As I write this it looks like Ohio is Bush's as well as the election...

It virtually came down to 1 state, was a very close election..

I wonder if the next 4 years will see Bush being as radical in his policies on such a weak mandate as his first term.

I pity democrat Americans and I fear for the world.

I wonder what the reaction is gonna be when the next terrorist attack occurs on US soil.. I wonder if the Republicans will still beleive that their hero is the man to protect them.

I sure as hell wont have as much sympathy for America next time they are attacked. Bush winning the election basically says to the world that the american people approve of Bush's pre-emptive, go it alone and conquer anyone approach to solving conflict - when that attitude comes back to haunt americans, republicans will only have themselves to blame for endorsing a madman.

he'll be even worse, bcuz now he doesnt have to worry about facing another election.

Whoever runs for the Repubs in '08 will have to pay the consequences, but Bush himself has got a blank check now.

That's really not fair. Not everybody who ends up getting killed in such things supports Bush, and even those who do don't deserve to die because of it.

I would have liked to see Kerry win too, but hey, shit happens. That's no reason to say something like this.

Maybe we can impeach him or something. He is soo dumb. A fifth grader would have a higher I.Q. than he would, and he is representing the U.S. I think he will lead to the demise of the US seriously. He showed his true colors in the debate, by how stupid he behaved and his responses were, and people still vote for him. :rolleyes:

Blank check to do whatever he wants to do, and yes that draft will be re-instated. I would like to see all those who voted for him drafted. :lol:

Bush's victory as you have pointed means the triumph of the politics of fear, the victory of the pre-emptive wars, the defeat of the multilateralism, the death of the UN and I am afraid that Terrorism will rise a lot. Osama must be cheering for Bush. ohh gosh, 4 more years of nightmares are coming ahead :scared: :bolt:

The question is who's next? Iran? Syria? North Korea? Cuba? Venezuela? :scared:

Crazy Canuck - I know its a big call, but I stand by it.

After 9/11 I dont think Americans really thought too much about their foreign policies etc and how that affects each individual american - it didnt really concern them.

But after 9/11 americans had to think about where they stood in relation to USA foreign policies - more awareness of the effect of their policies was forced on americans.

So after 3 years of weighing up what is best for the country, americans have decided that bush is the best man for the job - this decision will have consequences that americans will bear the brunt of - and when they ask 'why us'? 'what did we do to deserve this"? - the answer is simple - you re-elected a crazy, right wing, christian crusader and therefore should experience the consequences to that decision.

Obviously I feel for democratic americans, my heart goes out to each one of you. But the collective consciousness decides the outcome and this is a sad day for americans.

Bush has never been required to speak properly when addressing the public. He talks and act like a cowboy and alot of southerners fall for it. :rolleyes: He plays on voters emotions and that's a good quality to have as a politician.

So if somebody decides to drive another plane into NYC and a number of people die, you won't feel much sympathy for them? Because America voted for Bush? Even though NY is largly Dem? :confused:

Yes, the answer is those mutha-fuckin' terrorists. Killem' all!

You have to understand that those who voted for Bush don't think like you. It's always someone else's fault.

Plus, he is a great leader and has proven himself by taking down Saddam.

Czech fan, he's going to be worse this time around. He doesn't have to worry about his approval rating, because he's already sealed the deal for another 4 years. We'll continue to lose more jobs, there will be a draft and you better believe terrorist attacks are on the way.

The only thing I'm happy about, is I'm going to leave the USA, the country I was born in raised in, because I have given up hope on this nation. It's abundantly clear that more people want to support a cruel, vile, evil little lying man, than someone who could do good for this country. And you know how it went in bible times, let them drown in their own sorrows. I only hope a few other Bush haters, like me, can make their way out of the USA. Because those of us that voted for Kerry, won't deserve anything that goes wrong.

You bring up a good point, NY and CA the two largest states are Democrat states. They will be the most likely to get attacked. Hell even DC, where the white house is, is democrat. I feel sorry for those places as they are democrats and good people who will feel the wrath of the blinded Bush Nazi followers. It's too bad, we can't inform Al Queda, that if they plan on cleaning up the USA, why not aim for the White House first!

Al Queda doesn't give a rats ass if you vote dem or replublican. They care that you are American.

Crazy Canuck - Right now Im pretty upset, and your post did make me think.

I wish I could say "to all you Republican voters you deserve whatever bad shit happens to you' - but you bring up a good point.

They dont deserve to die. But I am being honest when I say I wont feel the overwhelming sympathy I felt on 9/11 because they really have given his leadership etc the stamp of approval.

Im just gutted basically and saying stuff I dont really mean :(

I disagree, IMO Al Qaeda will be more than happy if Bush wins. The likes of Osama Bin-Laden proliferates as a reaction to somebody like Bush or Sharon in Israel, and viceversa.
The history is plenty of examples about this: in the times of the crusades the extremist muslims appeared as a reaction to the extremist christians.

you yourself are saying that republicans instill fear in voters... but you're doing the exact same thing. you're trying to use the "terrorists hate bush more" thing to make people want kerry to win.

hypocrisy...

That's very harsh. Bush is a moron and Dick Cheney makes me :scared: but they are human beings and no one deserves to die.

I understand you being upset though and it does suck because I think Bush will lead America down a dark path. But the good thing about a democratic country is that no leader is permanent. Voters can always turn the tide in the next election.

Mind you, republicans have been caught using the silly logic on this board as well ;) Insisting that they will vote for themselves and not worry what anybody else thinks and then insisting that a "vote for Johny Kerry is a vote for Osama" and other such rubbish. :p Either they aren't concerned about outside forces when they vote or they are :angel:

Yes, after we have 4 more years. I plan to move and give up my citizenship. I'd prefer to not be American at all, and have similar that share my view in this.

But I still say within 2 years, George W Bush will be assasinated. Not by me, I wouldn't waste my time on him. But some nutjob will. And I'd bet my bottom dollar it's going to be an American that does it. So they can't blame that on me, I won't be here, and I sure as hell won't be American :wavey:

Ok that would be horrible if that happend. I loath the man but he is a father and a husband and that would be tragic.

Plus if that happend I'm sure Republicans would pull strings to blame some minority group and then wage war on some country they claim said minority came from.

Although Bush being assassinated might be highly pleasant for billions IMO it won't solve anything. Bush is just a "show monkey". If he is killed another one (Cheney?) as dangerous as him will take his place in the White House.

come now, i have said harsh things about bush myself but i would certainly not wish him dead. if for nothing else then for that fact that a dead maniac is even more dangerous than a live one.
