I'm incredibly disappointed now but not (and this shocks me) in the slightest bit surprised with the results. What worries me now is that the prediction I made four years ago is one step closer to coming true.
This pathological idiot is going to drag the planet into another World War.
To the Americans on my Flist, you have my sympathies for the next four years, but can I also make this plea to you. Be aware of what's going on in the world around you. News presented on American television focuses solely on America - I know this, you know this, everyone knows this. But television is not the only source of news - BBC News, Reuters, World News, Google World News
all of these and more - please know that there is a hell of a lot going on outside the borders of the USA. I know most of you on my flist already know this, but I also know how easy it is to skip past the international section of the newspaper or to tune out of the "and in world news" section on a broadcast.
As smhwpf puts it: 'democracy doesn't start on election day, and it doesn't end there'
