Welcome To Democracy

Welcome to Democracy, Ladies and Gentlemen. This is freedom. The freedom to vote for whomsoever you want in an election. And The Chimpgimp secured the popular vote by over three million. That’s a helluva lot of hillbillies. You would think that Democracy was a good thing, that it allows people to elect whom they want to govern them. You would hope that people would use this freedom wisely and choose a good leader. So what does the rest of the world do when a country chooses a despot? We may well be looking at the next Hitler. To say Hitler did a lot of damage before he was stopped is somewhat of an understatement. What will George Bush be allowed to get away with? Are the people of Iran and North Korea bracing themselves? For surely that is where the war will go next. What can be done to show those Bush supporters the error of their ways? They just don’t care. They don’t give a rat’s ass about his foreign policy, because it doesn’t affect their trip to McDonald’s. That Bush’s foreign policy is directly responsible for a huge number of deaths of innocent people is immaterial to them. It would be nice if someone had the answers, but it seems to me that the majority of people in this world don’t care about anyone but themselves. I don’t know what can be done to change that. I don’t believe in God and I don’t believe in religion, but those right-wing Christian Bushites do, and it gives me some comfort to think that they will burn in hell. Enjoy your Dunkin Donuts while there are people on this planet literally dying of starvation. It is a truly truly depressing day.
