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.

not that it helped us.

i still think that something went wonky at the polls. bush supporters may think that's wishful thinking, and that i'm stubborn to admit that we lost, but geez.

there had been too much out there against bush for it to be over -that- easily.

after hearing of all the local stuff that happened about how SO MANY democrats were turned away at the polls because they had registered with one of those people signing people up outside of buildings, who had been republicans. i saw on the news so many of the republicans telling press that they had been told to throw out any democrats that registered.

and i'm sure that if that happened a LOT in washington/oregon, that it happened elsewhere, too.

and wa/or even turned out to be won for kerry.
