It’s kind of weird to me that a plain statement of political beliefs is considered an attack ad. To me it feels like too much of a double-edged sword. Oh America, you’re fascinating.
If I were American, I would vote against the Republicans simply because of this tactic.
Funny how that one little addition… could fail to change a voter’s opinion (regrettably, it works in the opposite direction too).
It seems like it would fail to change someone’s opinion both ways. Kind of a pointless ad.
That’s something I still don’t understand about american politics…
1. How can you call it democracy if there are just two parties?
2. How could there ever be some sort of consensus if, whoever doesn’t think the same as you do, therefore is some sort of avatar of pure evil?
Wouldn’t it be easier to just let both candidates fight to the death and elect the survivor to be president? Seems at least as if that’s the direction it’s going…
Anyway, found your comic via your guest strip on “I am ARG”, read through it all and added it to my list of (now) 24 favourite webcomics.
Keep up the great work!

1. It’s not democracy, except at a local level. We’re a constitutional republic… most republicans don’t realize this (they think we’re a democracy, and that the majority makes the rules… they don’t, that would be bad).
2. There’s not a concensus. because of FPTP voting a lot of the US has to deal with majority rules, and our supreme court’s job is to (try to) stop the majority from stripping the rights of the minority.
There aren’t just “two parties”, Democrat and Republican parties are the most dominant and overshadow any obscure party that runs for the presidency
Wait, is this a real thing?
Good lord, it is. I searched for it and… wow. Your country is messed up.
Don’t blame me, I’m just a poor naive Canadian!
I apologise then. This kind of thing is why I gave up studying politics. I loved the theory and hated the practice.
Yes, here in America we have political such as name calling and pointing out the obvious. It also seems both parties forgot that they are both part of the same country…
*political strategies, I mean.
mmmm yes i think this would be much funnier from your point of view if you actually lived in America, you know where your opinion could influence the election n stuff
also your head remindes me of a big stack of pancakes just laced to the brim with syrup
All I can think of after that last comment is that you are a zombie.

The US is rather silly… intellectual hedonism is still rather uncommon, and it makes me sad.
Also, anti-intellectual society is *horrible*… pity those with brains who live in the south.
Those of us who live in intellectual hotspots in/near the south (e.g. Austin, where I can usually be found) have it pretty good, but the empathy is torture.
Eh. I’m so so on the topic of abortion. I don’t like it, and I don’t like the idea of it. Heck I don’t like the idea of killing ANYTHING, but I understand that it’s needed, and I understand that even if I don’t like abortion , that it doesn’t mean that I should take the option away from people who might be in a life or death- ehhh forget it. This is a comic not a politican discussion. Please, regail me with tails of humor
It seems like everyone who comments on here is against America. Yeah, our politics are a bit messed up but we’re actually a pretty good country and not to mention the most dominant one
Huh… I don’t really care about politics or opinion of Americans and homosexuality or any of that stuff, but it still makes me sad when someone smiles that someone’s supporting abortion. Just because they haven’t left the womb doesn’t make them not human. I’m preparing for the hate, but I think that people are still people, even if they haven’t been born yet. I like this comic, and I agree with a lot that it’s saying. But I don’t see why people consider abortion something positive.
It’s not that people think killing babies is a good thing, they just thing it is a good thing that people have the option to make their own decisions and have access to safe, reliable procedures, instead of endangering themselves with a desperate attempt with a coat hanger.
Thankfully, support gay marriage seems to be every so slightly above 50% in the arena of public opinion in the U.S., and with Pennsylvania, not only is all of New England a gay marriage zone, that also means half of Americans live in a gay marriage state (finally). Hopefully the matter will be resolved before too long and if I ever get married I won’t have to worry about what would happen to things like custody or visitation rights if I ever moved.
