I realize everyone else got over this earlier today, but I just got home and still need to vent some. Who's ready for four more years of fear and theocracy? In Cheney's speech today he said the country was ready to continue of the path of hope and optimism, after last week telling us we'd all be radioactive dust if we voted for Kerry. Bush, in his speech, talked about faith, meaning, of course, pushing conservative Christian values onto the entirety of the population and into our laws. The funny thing is, Bush follows Jesus about as well as Osama follows Mohammed. I'm also pissed that soundbites, bigotry and fear-mongering won over considered thought and measured response. No one ever lost an election by underestimating the intelligence of the American electorate, I guess. Soon, I may take blackfox's advice and "chill the **** out". But not today. The country has just voted for more war, more inequality, more debt, and less accountability. 51% of the voters in this election obviously had their heads planted firmly up their asses. I can only hope the Democrats vehemently hold their ground against the swelling tide of intolerance, ignorance and isolationism.
