on where my mind is on any given day - the direction my thoughts take. Mostly though, I'm disgusted.
