It is a dark day for democracy, for freedom in the
world's biggest superpower. Apparently, Republicans
are going to be in control of Congress, and there will
be no balance of power. Our so called "President's"
administration is a joke, but not a funny one.
Apparently, his tactic of trying to invade a third
world country just to get more oil and to look
patriotic has worked. IT divided and conquered the
Democrats (who are no good themselves) and our stupid
media makes him look like a hero for it. I'm sure many
of you in other countries have a different angle. 
Well I must echo again and again, that he is as
idiotic and as dangerous as ever, and even more
emphatically, NOT MY PRESIDENT. He is the first
American dictator, and I don't mean this rhetorically.
He was NOT democratically elected, yet this time
around, his manipulation worked differently, and all
too well. I underestimated the intelligence of the
American public when I thought most people would see
right through it (Why has Enron disappeared off the
front page?) Our system of democracy, of checks and
balances is now dead, it has now failed and
malfunctioned. It has been sick for years, granted,
but now its flatlining. Bush will not stop;slowly but
surely, he will take away more freedom of expression,
kill everybody who disagrees with him, and it will
happen right before our very eyes, subtly but

Its better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.
