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!?

i'm wondering how many people actually DID leave the country?

looking back at all of this, and remembering how much very vocal SUPPORT that kerry had from so many people, especially republicans, i'm still amazed that he lost.

I don't know -- I think the Canadian Govt actually has been pretty uncooperative about letting people emigrate because they don't really want an influx of United Stateians (I can't really say "Americans" cos they're North Americans too) coming into the country.

I'm still amazed he lost but it's really incredible what a well orchestrated smear campaign plus lots of small incidents of vote tampering, intimidation and other shennanigans will do to fix an election.

i also wonder how many people VOTED for that man in office that are currently silently screaming 'WHAT DID I DOOOOO' as different decisions he's making are coming to light.

egads, that man scares me.
