Did you know there’s an election coming up?! Neither did we! Unfortunately, it seems the GR staff is just a few citizenships and felonies shy of the right to vote. But that doesn’t mean we can’t hammer home the importance of the electoral process. Because whether you know it or not, We The Gamers of America have been living through the worst era the presidency’s ever seen. What - No! Not George W. Bush. That dude’s awesome!

Make your voice heard! It’s up to you to make solid sure shit like this, the following article, doesn’t happen again. Gaming’s had its share of Commander-In-Chiefs, but we think you’ll agree that most of them are a disgrace to office.

Once the streets were hosed free of blood and crushed bone (at tremendous taxpayer expense) the Dudes were honored with a congratulatory Burger Jam attended by the Chief himself for what could be the most patriotic killscreen of all time!
