Well they say you don't change your horse whilst in the middle of crossing the river.
The election has shown that the majority of Americans approve of their current aggressive foreign policy.

A sad day for the world.

I have many thoughts about this election:

Fisrt of all, coming from Mexico who happened to have the MOST corrupt electoral body on earth till 1996 and lasted for 70 years.
I always wondered how is that these bastards (the Instituional Revoilutionary party) won by a landslide? I whatched them sweep elections, and people were jobless, in Mysery, sick , with a poverty level not even worthy of a third world country....!
I ALWAYS WONDERED, then the change in th eelectoral college came and its now recognized in the world that the Mexican electoral system is one of the most advanced (So advanced that the US and the U.N. brought the Iraqui electoral college to Mexico to copy our system and to be trained for the upcoming January elections)

The the Instituional Revoilutionary party won so many elections because of lies, tax cuts and handovers and basically feeding people with TV soap operas and ignorance, also people had like Inertia (..I always vote like this so Ill continue)...

Well GWB won because of the popular vote,I dont care about states or anything BOTTOM line he has the support of the majority of the US voters, why dont the US forsake this weird scheme and go to the popular vote count is beyond me, so in a way if you live in a bigger state (electorally wise) your vote counts more than ..say hawai !!!

As I predicted some weeks ago today there is beetween 48 and 49% pissed Us citizens because the guy they voted for lost....Bush a Uniter?

let me vent

HHAHAHAHAH AH AHA HA AHHAHAHAHA HA AHHAHAHA HAHAHAHHAHA AH AHAHAH AH AHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA cof cof cof........
HHAHAHAHAH AH AHA HA AHHAHAHAHA HA AHHAHAHA HAHAHAHHAHA AH AHAHAH AH AHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA mmmmm ajem..mmmmm

some say that we non Us citizens dont have any bussines in the election AND YOU ARE RIGHT but the US policies affects all the world.

Canada and Mexico for example would be greatly affected by the US jingoistic policies and economic backtrack, and if the dollar continues to sink so will our economies, and if there is a Bankrupcy in the States because of the deficit we all go drown the drain.
Mexico now has a probable presidential candidate that is quite dangerous, he is a certified Wacko and a fascist ( QUIET LIKE NORIEGA or CHAVEZ in VENEZUELA) do you think the US will not do anything to stop this guy to get to power in 2006?
Do you think GWB will stop at anything to stop a guy who can stops selling 2.5 million barrels a day and millions of BTUS in natural gas to the US?
what would happen (GOD FORBID) if athere is an attack and its discovered the perpetrators entered the US by the south OR NORTH border? do you think GWB will not invade to "ensure national US security?

If you think the election of the US president has no repecutions on the world Think again...
one thing is sure, you will have to endure criticism from the outside of the US for 4 more years, a war in Iraq for maybe longer and higher inflation.
Me in the mean time will change my savings to Euros since the dollar now is cheap, and move away from my ties to the US economy call it cowardly but I have worked my a$$ for 15 years to see it down the drain because some Invasion of a middle east country.

Peace

And when the election is all said and done, republican's are going to be rubbing it in our faces, name calling (like my husband has already started to do like a little #ing child) and telling us, he's our president whether we like or not so just shup up and deal with it.

And while they have their asses bent over in sheer confidence the world is going to be nodding their heads and rolling their eyes because they know the record bush has built in the previous 4 yrs, and they know what his record will continue to be built on.

Being duped by the bush administration in the past should of set a precendence but hell no, how can you see what's going on when you got your head in the dirt and your butt in the air because he's part of your party.

using personal tradegies to be used in his campaign, sending troops in iraq for his own personal agenda, using god as part of his campaign when clearly he is a godless mother #er. it's just sickening.

probally. cause the vast majority of your average europeans and japanees are a hell of alot smarter than you average, but the thing is if thyere so smart why cant they put a man in space?

They aren't laughing, they are worried Bush will cause a nuclear war. He is invading countries because god tells him, blames the people who told him not to when it turns out it was a bad move, then threatens the world by killing the economy, killing off alliances, and basically becoming hated. Several countries have declared Bush a War Criminal, including Japan.(So you can't say, "Well, it's just the nations like Yemen or Iran.") Also, who is next? Iran and other countires with oil hate Bush because they know he wants to invade them. The rest just hate Bush because he invades countries for this reason, switches that, switches again, then switches, switches, then finally blames the people who told him not to invade for the screw up. Damn it, those provisional ballots better make Kerry win, would love that, Kerry gives up, Bush thinks he has won, then bam, provisional ballots are counted and Bush loses.

