i honestly am sort of ashamed to be american. outside from my personal views, bush's victory negates entire theories in political science and electoral theory. none of this makes any sense to me.

Your problem is that you have a Party-system and an election-system that sucks because it isn't adapted to modern society...

Look at all other democratic countries and try to name one with just two major parties, I mean of course that must make it hard to agree with a candidate on all issues.

Well, people got upset with Ralph Nader this time around because they thought he'd lose the election for Kerry...

May God help us all. The 51% of Americans who voted for W will live to regret their decision. And people like me, who live in NYC, will be the ones who pay for their ignorance.

However I think you made a bad choice...but that's a completley different story....
We have no problem. Americans are very conservative and religion, and religion is NOT a problem. I don't know any religious bigots. Of course, I live in a very great state with a very great religious group.

"Great America" always rub the nose where there's something to gain. Be it money or more power.

The US don't rub the nose on NI cause they won't gain nothing there... where's the petrol?

And don't rub that stinky nose in Africa... cause there the ppl only need HELP and doesn't have any money/petrol to give...
We are great people, and we do great things in Africa.

Who's Ken Jennings?

We just got a new governor, and like seems to be the trend with me, I didn't vote for him, but I'm content with him. They were BOTH very good and upstanding competitors and it was a very good, clean, and amicable race.

You clearly have no concept of humane policies, of equal rights for homosexuals, of funding for AIDS in Africa, of the need for bilateral not unilateral military action in the world's troublespots, and you don't care about yuor fellow citizens who are less well off than you.

I know the 51% don't care about the opinions of the rest of the world, but you need to know that we in Ireland and Britain, and most people in the rest of the world are truly sickened by your decision to re-elect this ignorant, homophobic rednecked moron who just loves to kill innocent people for kicks and glories in the isolation that he is imposing on his nation. I have to say those Americans I have talked to this morning are equally disgusted, some of them have already faced verbal abuse as a result of yesterday's vote, and I really believe that U2 should call off their US tour in protest. Yes, its unfair on the 49%, yes its unfair on people who can't vote, but America has spoken, and its time for them to face some consequences. You have a wanker for a President, and the majority of your voting population are bigots. You don't deserve U2. I know they won't call off the tour, but this will never stop me wishing that they did.

God help the world, the remaining decent Americans for God's sake start looking for a job in Canada or Europe, your country has abandoned you.
Thanks for your words my friend. You represented how people here in South America and other parts of the world are feeling now. I really hope Bush empire will fall and U.S people gives peace a chance by stop believing in such criminals like George Bush.

I take this as irony rather than denial....

But saying there isn't a problem is the largest problem of all....

And I'm sorry, but please allow Hawk269 his opinion. He lives in NY and I think he has every right to feel the way that he does.

It's just your opinion. Remember that. People seem to forget that there is a lot of other people in this world with very different opinions from your own.

no he doesnt, when you write something like this

"May God help us all. The 51% of Americans who voted for W will live to regret their decision. And people like me, who live in NYC, will be the ones who pay for their ignorance."

he's calling all Bush voters ignorant, and he is assuming for some stupid reason that NY is going to get hit first with some attack, I love the attitude of americans, it sucks, listen to yourselves.
