To me the tsunami has become very symbolic of what is happening in America today.

I am outraged that the real Tsunami is the republicans hold over America. We could see it coming, knew the ramifications, some of us did the chicken little thing 'the sky is falling', many thought we were just crying wolf. Some ran from it to foreign soil, others turned to face it head on and got smacked on their asses. Many succumbed to the wave of media hogwash and voted for them anyways out of terror.

The Republican Tsunami has washed over us, engulfed us and we are now drowning in their slime, crime, insanity and can barely find a foot hold where we can breathe freely.

We are begging to be saved, looking for help outside ourselves as we ponder the debrie. A few people, like Boxer and Tubbs, Jackson Jr, Waters and Lewis are yelling to guide us to the way out of the muck and mire we find ourselves in.

Some of us are hanging on to dear life to an olive branch, a piece of the foundation of democracy, trying to keep our heads above the water of the onslaught of after shocks from the republicans standing on the shore laughing at our plees for fairness.

The republican tsunami has left thousands dead in its wake. Will we let them kill the rest of us?
The relief is slow in coming. It may take years for the real democracy of America to recover its solid footing.

The world is grieving for the millions lost due to the republican tsunami of Nov. 2, 2004.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
