48% of my country is depressed today 

As Larry says, "It's over. Let it go." Jon is saying, "Don't complain - organize!" Although the previous post about the wacky voting system is interesting, it's unlikely that any sort of recount or technicality will change the fact that today, the people of the United States of America have voted for George Bush. It was close, but the Americans have chosen Bush. It's a sad day, but in a democracy, you get the politicians you deserve/vote for. This was their chance to change their leader and they have failed. For awhile, many of us thought that they had been conned into voting for Bush - that they didn't know he wanted to be a War President. Many people didn't equate the US policies with the people of America. We thought they had made a mistake. Now US policies = US Citizens. You Americans have my sympathies, but it's still your fault.

Dearest World,
I am sorry about the whole American election thing. I would like to point out that our nation is split and over 48% of American voters worked very hard to keep this from happening.

Dearest America,
I hope you are prepared to loose more of your sons and daughters to this “war on terrorism” because today you solidified its existence for the foreseeable future. I am not saying it would have ended with Bush gone, but the truth is the extremist psycho’s that carry out these attacks on us, love Bush because he is an extremist psycho. Bush’s mere presence as the leader of our country causes most moderate Muslims who like America around the world to quietly side with Muslim extremists. Bush is the wrong choice; we will all see that with history’s memory. However many of us who still defend this nation actively, with the US armed forces, will loose our lives in this “war” and history will forget us.

Four years from now if our Rome is still intact we are going to have to go through a period of recovery both economically (thanks to the ridiculous spending of your president) and will have work unimaginable odds to try and regain any status of legitimacy in the international community.

I grieve for those innocent Americans and others who will be killed in the coming four years based on our votes lack of vision and laziness.

I serve at the pleasure of my country but in this case I must say I serve at the pleasure of those in the country who only made up 48% at the polls.

This system has got to change people and you can’t look to either party to make these changes we have failed because the system we are suppose to be in control of as a people is

1. In the control of those in power

2. A majority of the Americans who went to the polls yesterday have no world view out side of there own interests and are unprepared or equipped to be anything but a religiously self righteous mob.

Doesn’t anyone remember what our country needs?
