The Power of Nightmares



More relevant than it has been in years.

Remember when Americans used to take pride in this idea?



Now if a politician refuses to discuss international terrorism at every single event he or she is seen to be weak...

What's actually become weak is the public... we're petrified by generalised fear, terrorised by nightmarish visions of death sold by politicians and the media and worst of all, we assume this is what is the best for our nation...

You know who needs to carpet bomb Syria? A coward. You know who needs a gun to feel safe? A coward. You know who bases their vote on a candidates terrorism policies? A coward.

Toughen up America, or else you're gonna be fucked.

Base your vote on for what you want for your future, not what you're scared of. Don't let the cowards around you control you with fear.
