litkicks isn't just american. and i think if the first litkicks book had such an american theme, it would do a disservice to what this place is.
i do see what you're saying, but i guess what i don't see is why a book that contains the things that appear here already (without pushing for some theme about the american president) can't make a powerful statement. when you think about what litkicks is... people from all over saying all kinds of things... well, that's pretty amazing, and the fact that this place exists (and will exist in book form in some way in the future) is pretty political. at least in my definition. the personal is political... love, life, buying groceries, whatever.
yes, i think there should be a theme to the book, but maybe something a bit broader.
