Are all the other countries laughing at us? Do they think our elections are a joke. With everything that has gone on with them in the past and now... I wouldnt doubt it. What do you think.

People know that im american in Wales. Every single class I've been to, people look at me with scorn as if I decided the entire election. The entire day theyve been confronting me and asking me why would the american people wish this upon the country. I just reply with a resounding 'I don't know'.

From what I have been reading, it seems that the rest of the world can not understand the majority decision. Could it be possible that other countries have a better understanding of the problems currently facing the US than our own citizens?

Taking into consideration that the WORLD is feeling the brunt of the rise in terrorism (due to Bushes war) then I think they have a legitimate beef.

I think they are rolling their eyes, shaking their heads, and simply dreading it, not laughing...

I think the world is sitting back and wondering why haven't we learned a damn thing over the past 4 years!

Bush supporters, are you happy today and feeling relief from the fear? Because half of the same nation feels sad because we've lost hope now..


Sorry if my country decides to wage war on your citizens and declare casualties of war on your family.

...and you'd be absolutely right, although I pretty much knew this would happen I was hoping I could be proved wrong. Sadly not.

Let them laugh all they want, we have the #1 democracy the world has ever seen. Our elections work better than any others as we do allow lawyers and situations like this to be handled through our constitutional process'. People in other countries may not like our choice but like I said in another thread, maybe its America standing up for themselves and telling the rest of the world that we dont care what others think, this is our vote, this is our country and this was OUR choice.

Well, I think that leaders of other nations, are in the planning of as how to control the war president elect for the next 4 years.

I feel that the rest of the world can see better that most american do about the mind of the leader of our nation because his desicions afect them directly.

I will not be surprised if the rest of the world will stand firm against bushes policies in the future.

I'm from Canada

And were in no win situation right now. The United States is our biggest trading partner and we rely on them for a huge part of the economy. If we stand firm with the world and say no to bush then we will face economic threats. If we go with Bush then we become hated by the world.

Being that Canada is a peaceful liberal nation I suggest we will choose Peace and the world over the United States.

We our entering a dark era on mankind

I dont think that is a correct statement at all. Our domestic policies do NOT affect them and our international policies about our security is honestly none of thier business. As far as them standing against Bush, they already are doing that so that will not make one bit of difference at all. Its funny, everyone across the pond is supposedly so upset with our selection yet they dont realize it is OUR decision, like it or not.

Thats simply not true. Canada and America are intertwined silently so to speak and almost nothing would change that. I can see one thing and thats alot of people overreacting.

I was just curious what everyones views on this..... Everything seems so confusing and the country is so divided to be such a strong country. Maybe thats what makes us a great country to be so divided on other issues but when terrible things happen we can stand together as one.

Unlike partisan liberals I dont see America as a your vote or my vote situation, I look at is as an American and this was a American choice and therefor if your American your part of the process. If you don't like the process or the results maybe your to sensitive to be voting on issues this important in the first place.
