Re: Home of the Brave, George that would be you!
Clansman, how I wish GRRM would write some speeches! Or at least answer back to the nonsense that is mainstream media, in a bigger forum.
The Rush Limbaugh thing is just the tip of the iceberg. Many moderates here seem frozen, and conservatives defend or stay silent for the indefensible. The far right get the press, but it is a tiny and much inflated segment of the population. It is like an abuse situation.
I wish people would give a thought to whether or not they want to be part of the Nightwatch or the Goldcloaks. Or are they blurring? Would they follow Ned or Barristan Selmy. Dany and Jon? Or Joffrey and Cersei, Littlefinger and Walder. There doesn't seem to be as much of a propaganda wing in Westeros as there is here. Where are the people who voted? Where are the real silent majority? Maybe people are too busy being Bron to take a stand.
