To Democrat voters

Ive been up all night here in England, watching the results come in with increasing despair...

I just wanted to say that all of you on the board who voted Democrat have my upmost respect, and that you represent the best of your country. You should be proud.

In particular Id like to commend the likes of Volcana (and many others), who in threads too many to mention, have fought the good fight on this board in recent weeks to publish the truth about Bush and co...

My opinions of those of you who voted for Bush, are at this time, unprintable.

I am gutted.

God help America. God help the world.

It's sad, but hey my state California will stay Democratic. It would be nice if all of those who voted Republican should be the only ones sent to war. That would work for me.

Seriously, IMO if Howard Dean or John Edwards was the Democratic ticket, things would turn out much differently. They both brought energy to the democrats...Kerry did not. It was stupid Iowa's fault, giving Kerry the momentum to win the demo ticket.

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!


Sorana Cirstea - Stefanie Voegele - Michelle Larcher de Brito - Alexandra Dulgheru



Martina I will miss you!!

I second that. Great post.

Democratic americans - you really should be proud of yourselves. You tried your best but the politics of fear really did win out.

Of even more significance, there's this little gap in Graf's resume the size of the hole in the ozone layer: It's called Monica Seles. Was Graf the best female player of all time? She wasn't even the best in the heart of her career.

The sad part is, we're going to have 4 more years of war. And without a doubt, a draft of innocent young men and women going to war to die for no cause.

We'll have 4 more years of no Health Care system.

Four more years of rising prices.

Four more years of outsourced jobs.

And four more years of no medical advancements with stem cell research. (Which is sad, my cousin probably won't live another 4 more years unless this is allowed).

America needs help. But this is one American, that's leaving America behind. By January I'm moving to either Germany or Italy.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

Thanks for those nice thoughts.

Assuming that Kerry has lost ---- some networks are unwilling to project this yet, but Bush's victory seems likely --- this is a hard defeat to swallow.

I have always had interest in politics, but this is the first election where I actively volunteered. I worked phone banks and traveled to Pennsylvania to do door-to-door canvassing. I just felt that this election was critical. This obviously makes the loss seem even more painful and personal. For a second time, we have fallen short of one crucial state, and by a small margin.

Amid the disappointment/anger/sadness, there are some silver linings to this situation. For the first time in years, there is fully formed, coordinated liberal movement in this country. Thousands voted for the first time ever, and thousands were moved to volunteer. It is a broad coalition -- not just your typical progressive activists, but also "ordinary" moderates. I think that our motivation and determination will only continue to build after this election.

Who proposed the draft?

Not Bush. Oh yeah, it was that DEMOCRAT, Charles Rangle!

BTW, we get it. You're leaving. Bye. Nobody's stopping you. Good riddance.

The message was for democratic voters. Obviously you don't have enough sense to realize that the original poster was not talking to you.
