There is talk that the turnout may be as high as 75%! I would love it if that many people exercised their rights! Of course 100% is perfect, but that's not going to happen. I think turnout was below 50% in 2000. I don't have the numbers however.

I understand that, electing your leader, you will be more concerned about your country's interests. But those who think (and I'm not saying you're one of them) that the US can keep going like that, being more and more disrespected by the rest of the world, and be more safe at the end of the day live in a world of illusion, sorry.

Some Americans can keep saying they don't care about the rest of the world (which is essentially what Bush has been saying) all they want, but America is simply not *that* strong that it can do without the support of others.

I am from Canada, and I lived in the US for two years, I have many American friends and know very well that Americans cannot be put all in the same basket, and that the current administration is not an accurate representation of how the population is.

Now Canada is not exactly an anti-American country. But lately I have witnessed such an almost unanimous wave of anti-Bushism, becoming more and more anti-Americanism, that it's almost scary. People are not even careful before they express their resentment towards the US at this point.

I would even go as far as saying that, at this point, not only are there more and more people who want to kill Americans every day, but less and less people will feel sorry about it when it happens again.

I know that looks harsh, but that's reality. You can say you don't care about what the world thinks all you want, but at the end of the day this bulliyng attitude is not making anyone safer, and certainly not Americans.

That being said, I have faith in the American people, and I hope you will kick-out this idiot out of the White House. The world is watching...

I know I can't change anyone's mind, and I'm not using this post as sel-promotion either. I was thinking last night, and I was actually considering whether President Bush was the proper president to support, and this thought from my psychology class came to mind.

Check it out if you get the chance:

Just got back from voting...walked a whole block to my poll location, it was in a retirement home, stood in line for an hour and voted. The Republicans tried their last ditch effort by passing out flyers with the Republican canidates at the street corner. There was a hundred year old woman in front of me in line she reminded me that she was voting before I was born. But then there was another lady behind me that thought she was in line for bingo, she forgot today was election day.

I voted for Kerry at 8:45(approxiamatly) this morning.

This is gonna be ridiculously close. At electoral-vote.com, it's been updated, and it's say Kerry is going to win by ONE VOTE, 262-261. Insanity.

If that's the case there will be another long fight.

I voted weeks ago but now I want an "I voted" button.
