You are a fascinating person and anyone who reads your journal for a while will get some culture out of it.

Oh. You're depressed about the elections, not yourself. Well (thinks).

This is the most depressing election in my lifetime. I really am afraid for this country.

hey, that's not encouraging! ;)

What makes them so invincible? I'm so terrified I can hardly breathe right now. (It probably doesn't help that I've been up for 22 hours.)

In the end, regardless of the outcome, what is being shown is what was already known: that the U.S. is heavily divided, and people vote their emotions. Win or lose for Kerry, this means that still half of the country believes not necessarily in the current administration's actions, but instead in the emotional logic presented to justify them.

What is encouraging, then, is the understanding that emotions are best affected by knowledge. Knowledge is best spread when there is not an obvious agenda, such as within the context of a presidential race.

And so from the end of this, there is a place from which to start.

Oops, missed out an essential word!
Can't someone just split the U.S. into three different countries? that'd make me feel better.

My state went Kerry (Oregon), and I voted to Kerry. Almost everyone I know voted for Kerry. It's not much, but it's something. There are so many Kerry supporters. It is so close! *running for the Motrin*

Washington, where I'm from, will no doubt go to Kerry as well. I swear those red counties are creeping across WA in increasing numbers, it's like a rash.

I need to keep reminding myself that probably more than half the country did vote for Kerry, they've not all gone mad over there. ;)

Jon Stewart won't run out of material for four years. And Bush can still fuck up; the bastard could get impeached for, oh, lying about every motherfucking thing.

Oh God YES! I hope they impeach him. This is so depressing to think about since I have seen that Bush probably has it. I think I want to be sick right now and go drink myself in to oblivian

My hopes of possibly moving back to America in 2 or so years have been pretty much dashed. I'm not sure I could convince my other half that living under a tyrannical God-fearing monkey is a sane and viable option for our future.

I've tried twice and even written a few sentances on the subject for you, but none of it sounds right.

The best I can think of now is to point you back at my comments on your earlier post. You are a good person, but killing yourself with worry will not change anything. Whatever the result, you will need to accept it and *move on*. After all, in the greater scheme of things, four years is but an eyeblink.

I know it won't change anything, but I think a moment of mourning is well justified before gathering the strength to push on.

In any case I'm taking a much needed break from politics for awhile. I think we all should.

We will survive this nightmare. And in the end, history will show that he was a horrible president, ruling over a deeply divided country. Things will get worse and in four years people will be so desperate for change that there will be a reversal. All of those 18 year olds will be 22 and hopefully they will realize they NEED to vote this time.

I wish I could be so certain that we will survive, but regardless we need to believe it. I wonder how/if the mood will begin to change when all of our young soldiers return with stories of what it's *really* like over there. Time will tell and I'll continue to do what I can, however seemingly insignificant.

What a disaster. Maybe we're the crazy ones? There would be some comfort in that at least. Someone winning fairly is better than someone winning unfairly though... America deserves what it has voted for.
