So let me get this right: a majority of Americans more care less about jobs and more about barring gays from marrying? More Americans are interested in moral values (a dubious term) than in Valerie Plame/Abu Gharib/missing WMD/al Qua Qaa/Enron/Halliburton/Antonin Scalia/ANWAR/tax cuts for the rich/a kazillion dollar deficit/the Clear Skies Initiative and so on, and so on, and so on. I am beginning to believe that President Bush could be re-elected even after being convicted of first-degree murder just as long as he tells those faggots where to go.

The Supreme Court. Iraq. The draft. This is a president who will not shy from making history, and we know history to him means destruction. His version of history will affect us all deeply, and he will leave a remarkably damaging stain on the history of this country.

It took two days, but I finally cried over the results of this election. Yesterday I was numb and heartbroken. Today, the reality of it sank in. Sadly, it has taken the very real threat of GW Bush to finally make me realize what it means to me to be American. It is no longer an opposition philosophy, but a positive belief in the freedoms enshrined in our Constitution, and the realization that these freedoms could go away. Yes, I am one who believes that these freedoms are now threatened by this reckless Administration.

It is not a time for despair, but a time for solemn vows.
