It just dawned on me that leaving the country is no longer necessary. My country left me. Many of us (a majority in my opinion) are now living in a foreign land.
Hmmmmmm… A 3% majority does not sound like a resounding victory to me. Granted the Republicans can certainly say that this time W was actually elected, but a “Solid Majoity”? I don’t think so.
But nonetheless they will certainly act that way (see previous post). The USA and the rest of the world are now going to suffer due to W’s “clear vision” of the future.
And just for future reference, the entire country is split:
So, George W. Bush won. And he’s done so by a solid margin. The Democrats’ attempted coup managed to last all of eight hours. Not only is the President the first candidate to win a majority of the vote in a Presidential Election since 1988, but he also won more popular votes than any other candidate in history. The Democrats spent months telling us that high voter turnout would equal a win for them but, as it turns out, when 60% of the electorate showed up at the polls it translated into a Bush lead of nearly four million votes. In short: take that, you sons of bitches.
The Democrats are now talking about how this is a signal that Bush should “bring the country together”. Translated into American, this means “now that you’ve won, you should surrender to us.” The hell with that. We’ve won. Winning means not having to say you’re sorry. Bush already brought a majority of Americans together: they voted for him. He doesn’t need to reach out to them: they need to reach out to him.
This is what you wanted. This is what you got.
Now that a majority of the American people have spoken, I guess it’s War More Years. As the Daily Mirror puts it: How Can 54,054087 People Be So Dumb?
It’s gonna take a while for me to get my head around this. Right now it makes me very angry (and not a little frustrated) to think that I’m surrounded by and associate with such total dunderheads. How in the hell can two people see the same “facts” and come away with two totally different conclusions? I simply do not understand.
For now, I’ve decided to join the Democratic Party. This goes against many of my beliefs but engagement requires such sacrifice.
So be it.
Now that we have validated Bush&Co., their policies, deceipt and wickedness, we (the American people) can no longer distance ourselves from our government. We can no longer say that the government is bad or evil or “It’s not MY fault” while remaining innocent. We are the problem.
Welcome to the brave new world. The rest of the world will now know that whatever America is abroad, it’s the will and desire of the American people. I for one will not be traveling overseas anytime soon.
