This may get me prosecuted because of the Patriot Act, but I'm to a point that I don't care.
I am thoroughly disappointed that George W. Bush won re-election in yesterday's election. I wouldn't be as depressed if I thought that Bush won a campaign of honor and integrity. But no, he won on a campaign of fear and ignorance. He preyed on the biggest fears of Americans in this post-9/11 world and relied on most of the voting populace knowing even less about the issues than he did (which is saying a lot about the ignorance of Americans in general). This is what dictators do. This makes Bush, and let's face it, the REAL president, Dick Cheney, no different than our enemies.
Personally, I'm hoping to get the hell out of this country knowing these election results. Somehow it strikes me that being located just outside of the epicenter of the regime just isn't a safe place to be.
I hope I can get to Australia...
