I hate being American

I've decided I hate being American. I want Utah to secede from the union. I like Utah.

I voted for Kerry. I voted for him for a reason. I wish he had won. I do not have confidence in Bush. I don't think things will get better with him. I didn't like that he said it would be more of the same, like I would be happy to hear that.

I am conservative, but I voted for Kerry. So did many conservatives I know. Why oh why didn't he win? At least then there would've been a CHANGE, ANY change, some kind of change.

I'm glad I voted for Kerry. I'm proud I did, I think a lot rested on it.

Now, we're doomed, because 51% voted for Bush. I really don't know why. Sure, he's more likeable, but so what? Actually, I thought Kerry looked pretty likeable, too. I feel really bad that Kerry lost.

I can't hide the things that made me vote for Kerry.

I don't want to be killed because 51% voted for Bush. And I'll tell you this, no matter WHO is president of the U.S., I will INDEED leave the country myself if my son is ever threatened with going to war for ANY president. I won't do it. War is over. It's a new day.

I absolutely hate what Bush did over in Iraq. I am very frustrated. Very.

But, you know what, instead of complaining and whining and picking people apart because of it, we need to stand up and fight HARDER and that does include backing up people like Bono. Truly.

Truly, the only solace is he only has four more years...hey, those who are for peace, PLEASE get your butts in shape and get a better candidate next time...and keep your mouths shut, and learn how to win!!!

Hey, I just noticed I'm an acrobat. Is there something between the fly and acrobat? How many posts turns you into an acrobat?

I voted for Bush, I love being a Christian American, and I'm proud that the majority of voters agree with my leader and I. I just can't wait for 2008 until I can flush Hillary, just like I flushed the Johns on Tuesday and flushed all the far-left Hollywood libs who lack morals and values.

I hope Hilary runs, actually, because I think it's time for a woman president, and I want a Democrat, and I will vote for her.

Wow. I think I'd vote for her, too. I know she's very smart.

My point is, basically, is that it's time for a woman president in the U.S. of old A.

I think BOTH Hilary and Condoleeza (?) would be good candidates, and being an independent, I could go either way. Just, we need a major change, and I can't think of anything more majore than this one. And, being as they are women, I think either of them from either party will do a better job.

Oh, I wish I could laugh, too, but...eh. I really like Bush, I really do. I PREFERRED to vote for him, but he's just too reckless for me.

I'm not laughing, that post just reminded me of something an evil cartoon villian might say, with the "my leader and I" bit . . . all that was missing was the evil laugh to go along with it

I vented and I feel so much better. Just had to get that off my chest. Like I stated in another thread, I still don't think it would be a bad idea for Utah to secede from the U.S. of A., though. However, being right in the center of it...

I think its pretty funny that you want Utah to suceed because Bush won the election. Do you realize that Bush won 71% of the vote in Utah? In fact, Bush won a higher percentage of the vote than any other state in the U.S.A.

Oh, it's not because of Bush that I want to. It's because of the rest of the world.
