Domestic issues are real, and symptomatic of why our Authoritarian views don't work. We should be promoting liberty not spitting on liberty of minority groups like gays. We had a huge hand in creating ISIS, which is another indicator of why our Authoritarian views don't work. We should be espousing peace, not training and arming terrorists to attack Syria, only to have them turn on our allies in Iraq. A nutcase group without a nation attacks our homeland and we dive into an endless war of attrition in the middle east. There is nothing to be done in the middle east. Us being there will not end the violence there. Us being there will only increase the odds of them hating us and coming here with a nuke on a ship into NY harbor. There is plenty of good news, but apparently that's not what you want to talk about.
