America: They gave us the simpsons, for that I am eternally grateful. This proves that at least some are very intelligent. Those I have met have all been friendly and generous. Yet, dispite all of this, the majority of voters voted for Bush. Thus I reach a certain conclusion: American idiots vote. No offence to any that did vote for Bush, I don't pretend to know enough about american politics to condone Kerry and some people may have had good reasons to not vote for him, but surely the majority of americans have not anylised the effect of Kerry on the stock market. Thus most will have voted on the grounds of those things that the politicians have been bringing to their attention, such as (wait for it...) the war on terror and of course the speeches. On these grounds alone, who could possibly vote FOR Bush (as oppose to AGAINST Kerry) since the man is clearly not intelligent enough for such an important possition. Anyone who has seen him talking about tribal soverignty ("soverign entities") will know this. This proves that Plato was right; democracy is fundamentally flawed because the people simply don't know what's best for them. Think about it, in a meritocracy governed by selfless individuals chosen purely on grounds of intelligence, practicalty, morality and those other qualities that dictate suitability for such a role, would Bush be a member of the government? Hell no. So, if you happen to be an american idiot who voted for Bush on the basis of the drivel he says and the war on terror, well done for getting of your ass and voting. It's better than appathy after all. Just please think harder next time.
Why the hell am I on the computer at 1 in the morning? No, don't answer.
I can't believe it either, but then again, most of the younger voters (18-29) don't vote, which really sucks because they tend to be more liberal.
And what's worse is that the Republicans now control all the branches of government
Once again, America is being run by someone who can't even run a business right. I think most people voted for Kerry simply because HE ISN'T BUSH. The guy has an IQ of under 100 for christ sake, and americans are opting to let HIM make decisions? Might as well start voting grade school kids to be president.
Also, the 'war on terror' didn't really solve anything. In my opinion it only made America look really really really sad: Here we are, a HUGE global powerhouse called the United States of America pouring in billions and trillions of dollars into military research etc etc. They're enemy is a little third world country's terrorist reginme. Each time they fire a multi-million dollar satelite laser guided missel at a targeted terrorist hideout resulted in maybe 4-5 terrorist casualties plus maybe 45-50 civilian deaths. Despite all the elite training their troops had, one of them actually threw a primed gernade into his own tent. After thousands of civilian death's and hundreds of dead troops, did they capture Bin Laden? No.
So whats GWB got to say for it all? "I'm trying to avoid another September the 11th". Good job, GB, good job.

I'm glad that bush won. He is way better than kerry. Why does everyone think bush will lead us into the next world war. Within the next four years I will be old enough to vote and I shall vote for Nader. That 70 year old man has never had any hope. Let's make his last years on this planet a good one. Nader 2008!

Yeah, I am, like 12 years old chicken. Kinda like 11 though. And just becuase I am young doesn't mean that I don't know what's going on in our country. I did my reaserch on both Kerry and Bush, and decided that I should pick the lesser of the 2 evils. I debated for hours with a bunch of highschool aged Kerry supporters and shot down every attack against Bush.
By the way, make your own sandwitch. 12 year olds apparently don't know enough to even make sandwitches. Think before opening your mouth.

"Isn't it always amazing how we characterize a person's intelligence by how closely their thinking matches ours?"
I'd vote for Bush simply because Kerry's also an idiot who could potentially destroy the economy. If you've watched him on the debates, he hardly knew what he was talking about (neither did Bush, but he debated better). And if America's economy falls, so would most of the world's economy. After all, America does consume more stuff...
In a meritocracy, people from Yale probably wouldn't even get a chance at being president. Democracy proves that those idiotic blue collar workers who watch too much TV vote. And they know nothing cept what the media tells them. I hate American media. >:/
