History, Please Forgive Us

My family and I are completely disheartened and embarrassed to be Americans right now.



We are becoming ruled by bible thumping war mongerers.



What we have unleashed on the world, in the name of THE NEVER-ENDING WAR ON TERROR, is a nightmare in which we have chosen not to awaken from.



To all_our European and northern brothers, we progressive Americans are truly, heart-felt sorry for our short sighted, stupid, irrational public.



We truly tried to correct the severe wrongs with our current administration, but we failed. We are simply out numbered by our ignorant southern countrymen with their fingers stuck in their ears.



To be honest I am a afraid for our country and the world.



Bush and Cheney will now rule without any fear of political recrimination. Our constition will now be forever bloodied with hate. Our warmongering ways have been ratified and approved. The rich will become even richer. The poor will suffer and pay all the bills. They care about their money more than the well-being of others. They value religion over science. They believe that the war in Iraq was a good thing. They (inexplicably) think the war on terror has been a success.

    I truly understand your feelings. In a short term this is not good.

    In the long term who knows ?



    Bush have left an heritage : the Irak war and the national debt. Kerry would have been in trouble to try to fix this issues, because honestly it won't be a cakewalk. Bush will have to fix the mess he create himself. That's a good thing in the long term for democrats.

    Yes, taking the responsibility for the fuck-up he made.



    I'm kinda glad he got in.



    Bible-thumping warmongers, they tried it before, it was called the dark-ages.

    That's your problem. The majority of AMERICANS rejected your allegedly superior view of the world. Unfortunately as this election has clearly illustrated, your point of view does not reflect those held by most Americans so don't condemn them for having a different view. We are in no way inferior - just different. So go ahead and cry - you won't get any sympathy from me. We had to take four years of your ridiculous lies and toally unfounded accusations and it is now clear that there has been a quiet but very audible backlash against your petty partisan ways.

    No. The majority of voting Americans. And yes, I know that's the fault of the idiotic non-voting Americans as much as it is the fault of that idiotic majority of voting Americans.

    most of you guys posting in this thread act so UN-American, that i thought that you were european socialists, before i looked at the "From" part of yer user info...

    Seems to me that many americans won't vote a president out of office during a war. That's pretty orwellian if you ask me...

    > The majority of AMERICANS rejected your allegedly superior view of the world





    I still can't understand how WAR could be superior to PEACE !?!?



    Terrorism is not the ony problem Americans have to face (public health care system, unemployment?) but it's a shame to vote for G.W.Bush who killed 1000's of US soldiers and 100 000's of civil iraqi people for nothing.



    Why nothing ? US won't be more secure after the war than before (it's quite the same for the other coutries). Terrorism will still exist: this war was unnecessary.

    Ah, it?s all starting to come back.



    Die Fahne hoch, die Reihen fest geschlossen

    S.A. marschiert mit ruhig festem Schritt

    Kam'raden, die Rotfront und Reaktion erschossen

    Marschier'n im Geist in unsern Reihen mit



    Die Strasse frei den braunen Bataillonen

    Die Strasse frei dem Sturmabteilungsmann

    Es schau'n aufs Hakenkreuz voll Hoffnung schon Millionen

    Der Tag für Freiheit und für Brot bricht an



    Zum letzen Mal wird nun Appell geblasen

    Zum Kampfe steh'n wir alle schon bereit

    Bald flattern Hitler-fahnen über allen Strassen

    Die Knechtschaft dauert nur mehr kurze Zeit



    Die Fahne hoch, die Reihen fest geschlossen

    S.A. marschiert mit ruhig festem Schritt

    Kam'raden, die Rotfront und Reaktion erschossen

    Marschier'n im Geist in unsern Reihen mit



    (English Translation)

    Flag high, ranks closed,

    The S.A. marches with silent solid steps.

    Comrades shot by the Red Front and reaction

    march in spirit with us in our ranks.



    The street free for the brown battalions,

    The street free for the Storm Troopers.

    Millions, full of hope, look up at the swastika;

    The day breaks for freedom and for bread.



    For the last time the call will now be blown;

    For the struggle now we all stand ready.

    Soon will fly Hitler-flags over every street;

    Slavery will last only a short time longer.



    Flag high, ranks closed,

    The S.A. marches with silent solid steps.

    Comrades shot by the Red Front and reaction

    march in spirit with us in our ranks.



    Silly blind countrymen, don't you know tricks are for kids! Hunting imaginary terrorist is just the beginning.

    Aaah..... The Horst Wessel song
  • segoviussegovius Posts: 9,872member
    Yep, takes you back....



    .......or forward.

    @Relic



    you know, I don't agree with Bush's polietics either. But starting to drag up the Horst Wessel Lied is more then a tad over the top, really.



    The good thing that may come from this is that the NASA Mars program might still recive the funding that it needs. :-/



    Ah well, we'll have to wait and see I guess.

    Yeah, you're probably right. I just can?t help but feel I?ve seen this show before.

    The people have spoken. America is turning to the right and returning to our Christian values. We are rejecting the secular European socialist ways of thinking. The people made a stand yesterday. The President has a vote of support. The people like what he is doing. I know that is hard for the left that spent its time and money ranting about the President and why we should all hate him. Truth is we like him and we like the things he does.

    I do not disagree with this at all. I think every word of it is true (not the spelling and spacing issues, of course, but the point is clear).



    The only difference between you and I is that you seem to look at that as a good thing.

    It is the final abandonment of reason and the surrender to emotionalism.



    I only hope that in four years time there's still a way back and no irreversible damage has been done.



    Btw - is it really all over for Kerry ? Even though Ohio isn't in ?
  • groveratgroverat Posts: 10,872member
    Yes, it is over for Kerry. It was over for Kerry before it started. Anyone who thought he actually had a chance was just being delusional (no offense intended).



    It took a Herculean effort on the part of the Democratic party for Kerry to "only" lose the popular vote by 4 million. This country wants George.

    A dark day for america. The ones who voted for Bush deserve what they get in the next four years ( and it won't be pretty ). Our economic " recovery " is already starting to sputter. The problem is the rest of us don't deserve this. And before you Bush lovers crow too loud it wasn't a landslide.