- I don't think it's about smarts as such.

We're probably much more experienced as nations and what happens when we're dumb enough to seriously screw with each other and attempt to dominate and how short-term all that nonsense is anyway, yes.

......and as for space? We do plenty of the profitable space stuff.

We don't go a bundle on the manned stuff but even there we now have plenty of our people that been into space.....we just let the US and Russia spend the fortunes necessary making it kind of safe-ish and hitch a ride there.

See, smart again.

Right about now the world is in shock. To think that the people of this country, the blessed country of the West would allow Bush & his army of thugs 4 more years is beyond anyones comprehension.
They know we will all live to be very sorry.:shk:

Not laughing...not even by surprised by Bush's win...

...actually, what I am doing is waiting for some chickens to come home to roost and wake to the news a nuclear device has been detonated in a large American metro area...you won't see a look of surprise then either...

Who cares about the World?. Thousands of people are getting killed throughout the world, but you dont get to see that on CNN.
US is at war. People get killed. Innocents will die
Those who killed the Native Americans are the ones who paved the way for you to be at your computer right now

I don't consider myself an expert on the domestic politics of other nations.

I try to stay informed, keep track of who the leaders are and the major issues facing other nations, but I cannot imagine that I am better suited to make political decisions for them than their respective populations are.

Moreover, I don't have any way of actually changing the political situation in any nation other than my own, so kibbitzing them is pointless. Rather, I try to understand what factors lead them to make the choices they do, and respect their right to do so.

If people of every nation somehow saw fit to see things this way, perhaps we would get along better with one another.

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.


The reason you require teams of Lawyers to be on hand for the elections is purely because your Election system is flawed. It seems every year with your elections there's some major foul-up. You do not have a system that works better than any others. If anything, You have a system that tends to work worse than any other in the Western democratic world, and is more open to abuse.


You also don't have number 1 democracy in the world, a quick look around this board as regards erosion of civil liberties and suchlike is evidence enough of that.

On a personal level, you appear to bear all the traits of a typically insular American, blind to anything that happens beyond your own coastline. You'd benefit greatly if you took the time to take a short trip outside of your cosested little nest and look inwards for once. Then maybe you'd understand why a huge chunk of the world hate you, another huge chunk laugh at you, and the final chunk are left staring in open-mouthed disbelief at your rampant paranoia and stupidity.

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.


The world has been suffering from terrorism before Bush was in office....and many people in the world are just not accepting that the citizens in the US made "our own decision" without them telling us how or who we should vote for.

How many times have other countries told the US to mind it's own business....

The elections of the US are decided by the people in the US, not by the world....

Hmmmm...2 skull and bones illuminati's or a dude that cant keep one eye open, man what a freakin choice.

Since there isnt a "none of the above" box, i made my choice by not choosing and packing for the hills.

World plans(plans that involve the entire world) take decades, possible centuries to implement, not days or weeks or even a 4 yr stint.

Wake up American Sheeples and stand up for your life and future of your family/community/country.. {ok im done venting about bushes reelection}

Yes, your pity and your socialistic/communistic ideas are yours to keep, but not for you, or the rest of the world, to impose on the US....

Trulies...the laughing and the name calling has come from democrats/liberals....and you can see it all over these boards...

Look at the threads on ATSNN...all i see are liberals/democrats venting their "anger" (and here I thought they are supposed to be peaceful people...and very open-minded....
)

Gee, it's hard to understand why Americans behave the way we do, in light of heartwarming sentiments such as these.

Indeed, why should we be so insular when fine company such as this awaits us just outside our borders?

I can't think of anything more appealing than exposing myself to abuse and insult at the hands of pretentious, self-inflated bigots, yet somehow I'm strangely repulsed by the idea.

Must be that American ignorance raising its ugly head -- ignorance being a lifetime curse for a backward, provincial, hillbilly caricature such as myself.

And God forbid that any American should hold himself as equal to -- let alone superior to -- those whose deportment is so gracious and humble.

After all, Americans are so arrogant, clearly lacking the polite, deferential sensibilities exemplified by Sabby2.

You may not want to realize that what you are criticizing as "American" is nothing more than your own reflection in the mirror.
