The nation has spoken and George Bush is president once again. Apparently many citizens find the behavior of two same-sex consenting adults behind closed doors more disturbing than unemployment, hunger, medically uninsured families, the gutting of public education, environmental destruction and the dissolution of our Constitution.
Values and morals as defined by this group have nothing whatsoever to do with compassion and mercy. And how exactly does one "choose life" while advocating for war and the death penalty?
We are being asked to unite as a country. I, for one, find that impossible. I will not back an illegal, horrific war, tax cuts for the wealthy at the expense of my hard-working fellows, and flagrant bigotry and prejudice. Our populace has been manipulated by fear and ignorance. These next four years will prove long, indeed.
