  •  so the fuck what... (none)
    its been proven once and for all this country will re-elect a war criminal as long as hes got a bible and hes willing to protect "the great white way".

    and needless to say i dont think obama will be protecting "the great white way".  you people have to realize that obama is nothing but a nigger to probably 65% of the country.  kerry is as white as you can get and he couldnt make a dent in the states where protecting "the great white way" really matters.

    if you look at the electoral map it seems the only solution is to secede.  the blue states pay 80% of income tax?  if thats true let bush preside over the backward ass bible totin rednecks south of the mason dixon.  and if you are a dem in a red state and you are offended by this....fuck you!  you fuckers should be slitting your wrists today.  

    call me what you will

    •  wtf? (none)
      Why are you getting pissed off at us??  Why exactly should we "slit our wrists"?

      Don't try to pick fights with us when you've already got a bigger battle on your hands.

      If I were you, I'd be getting my resume together and sending it to NASA for the first Mars colonization.  Meanwhile, the rest of us will work for change here.

      I understand your anger and frustration, and I share it with everyone who has expressed it here.

      But I live in Iowa, in the USA.  I won't be moving to a Blue State because I think life will somehow be better there.  I won't be moving to Canada or Europe or otherwise, simply because of the result of this election.

      •  Right on! (none)
        My first reaction while watching the closeness of returns in Ohio was to turn to my girlfriend, also a far-lefty (dyke, btw) like me, and say, that's it... we're moving! Not to Canada, though... to Ohio!

        I'm sick of all of us lefties sitting around in our coastal population centers and then whining about how we never get enough of the rural vote. We abandoned the rural vote, folks, apparently because we'd all rather live somewhere where we never have to come into contact with people who disagree with us. Don't get me wrong, I'm guilty of this too... you don't see me living right now in my rightwing corn-growing hometown. But for Dog's sake, we can't all just keep running forever.

        At some point, you've gotta turn around and fight, hold your damned ground. Say, shit, this is my home, and no rightwing bigotted fuck is gonna run me out of it.

        Instead, we're all talking about moving to Canada. I'll consider that, folks, when things are far more dire than they are right now. While there's a teensy shred of hope, I'll be right here duking this out.

        We've got a lot of work to do. In the "red states" and the "blue" ones.
