RE: Election angst...  
There's something so immensely entertaining in the Democrats' outpouring of self-righteous anger and hatred... please, keep it up, I'm sure you have no idea.

The hyperboles! The death threats! The utter indignation at the fact that anyone could possibly, possibly vote the devil incarnate into office! Oh, yes, it's so beautiful and tragic! Do I need to get out the world's tiniest violin? Call the whaaambulance? Or what?

And, please, if you could refrain from threats of fucking Ohio up the ass with any sort of sharp instrument...? I have to live here, you know, and I rather like it. Most of the time.

Though I wouldn't be adverse to moving...

When you can vote for PURE EVIL instead!

... people actually gave you threats? I want threats, damnit. How come no one threatens me? Ah yes, because I live in Iowa.

*shrug*

I'll admit that the Democrats lost, fair and square. I'll accept it, but I don't have to like it.

I'm just upset because I'm actually scared of Bush, and I wasn't scared of Kerry.

People have been saying this for thousands of years, but now it's my turn to say it:

This is the beginning of the end of the world.

I'm moving to Canada.

And I don't begrudge that upset; that's, you know, normal. Of course you don't have to like it. No one has to like it.

This is the beginning of the end of the world.

... but that does seem a little extremist, at least to me. I mean, the world began ending the moment it was formed, in at least one philosophical arena. There's no telling what could happen tomorrow or the next day... and the planet's long overdue for a mass extinction anyway. And, unless there's some solid proof that the end is nigh, it just strikes me as being unnecessarily like crying "DOOM!" every time a major change comes around.

Though I do appreciate that Bush scares you... he scares a number of people. He doesn't scare a number of others.

I'm moving to Canada.

... but if the world is ending, what good would that do? :3 *is just being stupid, pay no mind*

'Cos some of the rest of the world has no idea where Canada is? :D;

*not insulting all Americans, just the dumb tiny minority who don't know where Canada IS for real*

I have total confidence now that a major nuclear weapon will go off sometime in our lifetime. Most likely more than one. The US probably won't throw the first punch, but our generation is going to see some fucked up shit.

it just strikes me as being unnecessarily like crying "DOOM!" every time a major change comes around.

And it's interesting that you say that, because I finally figured out what's wrong with me - I have an irrational fear of change. This is why I'm still in the exact same place I was two and a half years ago.

But the thing that scares me is the fact it hasn't changed, and now it's not going to. I know, I'm overestimating the power of the Democratic party, but the man in the most powerful office in the world seriously believes that Jesus is speaking to him, and that 'God wants him to be president.'

*shiver* And this is the man with his thumb on the trigger...

Oh, yes. He scares me. Not to mention he looks like a dead alien.

Which wasn't much better than Kerry, who looked like a haunted painting. (You know... the paintings with the peepholes in the eyes?)

...

Anyway, I've been doing mucho thinking since I woke up, so I'll go post my real rant about the end result. *grin*

I was vaguely considering moving south to Canada. They do have Coffee Crisp bars. But it's only a 30-minute drive to Windsor anyway.
Although I actually might have to move out of state if I ever want to get married. ::hates on Michigan voting majority::

LOL Thank you. Someone needed to say it.

I think i prefer this to the immense gloating if Kerry had won. Man, customers who came in today were BITCHY and we couldn't figure out why. One of us finally suggested it was because of the election results. People of America, it's 4 fucking years; You're acting like Hitler just set up shop for the next 100. You peer pressured everyone into voting. Bit ya in the ass, huh?

Is it wrong that i still care 0% either way? Eh.
