Overnight- presidential election 2004

When I logged into my laptop I was greeted with this message of the day:

In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican.

— H.L. Mencken

How ironic as the current electoral college vote is 254 to 242, leaning toward Bush.

Should Bush win there are many questions to be asked. Some exit polls seem to indicate that people were voting moral issues more so than the economy, Iraq, etc.
Since the moral issue is what people seem to be voting why do they not look to George W Bush and question his morality?

Automated phone calls have been recorded stating “John Kerry will defend gay marriage, vote for John Kerry” letters went out telling people that John Kerry would outlaw the bible. George W Bush told the citizens of the United States, the citizens of the world that he had irrefutable proof that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. William Jefferson Clinton was impeached for lying about a blow job. George W Bush, in the form of the United States military, kills thousands of innocent civilians in Iraq after lying to the world about weapons and lying about Saddam’s connection to Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Ladin, bankrupts the country with his fool-hardy tax cuts and war spending, whores himself out to Haliburton and he is re-elected… that is if the numbers are to be believed and are not changed or updated.
Is it okay to kill as long as the murdered are not US citizens? Is it only murder if it’s an unborn fetus?
The conservative corner is turned. There are two more conservative Senators to add to the column. These Sentators are so conservative that they want to outlaw abortion, period. No exception for the life of the mother, no exception in the cases of rape or incest. Life in danger due to a medical condition with the pregancy? Tough, you die. Period, no exception. Twelve or thirteen years old raped by your brother, cousin, father? Tough, give birth to a daily reminder of your abuse. Physical deformity of your child or even a dead fetus? Let it rot inside you. What’s next? C – Sections outlawed because they are not natural, not giving birth the way God intended?
I cannot even imagine this extreme mentality, but these people have been elected.
Tom Dachle has been defeated by a man so extreme that he does not want someone who is gay or even a single mother to be a teacher, Thune.
Thune is the same guy who wants to outlaw abortion. So, if a woman is a teacher and is raped she has to give birth to that child and then will get fired from her job because she is a single mother.

Abortion, in whatever form, cannot be decided by men. Men do not have the burden of carrying a child, nor do they bear the emotional consequences of terminating a pregnancy, not the way a woman does. As my wife puts it, ‘when men have to put their feet in cold metal stirrups, then they can start making these decisions’. So far, the only man who has ever carried a child has been Arnold Schwartzeneger, and that was only in a movie. Men, husbands and doctors, can only counsel women they cannot and should not tell a woman what to do with her body.
The makeup of the Supreme Court hangs in the balance tonight. There are estimates that at least three justices will be appointed over the next four years. With the direction that George W Bush is heading, the appointed judges will use the ten commandments instead of the Constitution of the United States. That sacred document requires separation of church and state. George W Bush would erode that separation.

Here are the things that are in danger in the Bill of Rights:
First amendment: separation of church and state.
Fourth amendment: unreasonable search and seizure.
The so called Patriot Act allows investigation of anyone without probable cause, without connection to any criminal act merely in relation to “terrorist activities”.
The Digital Millenium Copyright Act gives companies police-like powers without accountability. Record labels or the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) can seize your computer if they think that you have ‘illegal files’ on it, can send letters to your Internet Service Provider, have your web site removed from the World Wide Web and sue you for per song that they claim you are sharing. Bill Clinton signed this bill in 1998, but it is bad law, written by companies for companies against the people.

3:05 am- WI has been called for John Kerry we’re now at 254/252 leaning to Bush.

George W Bush has bankrupted this country. Assuming that we can recover from this my grandchildren will still be paying off this debt long after I’m gone, and my youngest is only 2. He has spent any international goodwill created after 9/11. The rest of the world hates us. He and his family created Osama Bin Ladin, emboldened Sadam Hussein and now he wants us to believe that he is the only one who can ‘defend’ us against the very faces of evil that his dad helped to create.
He refuses to take responsibility for violations of the Geneva Convention committed by US soldiers in Iraq, all the while praising the very members of his cabinet whose heads should be on the chopping block even to the point of telling Rumsfeld, ‘your country owes you a debt of gratitude’. His vice president has ties to Haliburton, a company that has a no bid contract for ‘serving’ us in Iraq.

George, if you want to live your life by the bible try these commandments on for size:
Thou shalt not kill – estimates are at least 100,000 dead Iraqis.
Neither shalt thou steal. – well
Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbor. – by sending Colin Powell to the UN, and giving speechs to the US citizens.
Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbor’s wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbor’s house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox wife, nor his ass, or thing that is thy neighbor’s. – most certainly not his oil.

Whether you believe Osama Bin Ladin or not… and get real, neither he nor any of his ilk have said they hate our freedom… he does have a point regarding Sweden. If they hate freedom, why have they never attacked Sweden? Could it really be that Osama hates our greed, our lust for Middle Eastern oil reserves, our meddling in affairs we have no understanding of, our willingness to support Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Ladin and others in one moment and to let them flounder the next?

Bottom line, I’m not sure what is wrong with the people who voted for W. A recent study concludes that Bush supporters still believe that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, that there were ties to Al Qaeda and Iraq, and that Iraq supported Al Qaeda and was involved in the 9/11/2001 attacks on our country. This despite everything that we have learned otherwise. Again the question has to be asked; are they ignorant, blind, or just stupid?
Do not follow false prophets.
We have seen this before:
Oral Roberts
Jim and Tammy Faye Baker

Blindly following is what leads lemmings to their death.
