Election angst

I wish it was over already. I hate this waiting. I want Kerry to win, but my consolation to him losing is that this will be even more rope to hang the Republican party. If Bush wins, he's going to make a lot of people look real stupid. A lot of Republicans that supported him have been divided, and this might fracture the Republican party, or at least weaken it. The next four years will make the Iran Contra scandal look tame by comparison. VP Dick Cheney's company Haliburton is totally reaming the US coffers, for instance. We went to war with Afghanistan and Iraq with almost no support, we never caught the guy who sent the suicide bombers, our budget is at a record deficit (after being in a surplus), and people in other countries hate us.

But US citizens still vote for him. I heard because he's "religious and moral." These people are the fine products of a bad education system lenient on the ignorant. Those who studied medieval Europe would know what a "religious leader" is capable of: crusades, inquisitions, and witch-burning. The crusades part has already been done in Iraq. The Inquisitions? Guantanamo Bay and the Patriot Act. Witch burning? Coming soon.

These are becoming the dark ages of the United States.

Then, just like the 50s and early 60s, there will be a huge shift in culture that will lead to another cultural revolution. The 2010s will be something to watch, I am sure.
