Really cranky this morning

Really really cranky. I live in Canada. It's not my election, and it's not my country, but media-wise, you wouldn't know it at the moment.

Anyway: Because I'm cranky, I'm once again advocating the fact that lj-cuts are your friend. Or they're my friend. Honestly, I wouldn't have flisted people if I weren't interested in at least half of what they have to say -- but I'm trimming people who insist I see 100% of what they have to say 100% of the time, because. Well. Look at the subject.

I'm pretty upset about it, too. Why couldn't more of the US realized just how bad four more years with Bush is going to be?

Because their fears have been pandered to: first affirmed (and so heightened) and then their solution asserted (and so bought).

I phrased that badly: first affirmed (and so heightened) then the solution offered (and so validated).

What is bad about putting religion into the administration's policies (when you are a follower and believe that all should follow its rules)?

And what can be bad about a president that gave us a whole $300(!!!) in tax rebates and rolling back of taxes (thereby helping dig the country into the largest debt ever)?

And hey, isn't our administration helping put democracy in countries that never had it before (by force, and don't they just love us for it)?

And isn't this administration about protecting the unborn (while abandoning those already living to reduced chances of overtime pay, affordable housing, health insurance, and even a JOB)?

But you know, Cheney guaranteed that if Kerry took office there WOULD be another terrorist attack on U.S. soil. Apparently some believed it.

I am so very sad.

Thank you both for your replies. My question was more retorical, but you both gave better answers than I could have done on the spot.

A very large part of me really wishes I was living in another country right now. I am not proud of being from the US, or being an "American."

It alwasy bothered me that The US doesn't have a better tag than that, since there are two entire continents of Americans, and by taking the title we just sort of disclude them.

I remember being in Mexico and some one asked where we were from. My friend said she was an american. The guy living in Mexico, said "so am I."

I'm now convinced Cheney is backing the terrorists. How else could he guarantee they'd attack? But that stuff you mentioned is mostly smoke screen -- the Republicans already control what results come from the polls in a few key states. So fewer Americans are to blame than someone might think.
