Well, the illegitimate Bush administration is about to come to an end. Our nation is in hideous shape because that mentally retarded asswipe was allowed to sit in the White House for eight years. Our economy is on the brink of collapse. The rest of the Earth looks upon us with hatred and disfavor. We have been, since 2003, engaged in mass murder and crimes against humanity. We have allowed corporate pigs to dictate governmental and environmental policy to the detriment of both.
But you know what?
It's our own fault. Yours, mine, ours. When the election of 2000 was so obviously and blatantly rigged, and then that of 2004, we did nothing. In contrast to the citizens of so many nations over the past couple of decades, the people of the USA did absolutely nothing while the retarded son of a billionaire spymaster was plugged into the highest seat of power on Earth.
We did not complain.
We did not revolt.
We did not protest.
We did not fill the streets with a show of force and righteous indignation.
We have gotten bloody well what we all deserve.
