i've never gotten involved in politics much at all. in fact, usually, whenever someone starts talking about it, my eyes immediately glaze over and my mind starts humming 'i can't hear you i can't hear you' to the tune of 'mary had a little lamb'.

but this election.... egads. things are getting ugly and horrific. our government, from everything i read, is threatening another terrorist attack on us, if we vote for kerry. that, to me, is a threat. that, to me, makes it sound more like a dictatorship than a democracy. 'do as we tell you, or you will be smited!'

after dealing with all of the unemployment of the last few years, of dealing with dropped sales because people can't afford to go out and shop, of hearing accusation after accusation towards other countries, after seeing country after country either come to hate us, or get in trouble for assisting us...

i just want to shake everyone and scream 'THE LAST FOUR YEARS OBVIOUSLY HAVEN'T WORKED OUT!!!! IT'S TIME TO TRY SOMETHING NEW!!!!'

i mean, the definition of insanity is 'continuing the same action and expecting a different reaction', isn't it!?

grah.

That's exactly what it means, Aub. It's fear-mongering at its most blatant. Between that and the Bush administration's chronic lying, it's a wonder there hasn't even been more of an uproar.

And the sad thing is that now the election is over and the inaugural speach given, everyone seems perfectly happy to just sit back and let things happen again.

i'm happy that it took me forever to respond to these, because it's reminding me what frustrated me so much back then. i've been becoming complacent myself.

and i still feel the election was rigged.
