It's a sad, sad thing when a politician wins based on his oppression of others. I heard so many people today who were Bush supporters say they voted for him because he is anti gay marriage and anti abortion. "Moral" issues seemed to play a big role in this election. How is it seen as moral to deny loving couples the right to marry? And why are gays so hated anyway with religion as a defense? What about people who get divorced, isn't that a sin? Or someone whose spouse dies and then remarries, doesn't the bible say that is cheating? Or premarital sex, should we outlaw that too because the bible says it is wrong? Wait, judging others, is that not against the teachings of the bible? Oh, but I'm missing one important thing: this is not a country just full of Christians! We do have diversity here, but who cares about those others I suppose?

I'm honestly scared. So many people are just followers. Bush's only defense against Kerry was that he called Kerry a "flip flopper" and inconsistent. Now so many people have been saying that Kerry doesn't know what to think, blah, blah and that they know where Bush stands on the issues. And some people seriously believed the ridiculous accusations like Kerry would take away everyone's bible? It seems like so many people aren't really paying attention to what's going on.

I feel like we're moving back in time instead of moving forward. I have so much more to say, but I've written enough already.

this post is pretty much right in line with the way I'm thinking today. It's good to know that I'm not the only American thinking this way.

and yeah, it is really true what mr. hamilton said "those who stand for nothing fall for anything"...
and yet more quotage:

"My dream is that as the years go by and the world knows more and more of America, it . . . will turn to America for those moral inspirations that lie at the basis of all freedom . . . that America will come into the full light of the day when all shall know that she puts human rights above all other rights, and that her flag is the flag not only of America but of humanity."
Woodrow T. Wilson(28th president of the United States 1856-1924)
"Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it"

"It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge."

"Strength lies not in defense but in attack"

"Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise"

"Any alliance whose purpose is not the intention to wage war is senseless and useless"

"Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the war of the future."

"The victor will never be asked if he told the truth."

"Who says I am not under the special protection of God?"

no, the above are not from any of bush's speeches, but instead from adolf hitler...and no i am not comparing the two men, just pointing out many a man has had strong conviction to turn the world into a oasis of what they view as correct...and many a time this has been backed by so-called morality and force and without compassion for all humankind...
