Bush back in power
Well, to be frank, that’s us fucked for another four years! George Dubya has been re-elected for another term in the white house after John Kerry threw in the towel earlier this evening. It was an election ‘too close to call’ for the past few weeks as both candidates campaigned furiously and brought out the secret weapons; ex-president Bill Clinton, Bruce Springsteen, Arnold Schwarzengger (spelling anyone?) to name a few.
Kerry may have been an indecisive and even hypocritical possibility for president, but as far as I and millions more were concerned he was certainly the lesser of two evils. If he turned out to be another Mussolini he would have still been the lesser.
What will the next four years bring? With Bush now having even more power than he did in his first term, how worried should we be? Will the next few months see “The War on Terror” jump into overdrive? One can only presume that once he is satisfied that he has killed enough innocent people in Iraq and Afghanistan where will he focus his deranged and misguided efforts to? Northern Ireland? China? Should ETA be quaking in their boots? Once he has the oil his family are so crazed in their demand for, will he mysteriously stop looking for Osama Bin Laden? Shur he’s in for another 4 now, he doesn’t need Bin Ladens help anymore.. Well, until 2008 anyway!
How long is it going to take him to appoint some supreme court judges that lean so far to the left that they have trouble standing up when they get out of bed in the morning? Will homosexuals still have rights in Mr. Bush’s religious democracy? A man that was elected primarily due to religion. I have to wonder, will us praying to the same God that he does actually help us over the coming years?
This really is insanity to the highest degree. I hope all the people out there that voted for Bush live to regret their decision. I, like I imagine many others do at the moment, fear for the safety of the world.
