As this seemingly endless election season rattles on toward the day when we can finally, mercifully, cast our votes, many Americans, myself very much included, have developed an ever-deepening fatigue from listening to the constant barrage of finger-pointing, backbiting, and record-questioning. It’s the pits, isn’t it? Taking the high ground and basing things solely on the issues at hand have, for awhile now, taken a backseat to continually driving a wedge between the Left and the Right, two groups who don’t need more reasons to disagree. I’ve recently realized this comes from a very troubling trend in American politics in the last decade or so, and that is to not simply disagree with the opposing side, but to breed vitriol and hate toward them. It’s the same blind despising that sports fans have for their team’s rivals.
North Carolina may have voted against gay marriage, but according to Fox Nation, the President has declared war on marriage!
Do you know what this means?
In order to comply with the new Socialist mandate, all marriages will be deemed invalid unless they are gay marriages. All straight couples must divorce and remarry members of the same sex because that’s how that works. So if you’re a man married to a woman, kiss her goodbye. It’s time for you to shack up with a dude if you want to keep your benefits.
Well I for one will not go quietly. I’ve been preparing for the all out collapse of society for months! I’ve got my shelter stocked up with beef jerky and ammunition, ready to weather the storm! LET’S DO THIS! HALLELUJAH!

I’ve just been informed that allowing people of the same sex to marry each other does not mean that opposite sex couples will be forced to do anything differently. This only means that the president believes same-sex couples are entitled to the same rights as opposite sex couples. Carry on.
