knit me more time...
Wednesday, November 03, 2004

Let me just say that if you have given up or are a repug being all smug this morning DON'T post to my blog with ANY crap like "told you so" or "just give up". Just don't do it. If you voted for Nader in Wisconsin, or Bush anywhere, I don't want to talk to you. where I am at this morning: * hung over (last beer around 2am) * I am sad and ANGRY that our voting is so full of fraud- Rove is behind it and it sickens me. * My TV is OFF. The mainstream news is just pulling for Bush making it look like he won. So, the media is not fooling me. * I was too optimistic. I admit it, okay? I underestimated the willingness of Rove/Bush Co. to swing this their way. I should have known they wouldn't give up so easily. It was too much to hope for a real, honest election. * Maybe it is not good to care so much- to invest so much in something. But, I just can't help it. I could build a pillow fort in my living room and hide from the world like a friend of mine used to do in college. giving me hope: (from the democraticunderground and other websites) * Bush is ahead by 130,000 votes in Ohio but there are 230,000 provisional ballots * Florida is too close to call for Kerry. 1 million absentee ballots not counted yet. Voting fraud being reported. * major voting machine problems in Iowa, Nevada and Wisconsin. * votes are missing folks. MASSIVE voter turnout recorded everywhere yet the final numbers show not much of an increase in turnout from 2000. As I kept saying last night, something isn't adding up. * people are fighting this- they are not giving up hope and I'll try not to too. But, I am also thinking of moving to Canada or England or Sweden or New Zealand. They need feminist sociologists too- right? Even though I don't want to give up on this country. Maybe through an election isn't a realistic way for us to take this country back- maybe we need a media and consumer revolution. Maybe the mass of blue states- upper midwest, new england, NY, Penn etc... could all join Canada. Let them have their religious, moral, facist country. Let them have more wars. Let them have a draft. Let them discriminate against people they don't like. Let them be ignorant and misinformed. We even experienced some voter fraud here in Wisconsin yesterday- it is under investigation and I will post about it later. As Wellstone used to say: never give up, never give up, never give up, never give up, never give up
