You know, there is such a thing as a liberal dictator. I wouldn't call Handsome Jack one, but still, "dictator" and "Republican" are not synonyms. Really, Jack's only concerns are that he stays in power and that the people of Pandora do what he says. The only word for that is fascist, and you can find examples of that on both sides of the aisle.
Here we go. A troll topic meant to inflame republicans such as myself. Also a very uninformed opinion as most dictators throughout history have been either essentially socialist, communist, or in the case of WWII Italy, fascist. None of those were all that "republican" as we know the term today. If you wanna talk politics, call CNN. If you actually wanna have a real conversation about the game, hang out a bit. Just chill on the trolling. I know it isn't cool to be 30 and republican but we do exist. And we don't all believe in god (I don't), gay bashing (one of my life long friends is gay and it doesn't bother me one iota), or pro-life (I'm pretty die hard pro-choice). But I do believe in smaller government, less spending, and a stronger military. And it kills me to see Obama and democrats (in my opinion) running the country I love into the ground. Anyway, don't compare me to a video game despot bro. And get informed before you run your mouth. Not all young people think democrats are omnipotent and republicans pure evil. Happy holidays!
