I think what bothers me the most about the whole thing, is how he won. Not because he was the better man, but because he lied, and lied BIG, and sold that lie.

It's how not only were the majority of Americans deceived, but how they ALLOWED themselves to be deceived.

How, in spite of all the facts, in spite of the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, the average republican vote still believes that Saddam had WMDs. That he was connected to Al Quaeda. That the war was fought for just reasons, and was not a distraction from the war on terrorism, that it was PART of the war on terrorism. In spite of all the evidence, people closed their eyes, stuck their fingers in their ears, and said

"nya nya nya I can't hear you nya nya nya abortion!"

Maybe we deserve this. Maybe it just has to get this bad before someone will do something. Most of those that voted for him will be the ones most hurt. They will feel the brunt of the financial burden, they will see their school budgets cut, their daycare centers closed, their teenage daughters pregnant, their sons dead in wars, and their jobs sent overseas. and they will still wave the Bush flag and claim that he saved us from certain doom. Maybe we deserve this. Them for being willfully blind, and for those of us that know better for not trying hard enough.

And maybe it will get to the point where the rest of the world has to take steps. My only hope then, is that Lovisa will share the secret canadian handshake with me, so that when the revolution comes, my family and I will be spared.
