For starters....to keep yelling "the majority has spoken" is absurd....making it sound like there was a win by like 75% or something, there wasn't....it was 51% "1%" people.....secondly....no one kills themselves over an election, music, a movie, or a video game unless they have deep emotional stability problems and mental issues to begin with!

Finally I think that it is time that anew party somewhere between the antiquated Democrats and Republicans was erected. Both parties have outlived its value and have drowned in its need for entrenched power. The American people will always just be a pawn to politicians untill they say "Enough".
I think we should all say a prayer, to which ever God we pray to, for this poor man who felt so lost.
Well, let's be accurate... the republic was 140,000 votes shy of selecting the alternative. (that's 0.12% of all votes) So the reality is that Bush won by 140,000 votes. Intense personal stress is a likely outcome of the highly divisive rhetoric that came from both parties over the past year or so. Look at the reports of U.S. citizens looking at other countries because of the election disappointment. While highly tragic... I think this may be the "tip of the iceberg" of similar events.

Um, I only quoted two people the whole time I've been a member, and I had 20 points deducted for quoting too much. Perhaps that is just the reason they gave me. Maybe I had them deducted because I'm a Bush supporter.
I know, It's Bush's fault!!!! Hell, all you liberals blame him for everything else, I might as well blame him for having 20 points taken away!
