Rant: When I heard the news that Kerry conceded, my stomach clenched. I could hardly focus at work - I also couldn't stop refreshing other people's blogs. Four more years? Supreme Court Justices last longer than four years. So do laws and constitutional amendments. They can outlast lives!
What on earth are people thinking? How can this country, built on the ideals of freedom, elect a leader who doesn't believe in these ideals? Rebirth of Christianity? Didn't they teach you separation between church and state? As I remember, this religion isn't the best suited for tolerance either (umm.. The Crusades and missionaries?) - how can this leader bring peace to an Islamic part of the world? Better yet, how can he give them freedom when he's taking it away in his own country?
We're no longer voting for the leader of the United States, we're voting for a leader who has power to affect the world.
I propose that we draft all the people who voted for Bush, go fight for your commander in chief, American.
Okay, tomorrow is another day. The sun will still shine. This country is still our country. We have the duty and right to make it better. There will be good days and bad days. The most important thing to remember is to stand for what you believe in. Stand tall, stand proud, keep up the good fight. I know I will.
Hopefully this will be a wake-up call to Democrats.
