American Idiots

http://cherryteresa.greatestjournal.com/2004/11/04/

There’s so much I want to say I don’t even know where to begin. Green Day’s “American Idiot” sums up a lot of what I’m feeling. I am so angry and disappointed in the American people.

How could so many people vote Bush? And why were there issues in Ohio?! The same issues Florida had back in 2000. Ohio was still using the old punch cards with the pregnant chad issues, yada yada yada. COME ON! Why didn’t they fix this? Hmm…. lemme see… because Ohio is such a big state with many electoral votes. Coincidence?! And we all know the issues with Florida. I don’t know if I should be more angry if Bush really did win this election or if he really didn’t win it like he didn’t really win it the last election. What would make me pissed? I dunno. But I am angry he is our President and that he will continue to be for another four years. You know what they should do? If they re-instate the draft, the people who voted Bush should be the ones to go. Not the people who voted for Kerry, Nader, etc. I could go on and on forever about this but I’m not going to because I will just frustrate myself.

I am very disappointed in the many states that put restrictions on gay rights. Ohio voted yes to define marriage as being between a man and a woman. I used to live in Ohio for years and was planning on maybe someday moving back. I’ve suddenly changed my mind on that.

The only good thing I can say is that there was a high turnout of people voting. I’m so glad everyone voted. But I am afraid the overwhelming majority of voters were not educated at all at what they were doing. You don’t have to know everything about everything but some people just really had no clue as to what their candidate was about.
