23. Here's something that works for me
I tell off every repuke I know, everytime I see them. I used to joke about it while making fun of how stupid they are but recently I've started telling them directly that their acceptance of torture makes me have zero respect for them personally.

Confrontation doesn't work for everyone as I am very comfortable with confronting people. Still, as little as each of us are, keeping quiet is just not acceptable for many of us and it leads to mental problems if we stuff it.

These are huge issues today that cannot be minimized. Things like "privatization" of Social Security directly threatens all of us as does the issue of torture, outing CIA agents, ignoring entire U.S. cities like N.O., killing 1000s of soldiers for lies, rigging elections and the almost countless other crimes.

The only thing that is wrong with you is that you are aware of what's going on. Our current culture hates that.
